I hope so. Definitely another year older as the calendar goes. Oh well.
It strikes me, though, how fortunately I am to have my own business as a personal trainer. If I had been able to stay with IBM where I worked for 18 years (and not being laid off years ago), I would bite my nails for fear of being let go now and hope that I can make it to retirement. No matter how one looks at it, age discrimination is alive and well in the work place, particularly when it comes to new hires.
How strange in some ways that my position as a self-employed person is so much more secure.
And I am so grateful that I am not counting down the days to a retirement day but instead look forward to every day with the joy of what I am doing.
Age? So what? 58? YESSSSSS !!!!! Happy Birthday to me !!!!!!
