Here's my philosophy:

Turning 50 is better than the alternative.
I turned 59 on July 16.
My mom didn't like to turn 60 so she kept counting:
fifty-eight, fifty-nine, fifty-ten, fifty-eleven... (She is fifty-twenty-three now)
Or you can make it like Peter Wingfield who celebrated the 25th anniversary of his 25th birthday last summer.

I'll turn 50 next spring but I keep forgetting how old I am and always have to make a quick calculation if someone asks me. Depending on how much sleep I get I usually feel between 23 and 40

Re: Turning 50 on the 22d...

My husband is happy that I'm finally acting older than 25! When I was 30, he said my maturity level was maybe--maybe--18. When I hit 40, he said I was closer to 25.

Now, in many ways I'm acting closer to 30...but at some point, ones cares less what others think. Add that to my natural obliviousness and I'm likely regressing a bit. I do think more, though. When I have to. Which I try to avoid.
