As younger people we are always trying to fit in, make impressions. As we reach middle age, we become more comfortable with who we are / we've become , and desire to be accepted as who we are in the stead of being what others may wish us to be .B)

Whilst I could never speak for Ms.JUJO, my interpretation is, age is but a state of mind, and Ms JUJO has yet to mentallyv reach the age to where she considers herself a senior, tis a great approach, and if we all took this approach, our senior years would become a lot more enjoyable ;) , nit then as I said beforehand, I cannot speak for Ms. JUJO B)

At 10 I was a senior in a primary school, at 16, senior in a secondary school, at 21. as a new parent, a senior member of a new family. At 60 I was given a senior's card so I can see movies more cheaply, and then a pension card at 62 1/2 as the female rate crept up to equal the male 65. I've lived for more than 3 generations so that must mean I've passed my second childhood. Right now I'm wondering if it's time to grow up but ...maybe tomorrow. No sense in hurrying at my age.

with being a senior comes the understanding that was missing earlier on in life
