This is crazy; my email somehow got on the distribution list for AARP! Granted, I'm not necessarily young, but at 41, I'm hardly ready for AARP. Yet, I keep on getting emails with pleads to join AAPR so I can "live life to the fullest". Today's email suggested I could be "Be Like Betty"....Betty White, that is.
But there are at lot of other people I'd like to be like. The fellow homeschooler that seems to have more hours in her day than the rest of us...how does she do it? Or the person in the church band that has a beautiful voice, very unlike my own voice that inspires others to cover their ears. Oh, and the disciplined jogger with the trim body that passes by my house every day. I wish I'd be that motivated. That very patient mom...yeah, I'd like to be like her, too.
I'm certainly not old enough to "Be Like Betty", so I have no idea how I even got into the sights of AARP. However, the good thing is, I don't need to pay $16/month and get a free travel bag to try to "be like" anyone. Aside from the beautiful voice, I pretty much have control at striving toward certain qualities "to be" like those I admire, and making those qualities of my own. At 41, I have many more years to practice on improving myself. Sorry, Betty and AARP.
