We all know how important it is to good mental health to have fun.

Then why did we say “act your age” or “not age appropriate “. So Ageist.

I will do and wear whatever I want. Farting near friends. Laughing till I pee. Skipping. Jeese, whatever it takes to add some fun to my day.

I love a dirty joke and always will. I live my Jean actually brings back awesome memories..just try to take it away from me when I am 85!

  1. Going to comedy shows. Yes!

2.Cracking jokes at work. Yes!

3.Trying to freak my mother out with bad language. Yes!

4. Freaking my kids out with my clothing or actions. Yes!

This year I heard. “Mom would you stop getting tattooed” and ” are you really wearing purple pants to my game” I live for comments from my kids like that. Isnt that why we have kids? So we can have some fun with them.

I will never stop having fun and ageism certainly won’t stop me it just provokes me.


My life has made me grateful for the little things. My work is my passion. I have worked with Seniors for 30 years. I have seen the way we view aging. There are changes coming. In our attitude and our self discovery. Aging is an awesome time of inner growth and development of who we are. We become who we were always meant to be. I love it!
