SHARON WROTE: If you’re proud of your accomplishments and are in love with life…every day is full of creativity and excitement.
I’m a mom & now I can’t remember why I thought life was so great before. My all nighters & the bottles in the pantry are completely different now, but I wouldn’t change a thing. I have so much more confidence & peace & satisfaction & love. I wouldn’t trade a mountain of dirty diapers for my old life ever! I love every stinking one!
FORMERLY HIGH CQ WROTE: I went to parties, museums, restaurants, bars, sporting events, the theatre, the ballet, . . out with friends, out making friends. Now I am ‘Uncool’. A ‘fun ruiner, party pooper’ say my children.
MAY POPPS WROTE: When a cute 22 yr old guy @ work asked me a questioned about payroll tax withholding “since I was a mother-figure around here” I was crushed! …But driven to work harder to look even better, lost more weight, & actually wore a 2 piece to the beach in Florida, without embarrassing my kids.
ROBUNDLE WROTE: Wow, that is the first time someone has ever called me “Middle-aged”. Not sure that I liked it, but I guess it means in a way that I have arrived and can now demand a certain amount of respect. Out of my way…you youngsters!
NICOLE WROTE: My scary next step…I am seeking a lower paying executive level position with a large non-profit that works with kids. Something that I have always wanted to do, but could never give up the income. I still can’t afford to, but I have to have a happy next 20 years!
NATALIE: I will never again be 110 pounds parading around on a stage in high heels dyed to match my one piece swimsuit.
NOTE: I AM TOLD THIS IS A HOAX, POSSIBLY PROPAGATED BY A “MEN’S RIGHTS” GROUP. I THINK BETTER TO LEAVE IT UP TO INSPIRE DISCUSSION. STEPH
LILLI WROTE: I finally figured out that I had not grown up and had not truly embraced adulthood. This was six months ago. I’ve made some profound changes in my life since then.
