Half way

49.5

It's only six months until Jimmas 5.0


This will be a difficult six months for me. Turning thirty was easy. Forty was no problem. Forty five, eh, no big deal. But hitting the half century mark is traumatic for me. I feel like I'm off my game.

Why am I grumbling like this?

Meh!

You'll be alright. really. That's when I came out. Five years later, I'm still getting older.
Aging is the only way to live.

I'm not sure what advice to give - but a trip someehere exotic might take your min off things - like Costa Rica (adventure and beauty) or Brazil (boys boys boys) or Peru (to see the awe of the hills)!

Haven't you heard? Fifty is the new forty-nine!

Awww, it'll be ok. Make sure you have a big party and above all make sure you get laid.

A cliche but still very true: becoming a year older isn’t so bad, when you consider the alternative.

I know many people, both professionally and personally, we do not live to see 50. they would have given anything and everything to have seen it. So whenever I feel bad about aging, I remember them; it helps keeps things in perspective.

I never thought I would hit 40 last year...I did... you should hit 50 with a BANG!...You look great...and just enjoy it... turning 50 is a good reason to have a lot of fun and enjoy life even more...you deserve it...

Weird, but I thought 50 would be a big deal. But it was just another birthday! Don't sweat it.

I think I like SteveA's advice... It's the best excuse to go somewhere and have fun

I'm turning 50 in August. It's just a number my friend.

Which means that I am 6 months behind you....since I just had my 49th last week. Yikes. I just received my first AARP card in the mail.
