61 and counting…

I turned 61 on Monday and am amazed at how fast I got here.  At one time I considered  60 old, but these days I look at the 60’s with a different perspective.  By my doctor’s account I am healthy, my knees can still withstand a good run, I am at an average weight, in a good marriage and I love the life I live. Do I still have some of the same insecurities and emotional ups and downs that I had at 20?  You bet, but I have become kinder and gentler with myself.  There are some things that just aren’t going to change and these are the things that make me, well, me.

While I would like to say I feel like I did when I was 40, that just isn’t true.  To be honest, I don’t remember how it feels to be 40.  I do know that 61 feels pretty darn good and I am counting on 62 to feel the same.  I still have a number of  things to do on my bucket list and many of them demand a healthy, active me.  So here’s to another year of the good life, bring on the 60’s!
