DP- Age

Age

Great. Now I have to think about age. Not that I don’t already. I just turned 59 last month. I wonder often where has my life gone? What have I been doing all of this time? Will I do anything different with my remaining time? Because yes, I do think about the end of the road more often now. Not every day, or week or month; just more often. Especially when people from my era and age group are dying. Especially when I have had cancer and could’ve been gone already.

Now when I look in the mirror I see an old lady. My hair is completely gray for the first time in my life. It was always colored before. There are a lot of wrinkles and sagging that weren’t there before. I’ve been through menopause, which I’ve written about.  It was no picnic.  Menopause Is A Sadistic B*

The upside to aging is being comfortable with who you are. Not being influenced by what other people think. Realizing that you are just as important as everyone else. In other words- not always sacrificing yourself for everyone else’s needs. Truly not sweating the small stuff. Because it’s just not worth it. All of these things are liberating and makes life much easier.
