    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...

    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'll Never Be 104!

     I was at a friends 41st birthday party and she's having a hard time with it.  I was thinking that "she can at least consider herself middle age.  I can't even say that because I'll never be 104!

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...
