Thought For The Day

After extensively writing and talking about turning the big 5-0 recently, I decided I wanted to find some uplifting quotes about hitting the half-century mark in life. I think today’s Thought For The Day is a great group of motivational quotes I am doing my best to meet…

“By the time we hit fifty, we have learned our hardest lessons. We have found out that only a few things are really important. We have learned to take life seriously, but never ourselves.” (Marie Dressler)

“Turning 50 can be difficult, sometimes dangerous. The danger is in that blip that can come from the fact that you become invisible, and if you’re not careful and don’t embrace that, it can trip you up and you lose confidence.” (Dawn French)

“Some people have a terrible time turning 50. I like to think of it in terms of condition. There’s new, used, vintage, antique, and ancient. I’ve reached the point of vintage and I’m ok with that. Vintage is endearing. It’s charming and usually has a lovely patina. It’s worn but soft and still quite useful. And in my opinion extremely attractive. One nice thing about vintage, is that it’s reached a point of being loved for what it is. It doesn’t have to “prove” itself anymore. It is what it is. It’s respected for it’s age and withstood the test of time. And so have I.” (Pam Kellogg)

“50 years: here’s a time when you have to separate yourself from what other people expect of you, and do what you love. Because if you find yourself 50 years old and you aren’t doing what you love, then what’s the point?” (Jim Carrey)

Peace, love, light, and joy,
