    Old, To Late To Change

    I found the following joke so true, I want to share it with EP I confied to my husband on the eve of our 50th anniversary, that I was having an affair. He turned to me and asked...... Are you having it catered? An that, my friends, is the definition of "old"

    I'm not old yet, but sometimes I do feel out of

    touch with younger people. I used to be at the cutting edge of whats considered cool, but recently I've noticed that I don't know many of the things that are considered cool these days. I don't watch TV, so I'm lost when people talk about Game of Thrones or Breaking Bad, I...

    I don't understand the fear most people have of

    aging.... It's just nature running its natural course. If you're 79, I guess that's rational since you're near your life expectancy but I get annoyed when girls around my age complain about their age. Wtf? We're in our early 20's. My teenaged years were crap and I am thankful...

    Becoming The Elders

    You know you're all grown up when, after Easter dinner, a joint gets lit and passed around the room. No kids. No parents. No safety net.

    Bring It On

    I am by no means old but I'm not worried about aging at all. Older people tend to have more wisdom so I'm all for it.

    Aging

    Aging just like death, it cannot be escaped and we will go through it even if we don't like the process and results of it.  I guess, we have to deal with it.

    Some people will go to extreme lengths to not

    appear their age. Joan Rivers is a prime example since she has been thrust into the limelight recently by doing nothing more than passing away. I had several friends who have died in recent time and the only mention of them was in the obituary column in the local paper...

    Live Through Your Spirit

    I Have Earned It

    I have earned every single fine line and gray hair!   When I think of all I've been through, it amazes me that I don't look twice my age!  Alas, just a few gray hairs and a couple fine lines on my face.  Actually, my hair is naturally very light blonde, and the little gray...

    Youth Cannot Know

    It's just something that happens in life you

    know? People age every day and I'm okay with that. Someday I will age and I do not really care. I do not care about my appearance. What I do care is the way people look at me. Like my personality and not the way I look like in the mirror. Aging is normal. It really is.

    summer. She would have wanted to dye my hair to make them disappear, and she rolled her eyes, when I told her I actually liked the idea of getting gray hair. I have also been getting more and more wrinkles, I think I look older than people at my age in general. I don't mind - I...
