50 is not old. it is mature. My dad is turning 50 in June. He acts like he is 20. he is doing things now that he has never done. He amazes me. You are only as old as you feel. You seem like you still have a lot of spunk!
I don't think 50 is old, but I do think it can be a wake up call to some that their life is marching on and that they need to take time to do the things that matter My wake up call came with losing my best friend to cancer at the age of 42. Just when you think you have your whole life ahead of you...
I passed 50 20 years ago. I didn't feel old then, and don't feel old now. Some people are old at 40, look it and act it. Genes has a lot to do with it and I am blessed with good genes. I still scuba dive to 100 ft., play volleyball, and can beat most pudgy 40 year olds at squash. By the way--------I would recommend a Prostate Check (PSA) starting at age 40, age 35 if you are African American.
I've just turned 46 and i'll probably upset y'all but i'm dreading the number 50, yea yea i know its not old, but i felt exactly the same at 30 and at 40.
Maybe its because i could'nt have children and so did'nt age the same as my friends, i sometimes relate more to their children than i do them!! my b/f is 10 years younger than me so maybe that has something to do with it..
