Getting old sucks. It's not just the graying hair and sagging everything. It's not going almost ten months without a period and being really excited about that--only to have Mother Nature pull a fast one. It's not just stiff knees and reading glasses. It's not having what Sophia on Golden Girls called "difficulty digesting certain vegetables".
Mainly it's feeling like time is slipping away. Looking back over the past--ahem--50+ (how did THAT happen!) years and not seeing much in the way of accomplishments. As a girl, there was really only one thing I wanted to do with my life and it didn't happen--whether because of things I did or didn't do--it didn't get done. And now it's too late. Believe me, it IS too late. It's not going to happen.
So, how do I face that fact and move on? How do I not feel like a failure?
The floor is now yours, but no platitudes, please.
