I know when I hit 50 my body parts started to malfunction. Now as I near 60 I've adjusted to the new way of life-foods I can't eat, bathrooms I've visited that I never expected to, hair growing and not growing in odd places. But - I do have more quiet time for reading and bible study and spend much less time on hair and makeup. I like who I am and hope others do to but if not - I'm ok with that too. My mother used to tell me that I tried to hard to do everything for everybody and that I would eventually figure out that the only one I need to please is God and me. Thanks Mom, you were right.

Midlife... guess it passed me by. Even though I feel I am midlife now....in my 70s. I love my life now,
Comment by Shirley Strait on February 19, 2013 at 7:52pm

I am on the cusp of 60. Some days that feels to young to be middle are and some days that feels ancient. It makes me really glad to be past the age of wondering about babies, schooling, and friends for my children, but then I see what my grandchildren are facing and am really glad that I don't have to make the decisions for them that my son and his wife do. I just pray A LOT!!!

 

Someone once asked my grandmother if she was going into her second childhood when she was playing dolls with me. She said no, that she had never left her first one. Way to go Grandma!!!

COMFORTABLE. At 55 I am comfortable in my skin. I am not trying to fit in. I am who I am. Love me, like me, hate me, leave me. I'll still be happily me.

I do agree it is late 30's and 40's where you notice change my biggest one is HOT FLASHES!!!! Now i could do without this. LOL

Comment by Poppy Smith on February 19, 2013 at 1:20pm

I love all your comments--it's great fun when we all pitch in with our varied perspectives. In my book, I'm Too Young to be This Old, I say this about the perception of no longer being at the age and stage where we once were:

"There's no particular birthday that, when reached, uniformly plunges a woman into midlife. We're as individual as our DNA. Most of us, however, sense changes taking place anytime from our late thirties to mid-forties...The forties and fifties are a major turning point in life, taking us from the old age of youth into the youth of old-age. We can't dig in our heels and say 'I'm not crossing over' nor can we detour around this part of our journe. We can, hower, choose what attitude we will have about it." 

This is what I see reflected in all your comments and that's great!

"Mid-Life" to me is a state of mind. I don't think this term really carries alot of weight. I just think someone made up the term. I think you can be as young as you feel and if it's right for you, then it shouldn't matter.

Comment by Deanna Mundy on February 19, 2013 at 10:25am

I see mid-life as something that I will never achieve.  My motto is "forever young".  I will be 42 this week and I do not see mid-life or elderly in my terms for the future.
