I heard a heartwarming interview on radio this morning . The interviewee was a 75 year old woman, intelligent and well spoken, with the most wicked sense of humour. She spoke of her life and the many paths it has taken which were all very interesting but it was her openness about her relationships with men that made my ears prick up.This woman had raised a family alone , having been widowed very early in her marriage. She worked 2 jobs to ensure her children did not go without and put each through university. Later , she attended uni and she went on the get a PhD at age 70.
She spoke so frankly abut age being a state of mind and how she still enjoys an active sexual relationship with a young man of 72! Good for her. Too often women reach 40, 50 or 60 and are regarded as being past it. Admittedly, some do their own cause no good at all,paying minimal attention to their appearance and resigning themselves to middle age or have partners who have taken them for granted and depleted them of their self esteem and confidence as a woman. Life expectancy now is well into the 80’s , so why not embrace life fully and enjoy being a sensual and fulfilled woman. This wonderful woman made my day 🙂
Thank you for all the comments and emails I received overnight. It took a while but I have replied to everyone. lol
