Filling Your Life with Positive People is a Key to Happiness After 60

By Margaret Manning September 16, 2015 Lifestyle

So much of our life is spent trying to please other people. While some women are able to find the strength to truly be themselves at every stage in their lives, the majority of us feel compelled to care what other people think along the way.

But, regardless of how we got here, the good news is that, now that we are in our 60s, we all have the opportunity to be who we really are.

In another of my favorite quotes, Dr. Seuss said, “Be who you are and say what you feel because those who mind don’t matter and those who matter don’t mind.” I couldn’t agree more!

Dr. Seuss - Be who you are and say what you feel

Let’s embrace ourselves with love and affection. Let’s celebrate our uniqueness. Let’s fill our world with positive people who make us happy every single day. Let’s be ourselves and say what we feel!

I’d love to get your perspective on this. Please answer the following questions and don’t forget to “like” and share this article to keep the conversation going!

Are you more or less comfortable with yourself now that you are a little older? Do you agree with Dr. Seuss that “those who mind don’t matter and those who matter don’t mind?”
