I just read a great article on Web MD. I’m not sure when it was posted, since I couldn’t find a date on it, but it really doesn’t matter, since it is completely relevant today. It’s so great, in fact, that I feel compelled to share it with our readers. It’s called, “50 Great Things About Women Over 50: Why Women Over 50 Love Their Age.” Here is a description of what is in the article:
“What do other women think is the best thing about turning 50? To find out, we asked WebMD readers, as well as a doctor (Christiane Northrup, MD, author of Women’s Bodies, Women’s Wisdom); a clinical psychologist (Nancy O’Reilly, PsyD); and a retirement lifestyle specialist (Cynthia Barnett, EdD). We also checked out what prominent authors Shirley W. Mitchell (Fabulous After 50 and Sensational After 60) and Jane Ganahl (Naked on the Page: The Misadventures of My Unmarried Midlife) had to say about women aging, then sprinkled in a few observations from 60 Minutes‘ crusty humorist Andy Rooney.”
I’ll just say this: it is full of great quotes and great thoughts, and it applies to women over 50 or 60 or 70! Here’s a couple samples:
“A woman over 50 knows the value of celebrating life. She’s sizzling, not fizzling. She’s savvy, not sad. — S. Mitchell”
“You learn to fuel your life from your inner wisdom, from your soul. Your life only works well if it’s fueled from what’s really true inside, not from what’s current in magazines. – C. Northrup.”
I could write a synopsis, but I think it’s best if I just share the link: http://women.webmd.com/features/50-great-things-about-women-over-50
And here is just a sampling of some great women over 50 who exemplify what the article is talking about!
