Women are looking and acting younger these days. Have you heard the phrase "50 is the new 40" meaning 50-year-old women are not the 50-year-olds you remember from your mother's day. If 50-year-olds are looking younger, are healthier, and are more active than ever before do that make them not be 50? They may be just starting a new career or they may have kids at home. Some women these days starts their family in their 40s. Hell! that's too old to be running behind a kid after working hard all day. So here's something to consider: "Why do the AARP start hounding you to join as soon as you turn 50?" Especially since most of their benefits seem to apply to people who really are retired and living on Medicare? I'm thinking this is giving 50 a bad name—at least, an unrealistic and negative image of the age. AARP did not get the new age change memo. When I see people like Puff Daddy and Keisha Cole mother dressing like 20 years olds it highlights the fact that they are older instead of younger. Question! if I am 50 and say I am 40 do that make it so?
