50 “I Will” Statements to Live By If You’re Over Fifty

50 "I WILL" Statements to Live By if You're Over Fifty

So much of turning 50 is pure fun, y’all. Wild, crazy, middle-aged, uninhibited, who-gives-a-rip, F-U-N. But there’s more to turning 50 than meets the bifocaled eye, my friends. Stuff happens. Stuff HAS happened. Stuff will continue to happen. Getting past 50 to 60 and beyond requires some serious resolve, if you ask me. We’ve got to stick together. We need some group-think tactics and some I WILL determination for this decade! So.Here.Ya.Go. I’ve gathered a little list of 50 I WILL statements for all of us to live by.
Tack ’em on the fridge (unless there’s nothing in it.) Post ’em on your bathroom mirror (if you can see that far). Share ’em with your bunco group, or talk about them over coffee down at the donut shop (not YET!?!).
Oh, well, whatever you do with this list,  I WILL love you for reading it at all!
