I don’t care who you are, I would bet that as you get older than the ½ century marker that you begin thinking more of aging and what it means for you. The funny thing is that you can do everything that you did in your thirties and forties. You probably even feel the same as you did then. You just know deep within yourself that you are no longer those ages. We can say that age doesn’t matter, that it’s only a number, but deep within our beings, we know differently. We realize that we have more memories behind us than we have to look forward to. I stole that line from Bill Clinton…
I wonder about some of your signs of aging. Mine is graying hair (which is colored on my head). But the problem is the hair is graying even on my pubic area; and for men, I understand the hair on their chest begins to gray along with the pubic hair. Well as a woman, I keep my pubic hair shaved. Then no one knows what color is supposed to be there… J
I have many tips and tricks for continued youthful looks. Most people think I am about 20 years younger than my actual age. Why wouldn’t I want to keep that up as long as I can?
What about relationships? My being is still very hot for men, it has not changed in the least little bit. My sex drive is off the charts. Twentysomethings think it is gross for aging people to have sex, but I’m willing to bet that our sex is a lot hotter than theirs… I believe we really have the sex we want, finally.
I know that all research indicates that we all need companionship and friends as we age, but I really have very little time in my life for making new friends. So I tend to make friends at the Gym or conferences that I’m required to go to, or whenever I can. But the thing about friends your age many times is they are actually living the age they are. They don’t care to do anything exciting, they let themselves go and feel inferior to you for looking more youthful. I am not ready for that!
I follow a couple of blogs where women can’t even admit that they are premenopausal. Yet, denial will not stop the aging process. When your period begins going from every twenty-eight days to every 40 or 70, you are probably premenopausal if you are in your late 40s and beyond. They can deny all they want, but premenopausal begins when women are in their late 40s to 50s. Like death ladies, you can’t hide from it. Besides, look on the bright side, you don’t have to worry about getting pregnant once you’ve made it through that cycle of your life.
So, yes you know in your heart and mind what age you are, but it doesn’t mean you are required to own up to it…
