Half A Century
Today I turned 50. To some that sounds old to some that sounds young. Some days I feel old, some days I feel young. Turning 50 is a bit freeing. You have heard people say they know who they are at 50. I know who I am at 50 but I knew who I was at 30 as well. But at 50 I know how I want to spend my time and whom I want to spend my time with.
At 50 I realize I can't change anyone...only how I respond to them.
At 50 I have decided to spend my time with people who are kind and positive. People that make me feel good....because I've spent too much time with people that don't.
People that make me laugh...because I like to laugh.
At 50 I am going to take better care of myself so I can be middle aged at 50.
Because 50 is the new 40...
or so my mom tells me.
