You hear a lot of people in their 30's and 40's complain about getting old. But you don't hear it so much in people who are 50+. They've learned more about enjoying life, and learned to stop complaining. Really, no one is listening anyway.
Ronnie Sellers, author of Fifty Things to Do When You Turn Fifty says:
"That was okay in your 30s and 40s, but now that you're old, it's time to shut up on the subject"
The book is story and excerpts from experts and celebrities from all walks of life on the subject of turning 50. One review said:
"A friend gave me this for a birthday present and I took it along as an easy read while flying cross country. It was a light, easy read with short 3-5 page chapters written by well-known individuals..."
Anyone who has experience can tell you it isn't such a bad thing. I recall having older people tell me 20-30 years ago, that your mindset at 50+ is pretty well the same as it was when you were in your middle 20s or even 30s. The vessel grows older, but your mind stays locked in the same place. I know that sounds a little hard to believe.... but when you stop to think about it you will see that it's true.
Another reviewer said:
"I read this book in almost one sitting. I found the advice helpful, as well as entertaining. I have three friends turning 50 in March and bought a copy for each of them. I'm trying to make my year of turning 50 pivotal. This book helped me wrap my brain around saying "I'm Fifty."
But there are a lot of things at 50 you don't appreciate as much as you once did, even though you still have the 35-30 mindset any longer. And some of this is based on slowing down....
1. You don't care for fast food as much
2. You don't care for fast women as much
3. You don't care for "get rich quick" info as much
4. You don't care for young people's fast and loose tongues as much
5. You don't care for quick fixes
6. And you don't care for "Minute Rice"
