Holy crap..I'm 50!

Yesterday, I hit the half century mark. 

50 seems like such a scary number to me.

I think it actually hit the immature side of my brain yesterday that I am NOT going to live forever. The rational side has always known the truth but the side I like better is having a huge problem with this.

I now know how fast time really flies, what I did thirty years ago seems like yesterday. I think I'm scared going forward is going to go faster.

I keep thinking what if I only have 15 years left, 20? Will I have enough time to do a few things I want to do?

I'm so afraid I am running out of tomorrows.

Thank you and you are correct, age is a number, something I'm running short of. :p

 You've been running out of them, since the day you were born.  LOL

It's true, each day might be your last but you can't worry about that every day.

First...Happy Birthday!   I just turned 60.  My husband has a great attitude about birthdays saying "it's better than the alternative" but I really am having a hard time with turning 60.

Yay, Happy Birthday! You're a half century old! I never would've guessed you are 15 years older than me. :)

Seriously though. I feel like I'm running out of time quickly too, and I have no idea why. *hugs*

Im only 37 almost 38 but I obsess about this all the time. Why is it we live just to die? I'm not ok with it at all. I don't want to leave earth ever. How do you deal with these thoughts?
