"Nature gives you the face you have at twenty; it is up to you to merit the face you have at fifty." --Coco Chanel "A man who views the world the same at fifty as he did at twenty has wasted thirty years of his life." --Muhammad Ali
In my fourth book, In it for the Long Run, one of the most popular chapters with the readers was ‘You can call me Al.’ It was all about my good friend Al Barker, the only person I’ve ever met who brakes with his left foot. Wanting to capitalize on the popularity of using titles of Paul Simon songs, I reviewed his repertoire for an applicable title for this book. Since the book is about my last year on earth before turning 60 years of age, I initially considered ‘Slip Slidin’ Away’ but thought that might project a negative connotation towards getting older. Instead I chose one of Simon’s more popular songs and gave it my own slant as I wanted to do 50 things I’d never done before in the 12 months leading up to becoming a sexagenarian (don’t get the wrong idea--it just means a person between 60 and 69 years of age). On my 60th birthday (December 10, 2014) someone asked me how I felt. I said ‘just like I did when I was 59. Heck, it was only yesterday’ (although my grandson calls it ‘lasterday’ which if you really think about it makes a lot more sense). As for the 50 things I’d never done before. don’t expect anything outrageous (jumping out of an airplane), dangerous (wrestling an alligator) or spectacular (making a dinosaur appear--but if I could my grandson would be SO impressed). Just 50 things pretty much anyone could do...as long as they have the right attitude. And by ‘right attitude’ I mean ‘sometimes you just have to say what the ___.’ Just because I turned 60 doesn’t mean I reached maturity overnight. After all, maturity is for old people.
If you’re approaching that huge milepost with less than your usual birthday enthusiasm, open this book to discover all the ways in which turning fifty might just be the best thing yet. The authors share a wide range of ideas for making this major life transition a time of opportunity, growth, and celebration. As Sheila Key writes in the introduction: “What Peg and I hope you’ll hear among these pages is the irrepressible rustling of joy — joy enough to make you bust out laughing, sure, and the kind that comes from improving your mental outlook and physical habits, even just a little. But also the simple joy of having lived this long, of being able to look back over five full decades and forward to who-knows-how-many more; not to mention...the joy of living more mindfully in the ever-present Now.” Bursting with anecdotes, activities, “things to try at least once,” advice from a savvy doctor, and clever ways to remember it all, this little volume sparkles like a treasure chest. It’s as chock-full of useful and entertaining gems as your life is full of memories, regrets, dreams, and possibilities.
