I'm really old!

Like Tree84Likes

I learned to ride a horse at 50 when we bought a small ranch. I can now ride at a fast cantor at 67 and do so frequently. I also exercise with squats, sit-ups and push-ups, my goal is to be able to walk unaided if I live as long as my parents, 90/93.
I thought I had posted in this thread the first time it was around. I was 62 in Nov. I certainly remember when I thought that was OLD. Now, it's late middle age, LOL!

Awesome look!!! And you look ten years younger.
You can see my wavy tutorials here: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?lis...ZNxhBHSXAW40OQ and my wavy blog is The Wavy Nation http://wavynation.wordpress.com
I am about in the middle of the ages posted however I don't deal in numbers, [although I wouldn't be with a younger man-I think being considered a "cougar" is degrading].

Also, there is something extremely "sexy" about being with a man who is already "developed" rather than being with someone who is still in the process...he doesn't even know who he will become...ah, well...LOL!

I think a person is truly "as old as they think and feel". If you hinder your abilities by continually telling yourself what you shouldn't, couldn't, and can't do due to your age...then you ARE old and getting older by the minute.

I am not old, I am sensuous, wise and loving it...my children are grown, I am done with all the foolish, childish mistakes, [and people], and I am finally financially and emotionally FREE!

I can be ME, and start a new chapter in my life...if it turns out to be the last chapter...then it will be the best of ME!!! Time to try new things, go new places, and see new people...DISCOVERY and ADVENTURE!

It sure won't be spent sitting on the couch watching TV and telling people how old I am.

The choice is yours...FINALLY live your dream!!!

@CurlyinParadise: I'm right up just behind you - I'll be 67 in June LOL! About still being into makeup, etc. at our age and up, I don't know, about it being exclusive to our generation. There are 80 and 90 year-olds who are rocking it. Not huge numbers, but still. Check out the British documentary film Fabulous Fashionistas for example, and a blog called Advanced Style, mostly older ladies than us for sure. But I think there is one thing that might be exclusive to ours to some extent, we're not our mothers when it comes to beliefs about aging and what we can do. Because of this, we're also a bloc of people who are going to raise you-know-what about the treatment of elderly people as we advance into that stage of life ourselves, however it plays out for us. Doing the best I can by placing a healthy lifestyle first and foremost, myself!

We see nothing on television or in media that honors and celebrates us...everything is generic, and medical...smh! So I can understand how some would feel "old"...personally I change the :channel".

I am what I SAY!

These are the best years of my life...
