I've noticed already that at my current age I'm somewhere past people listening to me and not being heard at all as an 'old' lady.
I've always been an observer of life. Observing relationships, marriage, parenting...all of it really. I remember seeing younger women ignoring older women and not really giving it much thought. Now the closer I get to this age of wisdom, the more I see this reality.
I suppose that's why so many young women repeat failed history...because they don't learn from the women who have already lived it.
Just observations from the edge...
