“Middle school is for being like everyone else; middle age is for being like yourself.” – Victoria Moran, self-help scribe
(Quote for the 2015 Wild Words from Wild Women 2015 Desk Calendar)
I think middle age was more for figuring out yourself and then you get to be yourself … if you have the determination. You have to let some things (and some people) go and insist on shaping your life and yourself to your own standards. Your vision may not be what others approve of. Or, you may be part of a crowd and wind up defending your “sameness,” but that’s okay too.
