I actually enjoy being 61 years old. I feel good - am healthy and happy (most of the time) I'm comfortable with myself for the first time in years. However, there are some women I know personally, who are in and around my age, who still think there is a competition going on. That to me, is old-school and I am trying to embrace my new life as a senior citizen - I don't want to live like that anymore. Granted, I don't have to get obese, let myself go etc but I don't have to make all the fuss about how I look, like I did when I was younger.
One person keeps telling me how skinny they are - I haven't seen her in a year. I mean WHY does she feel she has to tell me that? I feel as if, I might relapse into the old-school behavior of trying to look as good. Why do women still do that? Why do I still wrestle with that? I thought by the time you hit the 60's, life would be golden.
Some of the older women I know, older than me - are beautiful. No they don't have the figure of Christie Brinkley - or look as young as Cher. They still have their wrinkles, and make the best of them. They wear clothes that fit and look nice in them. They are not trying to look younger than they are. That's how I want to be.
Looks like, it doesn't end, until it ends.
