Next month, I'll be turning 60, & unlike when I was turning 50yrs old, it's not bothering me at all, WinkI think I've become comfortable in my " own skin", & not only that I can get my seniors card, it's not the same as a pension card, but you do still get some rebates, & discounts, like off your house rates, drivers license, utilities, etc.


I've also gained a lot more confidence as I've reached the mature age, more than when I was in my 40's, I'm not so afraid to voice an opinion, frightened that it might sound silly to people, after all, how many times have I thought what others have said doesn't make sense, Laughing


When I'm in a new course, I'll just introduce myself to strangers, & start a conversation, whereas before, I'd wait for them to make the first move, my logic being, if I can talk to friends ok, well they were strangers once, os what's the difference, if I make the first move.


I think I'm going to enjoy this new decade of mine.Innocent

My mind tells me all sorts of stories
but do I have to believe everyone of them.

Welcome to the sixties.  I turned 60 last April.  I have to agree getting older only makes us better.

Life is a Gift ...


Sometimes it ISN'T quite "My Size" or it's NOT my FAVORITE Color ... But It IS a Gift ...

i think i was in 5th grade and for some reason i was doing the aritmetic of how old i was going to be at the turn of the century.  i detemined that i was going to be older than 50.  i dismissed it, cause i said to myself.  "you won't be alive by then".  for years i actually believed that i would not be alive at the turn of the century.  lo and behold i was and is actually older than that.  Praise God.  There were many times since the turn of the century when i shouldn't have made it, but God had different plans for me.  And, what a journey it has been.  aches and pains aside;  it's a wonderful life!

And they all said Amen.  It is so good to see you my friend.
