Growing younger

With practice, it’s possible to grow younger. It’s just a matter of ignoring everything you hear and women are very good at it, since we’ve had to practice.

At 25 years old, we hear we are too old to make snow angels, wear miniskirts or cry whenever the mood seems right for it.

At 35 years old, we hear we are too old to make babies…something about the deteriorating state of the egg.

At 45 years old, we hear we are too old to get ahead – careerwise; and woe betide career changers. Tisn’t done.

At 55 years old, we hear we are too old to for romance or anything that even vaguely resembles romance.

Ignoring what we hear is a great way to grow younger and feel cheerful. Everyone should attempt this.

Hello! I'm Michele Fitzpatrick, a Chicago writer. Like our town, a work in progress. As a journalist, teacher and writing coach I think all of us live our stories and sharing them creates moments that remind us we're connected. And that is enough.
