With age comes wisdom, so now that we're all in our 50s and 60s, I've asked my wise friends what they think about getting older.  Some girlfriends and I went around the dinner table saying what we think are some of the best things about getting older.  Here are some of the responses:

  • You're the master of your own destiny
  • You're less influenced by others
  • You have street smarts
  • You are capable of critical thinking
  • You are comfortable in your own skin
  • You're comfortable doing things alone (going to movie, dinner, etc.)
  • You have more confidence
  • Your priorities are clearer

Since many of you will have birthdays coming up soon, I thought you might enjoy that look at some of the good things about getting older.  What do you think about that list?  What would you add to it?
