If Only it were the truth - 50

Turning 50 - If only it were true...

When turning 50 there are many things I wish were true:

My hair didn't need constant root touch ups.

My skin didn't need spackel to hide the lines.

My feet didn't resemble leather sandals (without the presence of a sandal.)

I could stay up past midnight and still get up and go to work.

I didn't wake up in the middle of the night (for no explainable reason) except to go to the bathroom.

I didn't fall asleep every time I sit down somewhere

I could still eat peanut butter without my stomach screaming in revolt.

My hands didn't resemble prunes.

I didn't worry about every french fry I eat.

I didn't think my mom was photo bombing me every time I pass a mirror.
