HAPPY BIRTHDAY, Kathy! Aging has its advantages:

You learn to not give a damn about what other people think

Old people can get away with being outrageous, and people simply smile and laugh

You can wear what you want and no one dares say a thing

You can give the same advice you always did, but people now think what you say is wise

You know how to weed out the crap

You don’t have to cook for every darn holiday and celebration

I was always a writer but lived in a bookkeeper’s body before I found Medium and broke free — well, almost. Working to work less and write more.
