Whether you're 28 or 88, you've probably stamped yourself with a label. Look at the label that comes with your age, then replace it with the one that reflects the reality of your life. I know for sure that every birthday, you decide whether to make it the end of your greatest days or the beginning of your finest hour. Your call.
I never lose sight of the fact that just being is fun.
It is a mistake to regard age as a downhill grade toward dissolution. The reverse is true. As one grows older, one climbs with surprising strides.
This is the best time in my life -- the first eighty years are definitely the hardest.
All these years I've been taking lessons from life experiences and feeling like I was growing into myself. Finally, I feel grown, more like myself than I've ever been. If it's true what Maya Angelou says--that the fifties represent everything you were meant to be--all I can say is WATCH OUT!
