    As I See It

    Like it or not, I am getting old. I will be at my 50 in couple years. There are bad things, and there are good things as I get closer. I made three simple rules to follow. One, I don't always know. As I get older, I trust my judgement too much too often. Everything gets...

    This is nothing like what I was told to expect.

    Every day is easy, even the bad days. I never hold back anymore, but I never have the need put much forward. . I get more out of the books I read and I can hear what's going on in classical music and jazz. My mind is calm, but I laugh all the time, the way I did was 15. Money is...

    I Just Joined the "Club"

    No big deal, really.  I don't feel half a century old so I guess that is good!  My Husband is 9 years younger than I am and many of my friends (but not all) are also younger.

    Lost And Miserable At 54 And In Need Of A Gps

    I am fifty four years old and miserable. I have been married too many times, I have too many people that want to be called friend as they try to monopolize my life. My health is failing, I am a financial wreck, I own nothing of my own, and share my time with a man with whom I...

    Hitting 50

    I'll be 50 in a few months. I don't think I care. I didn't care about turning 18, 21, 30, or 40. So I don't think I'll care about turning 50. I don't think of myself as old, but I bet young people all think I'm an old guy when they see me. That's how I was when I was young. "Man...

    I really don't mind turning 50 soon.

    ..it sure beats the alternative. I am not a fan of the destination...so the journey rules. I do not feel any older than I did at 16 other than the aches and pains but they are my metals for making it through. Inside me is the girl I use to be, sometimes she is a little lost...

    I'm A 20 Yr Old In A 53 Yr Old Body

    I won't get into a long life story but I always believed that by the time I was 50 I would have already been married, had a couple kids, and be secure enough with a job. It ends up that I am alone, stuck living in a cute apartment but it's surrounded by party people who drink to...

    I Never Thought I'd Live This Long

    Back in the late 60s - early 70s I was living life pretty fast and figured I'd probably die before I got this old. Ah to be young and naive. I recall coming home after an Aerosmith concert where I did about ten 'crossroads' and my heart was pounding so hard it felt like I...

    This is the only age that has really bothered  me. Maybe it's because I feel so much older. Maybe it's because I have a past, present, and future that don't look good. I'm struggling from day to day and if this is the best it gets, then it's really about as far as I...

    How I Cope With Getting Older

    Last year I realised I wasn't getting any younger. A few pounds had crept on and I was started to not like the way I looked. I knew I had to do something. I'm not yet 50 but will be soon and decided that when I get there I want to be fit. So I started going to the pool. It wasn...
