Today Sharing:

@60 Part: #1 – Taking a leap of faith off the bridge

This year I stood on a platform and jumped off a bridge in New Zealand on April 20, and I thought that the craziest thing I would ever do in my life. People have jumped say, “don’t worry you will be fine”, but they don’t understand the emotions running through my head. When I did that bungee jump, I had no idea what to expect and I jumped with my eyes closed until my head hit the water and I (F)Forgot to (S)Scream…(Y)Yes! I am alive!

Turning 60 is much younger age than I used to think. My son tells me that I say this only because I am approaching my 60 in a couple of Fridays  – Friday, December 02 exact. 

I know it because when I look into the mirror this morning I don’t see an old man looking back at me. I see myself, yes, with lesser hair and a few wrinkles, but I am still basically the same me that I’ve always known and loved.

I am pretty in good shape and my medical report shows I am in the pink of health, thank Buddha for the gift of walking, which I enhanced by walking uphill and downhill, even a few mountains. I walk the paths less traveled by. Yes, @60, I do have a few lapses in memory once in a while, but I still manage to drive to Gunung Lambak at Kluang, Johor on the weekends and find my way home safely.

I almost can’t wait to turn 60 because so many good things seem to happen to me when I have shared, given, and cared more in my younger days. There is saying that when you give more, more good things will return. It’s a karma.

Let’s be honest, we all know things have changed. When I was younger, people who are 60 had a harder time than me. In my time, I treated them with respect and courtesy when it is due. I gave them my seats on the old crowded buses. I kept a close eye on them at intersections to make sure they didn’t need help in crossing the street. Today our younger kids sit and slept on the reserved seat in MRT. They zoom and sway across intersections with their e-bikes. Today the younger generation disregarded almost everything the 60 year-olds have said. They think we are in the 60, after all, too old to be worth listening. They are the children of new age, much too younique with a smartphone in their hand most of the time. They were the ones whose mission is to change the world. We were the ones who had screwed up the world. 

 

So, If you are one of the many (F)Funny, (S)Stubborn & (Y)Young people who will turn 60 every day. Wake up early on Friday morning, Get a cup of coffee, pull up a comfortable chair, relax & settle in. In the next couple of Fridays, I will be sharing a few stories regards to @60. But if you are not 60 yet, you will still enjoy my stories and maybe get a few gems out of it.

 And these are my reflections @60

My childhood was difficult and exhausting in many other ways. My first TV comes without remote control and if you wanted to change the channel, you have to actually get up and walk over to the TV.

Interestingly, I survived my childhood.  When I started to work at the age of 14 in the factory we never wore safety glasses, hard hats or safety shoes. We engaged in all sorts of unsupervised work activities and had never heard about risk assessment. We developed immunity to childhood disease or injuries the old-fashioned way — by catching them.

We didn’t have seat-belt in the car. Today, when you are in my car, the first thing I insist you wear seat-belt.

To be continued
