Last Sunday, I shared some thoughts about the Whoopsie! of getting older (things are slowing down physically for me) and the Whoopie! of getting older – I stopped sweating the small stuff.
Some of our readers responded, sharing a slowdown in memory recall speed (welcome to the club!) that they still manage to roll with. A very inspiring message from another reader had a Whoopie about her ability to keep learning – she can read music and play guitar and she learned in her 70s.
We’ll keep this thread open so you can continue to add your insights on the ups and downs of getting older. Let us know in the comments!
