When Being Ageless Is Not Good News

Most women I know would appreciate being told they are ageless.

This would mean that they have stayed looking good, appearing fit despite their age.

Well, I like being told I’m ageless 🙂

A few months back I was able to see the 2015 released movie The Age of Adaline. It features the beautiful Blake Lively. It also stars the veteran actor, Harrison Ford.

The movie traces the intriguing story of Adaline, the woman who stopped aging. As the years go on and on, she stayed 29 years old.

While there are other themes explored in the story like love lost and found (or redefined), what caught my attention was the reality that not everything we might desire would always be good for us.

We might like, want to look ageless, be ageless but can we really enjoy it while others, our loved ones particularly, continue to age?

The years take a toll on them and they ultimately pass away while we remain the same. We see this in the movie as Adaline’s daughter ages, as her dog ages and dies while she remains beautiful and untouched by the passing years.

What a lonely life it appeared to be. What a lonely life it can be. To be ageless is not always good news.
