Linda from bean town <em>213</em> <em>199</em> <em>306</em> Thu, 30 Jan 2014 16:23:52 EST What are the Best things about being over 50 ? http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=0x15534x56562111 I just turned 50 this last June so I'm not far over that mark yet but I'd have to say that: <BR> <BR> 1. Being 50 I feel I'm not trying to prove to myself who I am anymore (I know). <BR> 2. I feel a great sense of self acceptance & a greater appreciation of others. <BR> <BR> Curious to know what others will have to say about being over 50. <BR> <BR> <em>295</em> <BR> Jane <BR> Wed, 29 Jan 2014 11:31:39 EST Welcome MAVERICK59 and all the new members! http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=0x15534x56497278 Hi and welcome to the team!
