When I hit forty or so I noticed that when I screwed up and hurt myself that I didn't bounce back as quick as I used to. You're not far from there. Then at about 48 or so I discovered that I needed glasses.
I'll stop there, I don't wanna spoil all the fun that awaits you. I'll just say, it get's way funner.
Actually, I already understand the wisdom in your words.
A few years ago I decided to purchase a new dirt bike to ride once again.
Well, after the second wreck, which found me rolling in the pasture with the bike following me and ultimately landing on top of me.....I quickly realized that the ground was a lot harder than it used to be 10 years ago.
Long story short: I rolled, not rode, but rolled the bike into the shed and sold it a few weeks later....bent handlebars and all.....for a fraction of what I paid for it.
Yessir, I am nowhere near as invincible as I used to be...lol.
