I am female. I am in my fifties. Scary to say.  I live in upstate New York. My two sons are grown and off on their own.  I work 28 hours a week. When I am not working I enjoy reading, walking with my dog, yoga, gardening tennis, pickle ball  and writing. I have been on writing sites before. In fact I have been on this one for some time but never really used it. I saw on twitter there was a challenge so I thought what the heck. I am enjoying writing and reading other peoples blogs. It has added to my life right now.

  1. Well, my dear, I just turned seventy. “…in my fifties…” sounds okay to me. Not scary at all! Welcome to the wild wonderful world of WordPress. Glad you took the challenge.

      well, I guess it is all relative. moving into my fifties was originally upsetting to me but once
      i crossed that threshold I got over that. I am getting better about being older. Letting go of needing to look and
      be a certain way. I respect older woman now. Thank you so much for your comments.

  2. I turned 65 last year and found that now is the time to put old age and treachery to good use. It only gets better.

      that is pretty funny. I think I know where you are coming from. I vacillate right now from hating getting older
      to relaxing into it. I am probably generalizing but I think it can be more difficult for women being usually, the vainer of
      the species. I don’t mind being old so much, I just don’t want to look it. Thanks for you comments!

  3. Fifties? I am going past you. This is my last year being 50 something. But sixty? Now that sounds scary. But I’m grateful that I am still enjoying the life God has afforded me. Happy blogging!

    56 in August. What I really like about getting older is not caring that much anymore what others think of me. The weight of having to be attractive and young has lifted. It is the inner process of letting go of that younger self that I find quite liberating. At home and comfortable in my own skin at last.

      I will be 57 at the end of the month. I was frantic at 47 but this time around I don’t care really. As you say. It is kind of a relief not to be obsessed with that kind of thing.

  5. I wish people didn’t get old. I hope that I will die before I get too old and feeble, so that people don’t remember me as old and wrinkled. Bot then My grandma and my ma are in their 70’s and 80’s and they are very healthy.. so it must not be that bad 🙂

      I am starting to get old. You are probably pretty young if your grandparents are that age. Your perspective starts to change. I don’t want to be feeble that is for sure. So you are right. Not so bad if you stay relatively healthy and spry. That is my aim!

      • I am reaching my mid 40’s… not so far away…. I cant believe that I am so old.. I used to help out an old guy named Don, who was in his mid 80’s. He used to tell me that his body is old but his mind was like a teenagers. Not so hard to believe. You think would have kicked some habits when you reach a certain age, only to find out that nothing has really changed. you are still you, only time has passed. Well, thanks for responding

        I still feel the same even though I am getting older. You are not old but I can understand you feeling that way. I felt that way too, even when I was in my late twenties. Now I guessI have come to terms with it better. I am 57!
