my favourite age is ~ Now!

#midlife blog crestingthehill.com.au

Getting older has a lot of little niggles that go with it......the body isn't all it used to be, the hormones are running all over the place, I ache in places I never gave a thought to, I'm putting on weight without trying......and so the list goes on.

Sometimes I wonder if things were better in my 20's, or 30's, or 40's when my body was younger and life was sometimes easier. But when I stop to actually think back to what my life was like during those decades, it would be nice to visit for a day or so - but I wouldn't want to turn back the clock and live there permanently.

Midlife is a really good time of life - there is freedom and time to myself, and still plenty of good times to be had. It's a great stage of life to be in and I actually do think that it is my favourite age. Maybe my 60's or 70's will be even better, but for now I'm content with where I am and that is a real blessing.

  1. I'm 62 and you know what? I would go back, physically, to a youthful body in a flash. I would never go back to those years mentally - I treasure my hard earned maturity. Although, I could do without senior moments. Alana ramblinwitham.blogspot.com

    1. I'm the same Alana - I miss that younger body but not that younger mind :)

  2. I'd dearly love to be in my 30s again, only knowing what I know now and being the person I've become. If that makes sense, LOL!

    1. it does indeed Laurel - it's a shame we can't choose the physical age + the mental age we'd like to be.

  3. I have a friend who tells me weekly that the 70s is where it's at. Can't wait!
