So this past weekend I took my daughter to see the movie, “Where did you go, Bernadette?” While purchasing our tickets, I asked the man behind the counter for two tickets for the movie. He looked at me and asked, “One Senior, and one Adult?” I looked behind me for said senior, and I asked him to repeat himself. He said again, “One Senior, and one Adult?” I was taken aback (I am only 46 years old), and said, “I’m not Senior!!” “Oh,” he said…and quickly printed off two tickets.
With tears in my eyes, my daughter I walked in to the theater. She could see I was upset, and wrapped her arms around me. “Let’s go find a manager,” she quickly exclaimed. “No, no, honey,” its fine I said…”I’m not going to a manager just because I have hurt feelings.”
We went and got our snacks and drinks and headed in to the movie. I was still visibly upset, but tried to brush it off and watch the movie. The movie was perfect for what I was feeling, as Bernadette struggled with losing herself to her family vs. her creativity and it really hit home for me. I think most middle aged women have dealt with losing themselves in one way or another, and being a full time working Mom/wife I know I’ve lost a lot of the “fun” and “creative” sides of myself.
That being said, I’ve decided to make more time for myself and the things I love (this blog being one of them!!) and with our rainy summer months drawing to an end come September, my goal is to ramp up my running/walking with the aid of the wonderful supplements I take, Novo Renew. These supplements are all natural, and have a money back guarantee. Click this link to give them a try.
While I may be middle aged, I am not even close to being a senior, nor do I feel like despite my age creeping up on me. I wish people would really think about things they say before saying them, and while I may have been a Senior to that (probably yet don’t want to assume HAHA) high school student, him saying so sure didn’t make me feel very good.
Has anyone ever said anything so thoughtless to you? How did you respond? How do you manage “real life” and still doing the things you love?
