Happy to Be Older?

Wisdom

I’ve had a lot of people tell me that they’re happy to be older. This has never sat right with me. Happy to be older? Whaaat? I know there’s the getting wiser thing. But then there’s that loss of memory thing. So what good is it being wiser if you can’t remember your wisdom?

Age

I’ve mentioned this a lot of times. There’s that famous phrase: age is just a number. Again. Whaaat? I feel like I’m 70 and I’m only in the upper 50’s. Enough said.

Ancient

“He/she looks good for her age” is a proclamation that makes me roll my eyes. It makes me think that the rest of us look ancient. Thanks.

New

What have we learned here? Aging sucks. Though, getting close to the “60” numeral I am comforted by the saying “60 is the new 50.” Kidding.

50 is Not Just a Number

It’s Just a Number, Right?

If you are over 50 chances are you’ve heard the phrase “Age is just a number.” Meaning I suppose that just because you are over 50 you do not have to think like you are.

Think Young?

So what  do you do to think young? Yoga? Eat healthy? Date someone who’s 30?

Setting the Record Straight

Well folks, I’m here to set the record straight. If you are over 50, you ARE over 50. Not sure. Listen to your body. Hard to keep the weight off now? Over 50. Memory loss starting? Over 50. Aches and pains? Over 50. Being looked at differently? Over 50. Trying to convince yourself that age is just a number? Over 50.
