I'm amazed. When I was 40, I thought I'd never make 50. And at 50 I thought the frosting on the cake would be 60. At 60, I was still going strong and enjoying everything.
I have thought many times that I would never make it another ten years just like Gloria Stuart. I wondered if I would ever make it to 50 because I was having health problems but figured I would enjoy my life and live my life. Not sit there and worry about dying. I felt the same way when I turned 60.
Wow I made it to 60. It was my first thought and since I was away from friends and family that I would treat everyone to a good party so all the neighbourhood could enjoy it. I had fun and made sure everyone had fun also. I have now made it to 61. Do I feel 61-no. I am doing belly dancing and Tae Boxing and feel better than I have felt in years.
I found that the way to have a quality life is not to let other people try to make you miserable. You have to live your life and enjoy the beauty in the world. Love the people who are your friends and not care if they are not perfect. I have always felt a wonder for the things I see and having that joy in life is more important than how you live in my opinion.
Everyone is capable of making fun or being cruel to others. I want the people who love life and others.
