Sometimes I embrace getting older (I'll be 50 next year) and then other times I wish I was 20 again - like when someone calls me 'ma'am.'

Aside from possibly being thought of as an 'old hag,' one thing that's really bothering me about aging is its impact on my career. I feel as if I have so much to offer but because I am older, and don't think quite as quickly on my feet as I used to, that I am often passed over for younger, more vibrant employees. It might just be all in my head, but it is certainly the impression I have been getting while job hunting these past few years.
