Turning 50!

Today is my birthday.

I’m 50 years old.


There it is.

It actually looks worse in black and white than it feels.

It’s not so bad turning fifty.
After all, fifty is the new thirty, isn’t it?

Today’s “older” women are different from the “older” women I knew as a child. Back then, women in their fifties dressed in polyester, wore rollers in their hair (wrapped in a colorful scarf) while they went to the grocery store, and showed up at potlucks with red jello.

Among other differences, today’s “older” women dress in leather jackets, wear chic haircuts, and cook gourmet.

Things I’ve learned with age…

You can disagree with your friends.
They’ll still love you.

Time with family and friends is more important than anything else.

You need to be true to yourself, no matter what other people think.

It’s okay not to clean the house from top to bottom “every” week.

You don’t need to be embarrassed about liking Gummie Bears.

It’s never too late to discover your gifts and talents.

There will always be new things to learn and experience.

Age is relative to your state of mind.

Here’s to being young at heart,
