I love my age! Midlife is a normal part of aging. Many people fear midlife. I know I did. And it was here before I even had a chance to really enjoy my life. But I’m not going to let age keep me from being happy. Midlife offers a lot of opportunity and reasons to embrace it. Here are a few of them.
Freedom: For most people, in midlife they find for the first time in many years, they have more freedom then they ever did their entire life. For me, with my kids growing up and not needing me as much, I feel free. I love my kids, but it is so nice to finally have a me time. I feel like a butterfly who has come out of a cocoon.
Self Image: I love “me” at 50. I no longer worry so much about what people think about me. I have gotten tougher over the years. I feel like I am what I am. If yo don’t like me, then it is your loss. I feel beautiful and that is whats important.
Wisdom: With age, comes wisdom. I have had lots of experiences throughout my life both good and bad. So now as an older person I get to share my experiences with others. I feel like I really can help younger people. I get to prevent them from making some of the mistakes that I have made.
I’m Alive! Many people are not lucky enough to reach midlife. I am blessed. Every day is a blessing.
New Fresh Start: Okay really each day is a fresh new start, but I feel like for me, midlife is when you really get to evaluate you life and figure out what you really want. You get to decide in what direction you want your life to do. Do you have regrets? I choose to not look at the past in a negative way. I mean without my past I wouldn’t be where I am today. And now I get to look at each moment as a fresh new start! I have been blessed.
