Old Soul

Yesterday, I went to a continuing education seminar for my industry. I always love attending because: A) I get 6 credit hours, B) I get to see old co-workers, and C) they have a holiday party afterwards. :)

Anywho, I sat at a table with two of my old co-workers. I was talking to one, I don't even remember what we were talking about, but she asked me if we were the same age. She's about 41, I think. I told her no, that I'd be 37 in January. She said, "you have an old soul."

She is not the first to tell me that. And I don't take offense to it at all. I think because my brothers and sisters are so much older than me, I've always been that way. About 10 years ago I had a different co-worker (who worked with us as well) tel lme that I was the "oldest 26 year old she ever met." LOL!

Sometimes I do feel like I was born about 7 years past my time...LOL. I like old school music, old school tv shows....you name it. I mean, don't get me wrong - I DO appreciate things from today, especially the technology. LDR teases me all the time about my gadets (iPHone, iPad, etc). But to me, it just seemed like my siblings just had an easier, much more simple time when they were growing up. The ones that are married got married pretty young, and they didn't seem to face all the dating shenanigans and things that I've faced over the past few years.

Do you ever feel like you belong in another era?

I'm an 80s baby (1981!!!) but I believe I was meant to be around in the 70s. I love EVERYTHING about the 70s. The fashion, the music, the tv shows etc.

YEA, I've been called an old soul also, and now that I'm old, i sometimes feel ancient.

i think its a good quality.

I kid you not this was my thought just yesterday. I was an only child for 12 yrs before my little sister was born so it was just me and the adults. I have little patience for the foolishness your younger folks. LOL.
