I promised to display the other side of the coin when I said that it sucks getting older.

Here goes:

(In random order.)

10. Vanity. Oh, who cares? Comfort RULES!

9. Wisdom. I am so much wiser. Although sometimes you wouldn’t know it.

8. Autonomy. I can do what I want. Chocolate ice cream for dinner? I could.

7. Marriage. I married well. Bless him. Poor guy.

6. Money. To spend as one pleases. If one had any.

5. Life experience. There’s very little left to learn the hard way.

4. Impressing! With age, I’ve noticed that I am far less intimidated by other people’s success. Good for them! Me, I don’t try to hold my stomach in, no matter who walks into the room. Too much effort.

3. Overbearing.  I am more overbearing towards others but mainly towards myself. I am closer than ever to accepting myself as I – simply – am. It feels wonderful. Whiskers and all.

2. Submission. If it is out of my control, I let it go.

1. Children. There is so much love there. They’re so much fun. When not I-N-C-R-E-D-I-B-L-Y annoying…

(If you are considering having children, you may want to read this: Should I Have A Child?)

And hey! 100 is the new 90, 90 is the new 80, 80 is the new 70, 70 is the new 60, 60 is the new 50, 50 is the new 40, 40 is the new 30, 30 is the new 20 and 20…


That’s just 20.


AND… With age, you think that old farts are hot! (Well, some.)
