Thoughts about being after 50

Life after 50, in many ways, is more satisfying for me. More content and confident than I was in my 20s and 30s, I have found some of the answers I was so desperately looking for in my younger years.

I am less likely to be battered psychologically or emotionally by others because of the strength I have found. Life is good.
