My name is Frank Martin and I am 50 years old. I always feared being middle aged because I thought it would be the beginning of the end for me in every possible way. I now know that I had nothing to fear, because despite being middle aged I have found a tremendous wealth of energy and happiness.
It may be true that there is no actual fountain of youth (wouldn’t that be great!), but in a matter of speaking it is real. I’ve found so many different ways to keep myself active, attractive and happy even in my semi-old age. I don’t really feel middle aged at all, and I certainly don’t think of myself as being old. You are only as old as you feel, as the saying goes.
I’ll admit that there are quite a few different challenges that I’ve faced as I’ve gotten older, but I have always managed to find ways to get around them, little life hacks if you will. If you want to know how to slide into being middle aged gracefully, I really think that my own experiences will help you a lot.
The truth is that you don’t have to let yourself go just because you have reached “a certain age.” Do you find that you don’t have as much hair as you used to? Is your dating life not what you want it to be? I’ve struggled with these issues and many more. I always find that there is an effective solution to every problem if you are creative and bold enough.
Whether you are thirty or fifty years old, life can be extremely fun and joyful. There may be nothing you can do about getting older, but that doesn’t mean you have to give up in any sense. I have had my fair share of difficulties like everyone else, and I’ve always managed to come through all of them unscathed (for the most part at least.)
The fountain of youth is really nothing more than a state of mind mixed with some creative problem solving. I may be 50 years old, but I still feel like I’m twenty. Sure, I’ve had lots of problems to deal with, but nothing I couldn’t handle. I’m still enjoying my youth even though most people wouldn’t necessarily say I am a very young person.
