Thoughts on turning 50

  1. Huh, really? I feel like I'm maybe... 35?
  2. 50 is just a number.
  3. I would never want to go back to a younger age though.
  4. I love my life now.
  5. I'm closer to never having to work again.
  6. I'll be able to travel that much sooner.
  7. I have learned to learn from my mistakes.
  8. I have learned that I still have things to learn.
  9. Life is too short & precious to waste time worrying about things we have no control over.
  10. I turn my back on drama for the same reason.
  11. I can't possibly know & understand your life experiences, but I have learned acceptance and recognition of that goes a long way.
  12. Dad always said "you're only as old as you feel" and he was right.
  13. The truth is that some arbitrary number just doesn't define me. I won't let it.
  14. So at 50, it seems I'm only capable of stringing together a bunch of clichés. LOL
