37 reasons why being 'almost-37' isn't so bad

Well, okay maybe not 37 reasons. How about 3?

1.) 37 is a nice age to look back and see how far you've come, the things you've accomplished, and all the ways you've become wiser.

2.) 37 is pretty much mid-career for me. 15 years 'til I'm out of the workforce forever.

3.) 37 isn't dead yet.

The end. Whew, that took a lot out of me! I'm not getting any younger, you know.

Those are all very good reasons....expecially #3!

I'm jealous over #2...I think I'll probably be working til I'm 82!

Ah, 37 ain't nothin'! (She who isn't that far behind nods excitedly)

"Isn't dead yet..."

That reminds me of the line in the Monty Python Movie...

"Bring out your Dead! Bring out your dead!"

"But I'm not dead yet."

Great positivity list, there! This is becoming a trend! ;-)

37 is NOT old. I've decided that. Now that I'm 32 myself, anything under 50 is still young. Let it be declared!!

Ah, age is relative ... it is how you feel and act that matters =)

Lookin' good mamma...

Happy Birthday!

Cheryl Wray said...

LOL! You're right--as my momma always says, "Another birthday is better than the alternative!"
I'm 38 and, yes, 38 is just fine!! I feel like I'm more comfortable with myself, in "my own skin" so to speak.
Does this mean that Tuesday was your birthday--if so, Happy Birthday! If not, oops . . .
Have a great day!

Renee said...

Didn't mean to confuse y'all - my birthday isn't until Saturday, I just did this as an anticipation post. 2 more days 'til the big day.

Suzanne said...

Well, I'm 37, and I can attest that indeed I am not dead yet. So that is something!
