    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...

    No Job No Life No Money

    I am 4-F--fifty, fat, frusterated, and financially a mess. I had a job that I loved, but my boss had some financial reverses and decided to close the office. I got a new job right away, but less than a month later I was fired because "we do things a certain way here, and I can...

    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 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...

    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 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...

    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...

    One Day At A Time

    I knew I had to, but one part of my mind said, 'Oh come on let's skip a day, let's just go straight to the bar for a cappuccino,' another part of my mind said, 'But you know you love it once you're there, you can get that cappuccino after and enjoy it all the more.' My body was...

    Decade By Decade

    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.

    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...

    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...

    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 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...

    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...
