I don't have the anxiety about work and the sometimes toxic relationship, and politics at work. Traded that for neighbors and trying to stay away from traffic during peak times. I can get everything done at home. I can read the frivilous things. I can relax. I can concentrate on self and family. My family teases me I know all the news.

One thing I've found to be a "nice" thing about being a senior is the fact that I am slowing down physically right at the same time that I have far less and fewer reasons to move fast or with any urgency.  In essence, the pace of my life is slowing down and, for me, that's a good  thing!  

 

Happy in my shoes!

I enjoy knowing beyond a shadow of a doubt that other people's opinions about me are no measure of my worth. Therefore I enjoy wearing skin tight jeans, bright colors, long flowing gray hair, laughing out loud, smiling at strangers, and carrying on like I have not one care in the world.

 

I also greatly enjoy passing younger people on the bike trail ... especially when they try to out race me. Zoom zoom. Smiley Happy

Other than learning to live on meager retirement earnings, I just do me at all times no matter who likes it or not. I'd love to marry again so that's something I pray about. Smiley Happy
