Embracing 50: age is just an illusion

I moved into my first apartment, purchased a pack of smokes and a six pack and consumed both while sitting in front of my giangantuaous platform tv watching Beverly Hills 90210 (I didn’t smoke, just like the independence). Suddenly, I was a somewhat self-respecting grownup who paid my own bills and was fast realizing that there was more to the world than going out and being social.

Back to school shopping for dummies

So, with one week left until school starts, we grab our list and head to the nearest store for our supplies. Parking is easy enough and we bravely head into the store to find out that every other person in the parking lot is also in the school supplies section.

STOP the MADNESS!

Honestly, that pisses me off. I am so irritated that I would allow my own self-perception to limit the impact I may have on others. yet, I still get frustrated with myself when I am going to meet someone and I can’t find anything that looks “just right”. I forget that five years ago I was undergoing major surgery that required extensive recovery. Or that 7 years ago I have just given birth. My body has been through changes that apparently my mind has forgotten.
