What comes to mind at the mention of the age.............60?
Relief! Relief that my years in the paid workforce were over and I could now 'retire' and actually do the unpaid, voluntary work I really wanted to do - and have done - for the past twenty (Yes, 20) years, since turning sixty.
The most really productive years, I believe, of my life.
Can never see myself retiring from teaching. Too much passion in the work! Like the pay! More energy and drive than at 40!
I be thinking two more years before I retire. Unless if I decide to retire earlier
Wisdom, Confidence, Party, and "Bucket list" adventures.
The surreal quality of being 60. I really can't believe that I am in my 60s....WOW. I look back at my childhood, adolescence, & young adulthood, not believing that I am NOW 62. My parents are now deceased which makes me a 62 year old orphan. Oh, how I MISS them so.
I am looking forward to my remaining 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s, & perhaps 100. I see 60 as a number. I am forever curious & will constantly try & do new things. I aim to become even more creative that I have reached my 60s.
To be honest, "the end is near." "Over the course of my life I have experienced things that I never thought I would do; met people that I have admired; helped to make our only daughter (the Highlight of my life except making Jesus The Lord of my life); wrote community theater plays; appeared in community theater plays and gave monies to charities; got married; retired from a weekly newspaper and that pretty much sums it up.
So beautiful, what a beautiful statement...
Surely you mean, "the transition is near.." not "the end." You are the light in the eye, not the eye. When the light leaves the eye the LIFE which you are can no longer sustain itself in that particular body. There is no end.
I don't think much about it, and I think that is mainly because I grew up with older cousins. My sister is 7 years older than me, my husband is also older, so even though I am in my 70's , I am still younger than many of my family members.

Do you think women over 60 can be attractive and sexy?Fashion magazines and media target women up to the age of 40 and at the most 50 years of age (example MORE magazine) with the idea that they are appealing and beautiful. There seems to be little or no media or commentary regarding the 60...

People who live long enough acquire many experiences both good and bad. I've noticed that older people seem to have more sadness about them. How can someone be happy past the age of 60 if they have had bad experiences in life?
