Half Dead; Yet Cheerfully Optimistic

There’s a Limited Time Offer for Leaving a Good Looking Corpse

It’s true, we're not getting any younger, but what’s worse than those thinning, gray hairs and crow’s feet, is the fact that we could live to be 100 and beyond. Congratulations may be in order, if you’re officially a senior citizen. But whether you feel gorgeous and great or half dead, you should still be cheerfully, optimistic because the good news is your version may be updated soon.

Like many of my generation, I refuse to wander quietly, down incontinence alley. Instead chronic aches and pains represent only minor debilitating smudges, on a once perfect body design. Us Baby Boomers, cut our teeth on the notion of dying young, and leaving a good looking corpse. While we may hate the thought of getting older, the alternative is worse.

If you’re bothered by gravity constantly pushing you down, obsessively and compulsively worried that Murphy’s Law will throwing you under the bus; then you’re probably not going to enjoy your extra time on planet Earth. You should realize, the future was never promised to us to begin with. So we have to make the most of what we’ve got. What’s the point of extending our life expectancy if we’re going to be miserable? Quality of life is at least as important as quantity.

Scientists believe human life can be greatly extended in the near future. If science has its way—human life can be extended indefinitely, provided they figure out how to prevent the death of the cell. New advancements are being made daily in the fields of bioengineering, nanotechnology and medicine. And futurists are getting very excited.

It turns out, if we can keep our bodies running just well-enough, we will eventually be able to replace failed organs by growing our own new parts. Science has found the gene that is responsible for aging. And it’s only a matter of time before growing older won’t be quite so painful. Until then, maintenance is essential if we’re to happily Segway to our golden years. There are many things that we can do to improve our overall health. No matter what kind of shape you’re in, there is reason to be cheerfully optimistic. Join me in discovering, how we can break this limited time offer.

Honestly, I do not feel like getting to 100 years old.
