50 is the new 40

Now they’re saying that 50 is the new 40.

Madonna is 52.

Michelle Pheiffer is 53.

Amy Grant is 50.

It’s hard to believe but Christie Brinkley is 57.

These women are all so beautiful and none of them have had any disastrous plastic surgery. Was/Is there an age that bothered you turning more than others? Do you worry about your age or obsess over aging? Would you take drastic measures to stay young looking?

    Believe it or not, I hated turning 20. I was alone with a baby and scared and thought WTH!! Now I never think about it. The only think I’d consider doing are getting rid of the spider veins on my cheeks. I’d love to get rid of them. I’ve had the start of them since I had Toby and they really bother me.

    I wasn’t too happy to turn 30. I had it in my mind that I should have accomplished a bunch of stuff by that age. Instead, I was on a stressful roller-coaster job-wise, in a frustrating long-distance relationship, deep in debt, etc. Basically I felt like a failure.

    40 wasn’t bad at all. Nowadays people expect me to be embarrassed or something about my age, but I’m not. I am 44, I look 44, and most of the time, I feel 44. And I don’t see anything wrong with that. I have a few creases (laugh lines) and creaks and white hairs, but I have no thoughts of changing that. One thing I dislike is the growing number of moles. Maybe some day I will do something about some of them.

    Oh, the arthritis is not super fun. I might need a hip or knee replacement someday, or who knows what else. For now, I can still do the things most people do.

    I’m a little wigged out that I’m already 41. I look back and feel like I haven’t accomplished much – that’s in my depressive states. But other days, I look at my life and think, wow, I never, in a gazillion years, expected to be here. And it’s the dead-on truth. Just not sure if that’s a good thing or not!!

    My biggest problem is that it seems like time just speeds by, except when you don’t want it to.

    More than worrying about ageing we should try to keep fit . This is more rewarding than fighting ageing with artificial methods. At some stage we will be forced to give up this fight .

    I’m almost 31, and have passed for my early 20’s. That’s nice! I hope that continues. I think eating right is the best thing you can do for you body, and of course exercising (which I’ve seriously been slacking on.) I loved being 24. When I hit that 25 mark, my oldest sister said something to me that just made me cry! “Well, now ya know you are a quarter of a century old, and 30 comes really fast!” I completely freaked out.

    When it came my turn to turn 30, I embraced it and I have to say, so far, 30’s are the best! For the first time in my life, I feel 100% content with my life.

    I think it’s between having good genes, and keeping yourself healthy (body & mind) you’ll have a good shot at looking great!

    I just cant get over how Cristy Brinkley looks at 57!Wow!They all look so good.
    Well,I turn 40 this year.Not sure how I feel about it yet,ask me then!No bday has bothered me so far,just hard to believe how time goes so fast is all.

  8. Sue says:

    All those women look good because they can afford people to tell them to get off their butts every day! I have crows feet already and have thought many times about getting something for them and just never do so I don’t think I’d go to drastic measures.

    50 is the new 40? Does that mean that since I’m turning 60 it’s now the new 50? I can deal with that! Actually I’ve never been bothered when any birthday rolled around, and I’m still not. When I was much, much younger I was really convinced that I wouldn’t live past 30. I don’t know why, so don’t bother to ask. Actually what died was my old life, but I’m perfectly content with the new one I’ve been living and as long as I’m relatively happy, healthy (spiritually, mentally, emotionally and physically), and continue to regain mobility, I’m still happy to be where I am. Age really is just a number, so is weight by the way, and what really matters is how a person feels. Do I have laugh lines, hell yeah, I spend a lot of time laughing. Are there creases at my eyes, sure there are. Do I care? NOPE not on whit! Nor will I spend a small fortune on “beauty aids” to fight the aging process. I’ve made peace with who and what I am. 🙂

    Course I’ve heard that wisdom comes with age……..I’M STILL W-A-I-T-I-N-G!! 😀
