You know the saying “I am aging like a fine wine” Not me I am aging like that thing in the back of your fridge.

There is another saying that “Getting older is not for wimps”.  Well I am a wimp!

But I wouldn’t have it any other way.

My high school life was full of $#@!.  Let’s just say the last time I went by my old high school I had a panic attack.

College years were a lot better and I enjoyed them but if you asked if I could go back, I would refuse.

Life after college was full of moving from job to job and being a work- a – holic so my personal life was not what I wanted.

In other words, despite health issues and a lot of grey hair

I am happier today that I have been in all my life.

But I do feel old and now I know why!

According to a new survey of 2,000 Americans, you’re not old until you turn . . . 57.   I don’t know if I believe that because we are living longer and longer but hey I found this on the internet and you know if it is on the internet it has got to be true.   Wink wink nudge nudge

The survey also found the 10 most common things people worry about as they age are . . .

Overall health.     Wrinkles.     Weight gain. I was old at 10 years old      Gray hair…. My hair turned grey when I got really sick in 2000

Hair loss.         Not being able to take care of themselves. I worry about that and with recent surgeries it is not fun

Age spots.     Being seen as “old.”      Financial security.     Losing their independence.


Yep getting older is not for wimps but I like it.
