My youth was spent with my babies and husband and only in my mid 30's did I start working on the corporate goddess in me. Most people my age were already firmly entrenched in their careers, they had a vision while I had stumbled along and clung to whichever job that would pay me enough to feed and raise and my family.
|young friends...horsing around|
|old enough to drink, young enough to enjoy it|
Which is why my colleagues were at least 10 years younger wherever I
went, then they got younger and younger..... and some of them became really good friends. Colleagues and ex colleagues who are my good friends who I know I can trust and should I need a helping hand, I know they will be there. They give me advice and I do give some back....as I am supposed to be older and wiser... supposed to be..
I never really got on with my school friends, except for a very small handful of them and they all went off and had careers and husbands and kids and we drifted apart and they are very different to who I have become. I may be 51 but the mind hasn't quite caught up yet.....
So I hang out (when I do go out) with this younger bunch of girls who keep me sane, keep me insane and young at heart.
