Amazing fifty years of age & still alive
Health and well-being plays a big part in enjoying the latter years in life more so than in the first fifty. The children have reached adulthood and you are looking forward to having grandchildren and your retirement years. Unless you have a wealth of good health retirement will not be what you wish it to be. It is time to aim high again just like you did when you were just married. Aim high again for the day you will finish your working life. Do not aim to just sit in front of a TV with a glass in your hand all day etc.
Relax that is for sure.
Fifty to sixty years ago men especially retired from the workforce and for the next six months they sat in front of the new trend of day time TV with a glass and a full plate enjoying their retirement for six months but were then buried six foot under. I have seen people in high places in good health and when things went bad for them they stressed in a big way. Next thing they ended up dying from all sorts of illness, heart, cancer, etc.
Stress brings on all sorts of illness very quickly to health & wealth.

………… Laughter is the best medicine,
While stitching a cut on the hand of a 75 year old farmer,
whose hand was caught in the squeeze gate while working cattle,
the doctor struck up a conversation with the old man.
Eventually the topic got around to politicians and their role as our leaders.
The old farmer said, “Well, as I see it, most politicians are ‘Post Tortoises’.’
Not being familiar with the term, the doctor asked him what a ‘post tortoise’ was.
The old farmer said, “When you’re driving down a country road and you come across a fence post with a tortoise balanced on top, that’s a post tortoise.”
The old farmer saw the puzzled look on the doctor’s face so he continued to explain. “You know he didn’t get up there by himself, he doesn’t belong up there, he doesn’t know what to do while he’s up there, he’s elevated beyond his ability to function,and you just wonder what kind of dumb arse put him up there to begin with.”
Best explanation of a politician I’ve ever heard.
