woman over 50 smiling on the phonePin
I realized that women 50 and over kinda have a new lease on life and view things so differently. You could say we matured a bit. This is just a fun article on 50 things women love about being 50 and over. I hope you like it. Please share in the comments down below if I missed something! I remember when I became a 50-year-old woman, I thought my life was over. Haha! Nothing could be further from the truth. Without further ado …

1 We seriously don’t give a crap about basically anything anymore.

2 We wear what we want, and we don’t care if you like it or not (see #1).

3 Young men are attracted to us-super flattering by the way.

4 We’ve retired or close to retiring-buh bye to 9–5 and that bee-otch in office #4.

5 Our kids are grown and gone-love you see you bye!

6 Many of us have cute grandbabies to spoil rotten and then return to their parents.

10 We have boundaries now and know how to say NO and mean it.

11 Every day is Saturday.

12 We can stay in our jammies all day if we want.

16 Road trips don’t have to be planned-just get in the car and go!

34 We can volunteer as much as we want.

35 We can do more things that bring us joy.

36 We don’t need anyone’s approval or permission to do things.

37 We’re wiser.

38 We’re still young and have lots of life left in us to do more fun things, alone if we want to.

39 Our friends totally get us, love us, and appreciate us

40 We can get away with a lot of silly things because we’re ‘older’ — “oh officer no I didn’t see that sign!”

41 We flick fear and push the limits knowing that there’s always gonna be a safety net.

42 We embrace change and love a challenge and adventure.

43 We have a poop ton of freedom.

Ok, this list may apply to all

I get that some of these things women love could possibly apply to women of all ages, but…well, this is my list. See #1 again if you have to 😂

I may have missed some things and some things may not apply to you. What did I miss on this list?
