By G. R. Holton

I was sitting here thinking about my getting older and how some things are going on in my life. I am sure every one of us knows someone who is sick with cancer or some other major life threatening disease. It makes me really contemplate how I am spending my time. Nowadays I seem to be wasting a lot of time with Facebook and playing silly computer games and not really getting out there and doing things. I guess what I am really asking is… How do you keep yourself motivated as you get older and can’t do the things you used to do? We all have our attacks of arthritis or breathing issues. But we still need to keep moving or you end up like me gaining more weight than I really need to be carrying.

What motivates you each and every day is the question? Is it just the desire to continue? Is it your children or grandchildren? Or is it something larger? Is it the feeling of something that you have not really completed?

What are some of your hobbies that keep you active and feeling alive? I would love to hear about them and what really keeps you going each day. I know that I have posed a lot of questions, but maybe they are the same that many of us contemplate each and every day.

I love riding off road motorcycles with my buddies. We enjoy great times together. I like riding my road bicycle and mountain bike too, and all three disciplines keeps me in shape. I continue to fight the aging process, kicking and screaming!
