Revenge of the The Third Life


By the time you reach sixty the world is done with  you. All your intents and purposes become invisable to others.

But think of it as your third life.

There’s childhood, protected guided and rebellion.

Adulthood, conformity, family responsibility and stress.

Then, Sixty.

Others see it as all over, you are on the scrap heap, old, “She’s Sixty, you know!”

The revenge is, you have FREEDOM!

You can be you, not what society expects you to be, what you think you ought to be.

Do what you want to do at last!  Sixty is heaven!

A heaven where you need to slow down, though ;so your legs can catch up, and your head can do the filing; while you make secret plans to head out into that third section of life, with or without the latest mobile.(It’s your choice!)

Don’t sit this dance out!  Make it happen for you.


Blog Note: I’ve not  been on wordpress much for a while, because of a life changing  event; but time heals. Thanks Liz
