Positives of Older Age

THERE ARE Some positives to being older and we need a good long, long list. I hope to start it. Nothing is as serious as it was. Instant gratification is a good thing now because the moment is probably the best one so make the most of it. If you are now a senior, all your obligations are probably met and you are free to do as you like. If you are single and a senior, you can focus on fun things only and most people will think any relationship is very innocent and harmless. There is medicare in US, and senior discounts of various kinds. These come to mind and I know there are others; I am hoping there are a lot of others, so please add them to this list. Hoping for a LOT of others.

    Well when I turned 60 I retired from Marshalls where I worked for 17 years. I sold my house and bought a new condo and I was able to travel and go places I also wanted to see like Ireland. I spent a lot of time with my grandsons and took them every summer for 10 years to Stone Harbor, N.J. and last year took my family on a cruise to Bermuda. Now I am very blessed to be able to do this and loved the 11 years I was able to live out in Fremont, Ca. and get to go to Hawaii twice while I lived out there. So my life is good and enjoy every day to the fullest.:)
