I’m so glad that I’m not the only one who feels this way!!
There is no way on earth that you looked ridiculous. You had fun & I bet your grandkids adored the time with you.I was playing with the grandkids at the park on the playground equipment yesterday (swinging on the bars, running on the balance beams) and a dad asked me "how do you do it?" To me it was fun. Maybe I looked ridiculous. I don't know.
I am not willing to do things I deem unpleasant, like bridal showers-lol. I value my time and only spend it doing things that bring me joy.
For you younger folks (I am 63)--age is a number and seriously, if you don't 'feel' mentally and physically younger than your age, you are doing something wrong!
The older I get, the less I worry about what others think.
Yeah--I am a little sad that my runway is getting shorter. But it makes me try to pack as much joy, fun and happiness in each day. I am not willing to do things I deem unpleasant, like bridal showers-lol. I value my time and only spend it doing things that bring me joy.
I turned 60 last December...I always kinda of thought I didn't look to horrible for my old age...it was weird the other night I glanced at myself in a mirror and thought dang when did I get this old...and I looked old...guess its just wishful thinking to look younger..sigh maybe a slight facelift is the answer..but really it doesn't matter....today I am feeling every dang year...I have arthritis in my back and have had for years (thanks to a fall when I was a child) and it is giving me terrible fits today
I am 40 this year. It doesn't feel like I should be but here I am. There is a lot I have not done and things I thought I would have done by now. I don't really like going into the 40's if I'm honest. I guess the one nice thing is that the older you are, hopefully the closer to retirement you are?
The older I get the more I put off retirement. I have been running my own business for 41 years & at 67 years old, I should have retired at 60 but I keep soldiering onGoodness knows how old I'll be when I finally retire
I wouldn't change it, she is my heart, but I still look for an adult in the room sometimes when things call for one. The harsh realization that I am the adult in the room is a rude awakening.
Amen to bridle showers…I’m over it. Sending the gift in the mail.
I have one to go to one next month. I really don’t mind them. I know everyone hates them…but I enjoy seeing the excitement in a young person’s eyes when they’re engaged and looking forward to the future. I know I’m such a dork..
