    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...

    Decade By Decade

    Two days ago I celebrated the completion of 50 years of life with two great friends, and we celebrated it on the opposite side of the world from which I was born. I may not feel the fifty years emotionally or psychologically, but man oh man, my body sure notices. Two nights in...

    Observations On Turning 50 - Wolfgang Riebe

    Comes a wee bit late for me but I found these interesting: ✔ Going out is good, coming home is always better! ✔ You may forget names, but it's okay because other people forgot they even knew you! ✔ Our confidence grows - we've been around the block...

    Change

    I have decided to make a few changes in my life. I have gained too much weight over the last year or two. I am not devastated or anything. But I know that the older you get the harder it is to lose it. That's what I've heard. Anyway that is a goal of mine for the rest of this...

    Almost 50

    In 6 weeks I will be 50, which on one level doesn't make a big difference to me, but on a larger level makes me extremely self-conscious. It seems like everything I've ever started, I've never been able to complete. I've had two major jobs that started out full-time and I...

    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 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.

    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...

    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...

    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...

    Turned 50 In January

    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...
