Fifty is Nifty

10 reasons to love your 50s:

1. You find yourself. “The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in service to others.” – Mahatma Gandhi

2. Botox is an option. “Wrinkles (should) merely indicate where smiles have been”- Mark Twain

3. You still have time for a career re-do. #encorecareer

4. You and your partner find love in all the right places.

5. Laughter and tears flow more freely in times of celebration and sadness.

6. You learn that it is better to be kind than right.

7. You do more with less (fill in the blank: space, clothes, makeup, tchotchkes, cooking…)

8. You can just.say.no.

9. Bedtime is at 9:00pm or midnight or anytime you choose.

10. You can road test the idea of becoming just a little bit eccentric – a preview of coming attractions.
