I've been noticing more and more, the fine lines (most would call wrinkles), the gray hair blending in with my natural color.
The way my walking, sitting, squatting etc. have slowed down. (Squatting, just saying that makes me laugh, lol)
I was noticing today that my neck is getting wrinkles!
Grant it, I am over 50, but to ACTUALLY see it and you know your mind isn't as old as your body is a huge reality check!
I tell myself that gray hair is wisdom and wrinkles are character. But I've decided I don't care to be so full of character and have the wisdom I have, lol
For those of you who are over 50, are you having a personal crisis over the changes you're seeing or are you truly able to accept the changes and embrace them? If you're able to embrace them, then what is your secret?

It was an adjustment for me too and depressing. I color my hair, get my nails done and try to eat healthy. I think the turning point for me is when the grandkids came along. They keep me young and lift my spirits. I think it is all in your outlook. 60 is fast approaching but I will keep enjoying life to the fullest!
