I used to think that I was born about 30-40 years too late, that I belonged in the houswifey 50's...on the other hand now I am embracing all the technology, but it leaves me befuddled...so much to remember and overload....I love my age, but I also find that I want to sport tatoos and have spikey hair! Why didn't feel this way when I was in my 20's and 30's?. Back then I was soooooo conservative, would never think of speaking up or expressing myself either vocally or by say, a tatoo, or coloring my hair weird colors...Now I want to do those things and , again, I feel ridiculous because of my age. I wonder if many my age feel this way?? Didn't do the things we wanted in our young years , out of fear, or whatever, and want to do it now, but feel we are too old??? For instance, I never protested the Vietnam war, although I did feel that it was wrong....now, given the chance, I would join a protest, especially the way , I feel, our country is headed at this point. Sometimes I wish I were young again, but know what I know now, on the other hand I am happy at the age I am, but something is just lacking. HOw I look on the outside, is not how I feel on the inside...I still feel like a teenager sometimes, and then I look in the mirror and see this old woman looking back at me! Well, maybe not old, but certainly older than I feel. Oh well, just need to work on it I guess.
On a light note...I ran a terrific half marathon on Sunday! 2nd in my Age group and had a faster time than I have for the past 2 years! I can still Run!!!!!!
