Shock and Awe is one way to put it! I’m not gonna lie, it’s hard for me to process that I am actually 60 years old. Maybe because I'm the youngest in my entire extended family, or maybe because my parents both died young, I never really pictured what it might feel like to be 60!
I remember when I was in my thirties having a conversation with a friend of mine who was in her sixties at the time. (Of course I thought she was old ha!) She said to me, "Oh, being in your sixties is a wonderful stage of life! You can look forward to it!" She lived to be in her nineties and though that conversation seems like just a few years ago, I am counting on her words being true!
At some point, we do stop wishing to be older. I am sure that magic number is different for everyone. I don’t remember the exact age, but I remember the EXACT MOMENT when I stopped wanting to be older.
Well, you know the saying, “I wish I was as old as I was when I first thought I was old”! Never a truer saying, so that is why I am heeding my mother in law’s advice and reminding myself on this milestone birthday...
“BUT YOU'RE STILL SO YOUNG!”
Welcome to my Blog! I would love to hear from you!
