I am 42 and proud of it! I wouldn't go back to my 20's or 30's for anything. I have worked hard to get where I am at 42 and, frankly, I am quite happy at this place in my life. I feel sexier now than I ever did when I was younger. I guess the saying that you get better with age is really true!
That's 'cause we is OLD!!! LOL!! Just kidding!! I love being in my forties and would not go back to my twenties if you paid me. I wouldn't want to revisit many of my experiences of the past. And yes, many of them were painful, but as the saying goes, what does not kill us, makes us stronger!! So emotionally, I can press a 50-ton truck, now.
So I say, bring on the Metamucil, Geritol and prune juice--the elixirs of the Golden Age!!
