Next month I am 65. The birthdays happen every year but it is amazing when you reach a number that seems to define the next stage. My health is good and there are no overwhelming money worries and I have a very loving family. So the basics are covered which is really important and they are not by chance but being conscientious always. Working took up so much of my life and time that when it ended a few years ago I took on part time work to fill the hours. Now I have hit a place where I am looking at what to do for the next years. Some of the activities I thought would be a part of my life have been eliminated because of husbands physical limitations. I can and do go off by myself but it is not the same. It is surprising how little time I have ever spent thinking about what I like to do and it is hard to figure it out.
Also the NUMBER is a mental stumbling block, something I am working with right now. At least it is a beautiful sunny day and everyone is relatively healthy.
