Age is Just a Number! How Old Do You Really Feel?

By Margaret Manning December 12, 2015 Mindset

One of the most fascinating aspects of running Sixty and Me is getting to interact with all of the fabulous women in our community. At the same time, managing a community of 100,000 women over 60 is a challenge. Why? Because everyone experiences life after 60 completely differently!

Some of us are still interested in fashion and beauty. Others are enjoying the freedom to wear whatever we want. Some women are in the best shape of their lives. Others are struggling with serious health problems. Many women are embracing life after 60 as a time to explore and pursue their passions. Others are quite content to “age gracefully.”

Is it Really True that Age is Just a Number?

As I think about the women in our community, I am reminded of a quote that I love from Yoko Ono, who said: “Some people are old at 18 and some are young at 90. Time is a concept that humans created.” It certainly is!

Age is Just a Number - Yoko Ono - Some people are old at 18 and some are young at 90. Time is a concept that humans created.

So, I’m really curious what you think about this! Please join the conversation below.

Do you believe that age is just a number? Why? How old do you feel on the inside? Let’s get a conversation started!
