As a middle-aged woman (woah…that sounds SO serious and old), I find myself at times questioning if I am “too old” to be doing some of the things I do…
Am I too old to wear so much color?
Am I too old to still love dessert as much as I do?
Am I too old to sing to the top of my lungs in the car to a Top 40 song by someone less than half my age?
Am I too old to watch teen rom coms on Netflix?
Am I too old to crimp my hair or have a fun nail art?
Am I too old to try new things?
The answer to all of these things in obviously…no!
But I often have those moments of self-doubt where I trick myself into thinking that I shouldn’t be doing something that makes me happy. Why do we think that?
Are we actually really more worried what other people think? Maybe they think I’m too old…or in fact, what if they think they shouldn’t be doing those things, therefore we (at the same age) shouldn’t be doing or feeling those things?
While it’s not easy to do, I’m done with worrying if I’m too old for it. If it makes you happy (and it’s legal ;), just do it. Get joy wherever you can and give joy whenever you can…no matter how old you are! Are you with me?
