    The Best ...

    I've never felt better.  I am happier, more confident and full of hope and optimism. I can't run as fast as I once could and sometimes curse the fact that my yoga postures are not as perfect as they once were ... but what the heck. They say that age is just a number...

    Wasn't Sure...

    There was a time I wasn't sure I'd live to see 30, let alone my current 34. I spent most of my 20s in and out of psych units, mostly for suicidal thoughts.  Add to that dealing with hardcore domestic violence and some seriously scary health issues...yeah.  It was a pleasant...

    May 9th....

         I turned 38. I don't feel any different. I look the same as I did in my 20's and I feel the same. I workout and try to eat right. I just take care of myself. And I believe in the Sunscreen God instead of the Sun God. :D When I started working...

    Got Asked For My I.D.

    I've come to terms with being 40. There's nothing I can do about it anyway, so why fight it? Last night, my husband and I went out to dinner. There was a wait, so we went to the bar for a drink. I order, and the bartender asks me for ID. I laugh, because I came very close to not...

    Because

    I am not in my 40's yet and I feel young and free and have all the experience that a chick in her 20's doesn't have yet.  I will feel the same way at 40, 50, 60. and 70 however.

    I'm Still Young

    I remember in the youngen days how immature and wild I was. I was always wanting attention by just being wild or getting into trouble. Now that I turned 25 I feel so much more confident and more mature. I have more energy then I thought I would have. I love being this age. I know...

    I have only ever been attracted to women of a certain age, much older than me. It's natural for me, so the age difference clearly doesn't matter in my opinion.

    Especially when it comes to younger girls and older guys! girls are generally more mature than the guys of same age, so the age difference makes it a good balance!
