Turning 50 is Nifty


There are many reasons to celebrate turning the age of 50. I survived it and will give you 50 reasons why it is great!

50 is not that old!

You could live another 50 years!

You have survived half of a century and that is reason enough to rejoice!

When I was in my 30's, I imagined ladies who were 50 would be wearing dentures, housecoats, and that they were ready to retire! Boy was I wrong!

Turning 50 is a true milestone in your life, but it may not feel like to you right now. I  turned 50 and and have some great news for you! It is not so bad after all.

There are lots of reasons to "Celebrate" this age in your life and you do not need to get up in the morning crying over it. There are many "Perks" for turning 50. You may not know about them yet, but you soon will!

What Women want as a Birthday Present at 50

Here are some ideas for gifts!

When women turn 50, they things that cost a LOT of money!

That's what I tell my husband. The house needs a "Face lift". It needs new carpet, flooring, kitchen counters, new windows, siding, and my office needs updating,  I would LOVE to go on a cruise...you get the idea.

For years you have sacrificed for our children and the house was always put on hold. The kids really didn't do the carpets any favors, but that's ok, we enjoyed the time when they were here!

I want to pick my home furnishing and updates out myself...don't try to buy them for me. I always say just give me some CASH, that works perfect too!

50 certainly isn't as old as it used to be! I've got a while to go yet, you've done a great job of selling it.

Fun 50 page! I won't make it there for another four years, but thanks for giving me something to look forward to!

The 50s are great. You just don't care anymore what people think. You know your time is limited, so you are free to live fully if you choose.
