What is the best thing about getting older?





  • More secure with self (less concerned with what others think)

  • My body is so much better than when I was young

  • Freedom to be myself

  • Relationships are deeper, more real as I age

  • Slower paced lifestyle

  • Enjoying children/grandchildren more

  • I'm more independent than when I was young

  • I'm more confident now

  • Something else, please share



You will be able to change your vote.

I have to say that I am more confident with myself and therefore I do not "really" care what others think of me and right now my life is more of slower pace...when I was working before kids/right after I started having my kids...I was "rushing" around to live life in the city and it was "hurting" me...if only I knew then what I know now...it would have been sooo much more fun...

But life is good now...I can't complain...my dh and I are about to celebrate our 20th anniversary next week, my kids are doing great ...LIFE IS GOOD...

I voted "other" because it's really a combination of being more secure with myself and more confident!
