I've gotten more self confident and outspoken as I've aged. I'm going to be the old lady that says EXACTLY what's on her mind and damn the torpedos. And everyone will just say: "it's ok, she's old"
I have learned to value people and relationships more and material things less.
We have simplified our life and it's SO much easier and less stress. But every so often, the need to kick up my heels is too much to resist. I just pay dearly for it the next day. But, oh is it fun on occasion.
I have reached the point where I can forecast the weather with my knees. It's that kind of stuff that I don't like about getting older. The rest really isn't all that bad.
