Wisdom, Great Sex, and More Reasons to Love Aging

When we asked our Facebook followers about their favorite part of growing older, a lot of women wrote “nothing.” Here are the answers that weren’t that. You know our philosophy: Embrace your age!

At 44, I finally stopped caring about people-pleasing and learned to trust myself. I’m happier now than I’ve ever been. — Hillary Adams

Perspective: I have learned not to sweat the small stuff. — Wendy L. Cohan

At 54, I have recently lost just over half my body weight. I was morbidly obese for many years and can wear nice clothes for the first time in my adult life. I feel energetic and strong — and totally unapologetic. I feel like shouting. “This is me! Here I am! Get used to it!” — June Seghni

Growing older has been glorious. With age comes experience and confidence. You know who you are and no longer care what others think of you. — Sandra DeSpirt

I am not afraid to express myself through my own unique style. — Kristen Ellery

I have a better understanding of how human beings are. — Dora Szakmary-Lacey

I will be 66 soon. I have acquired wisdom from the University of Life, which I gladly share with others. I come and go as I please. I love to spend time with my kids, grandkids, and husband of almost 44 years. Love to do hot yoga and spinning. I am loving my crystals, candles, traveling to my native Colombia. I learned that I shouldn’t feel guilty to practice self-love and self-care, because you can’t give from an empty vessel. — Aixa Wilson

I feel like myself. Truly and for first time comfortable and proud. If I could share this back 20 years or 10 years, so much I could have left by the wayside. I’m happy being me. — Allison Kephart Drapeau

Invisibility (my new superpower). Nobody sees me anymore! — Dani Nelson

At 50.5, self-appreciation and the ability to love and appreciate senior parents. — Anna Lee Hurd

I am living my authentic self without pretense. — Carrie L. Millen

Getting some of my Social Security money back! — Helen Graham

I love realizing I can still chase dreams and learn and do new things. — Anna Monaco

Retirement! Doing what I want to do, when I want to do it. — Tracy Thomas Mendenhall

At 45, I feel like I am just coming into the prime of my life. I am comfortable with myself and am able to live in the moment more than ever before. The time is now. — Ellen Michelle

Being a grandma! — Cathy Bartels

My silver hair! I just love it! — Debbie Lowry

Sex is better. — Enid Palmer

I am 52 and finally at peace with who I am. I love my ever-growing family of grandchildren and watching my adult children live their best lives. I also have a teenager still at home keeping me young at heart! — Lynnette Eastham Hostetter
