You know, so I watched the new Sex and the City re-release. And tell you the truth. I was just a bit disappointed in the show, not because I don’t like the characters. I love the characters. I love Samantha too, and she’s not on there. But the reason I was disappointed was it seemed like all of the characters were sort of giving up, you know, they were giving up because they were getting old and the reflection of age was kind of paramount. And there was this underlying bit of sadness and death and decay because now they breached this milestone of 50. And you know, maybe, maybe that’s a reality because I’m not quite there but close. But I, I know a lot of 50 year olds who don’t think so darkly and don’t think that they’re outdated and don’t think they’re dinosaurs.
A lot of them are doing things in reaching goals that never reached before. And so a lot of them look amazing. And so that was my biggest disappointment with the show was that it was so focused on their age and how their age was sort of holding them back. And they were no longer as vibrant as they’ve ever been. And my patients who I see in their fifties both men and women seem to have this deeper level of satisfaction. Maybe it’s their appearance. Maybe it’s what they’ve achieved in life. But I didn’t love that bit of dismay and sorrow.
