Yup, I said it. I WILL live to be 125. When I tell people that they either laugh at me and say "Sure you will" Or they ask me why I want to live that long. What they don't realize is when i say it. I am not saying I will be like a person who drools and cant feed themselves. Cant walk without a walker. I have my sites on being very active. I will not use a walker and I will not drool or need someone to feed me. I will be self sufficient even at 125. 125 is my target age but if I live longer so be it!! As far as why, I want to live that long. Its because I want to see what they world is like at the end of the century. I want to see all of the new inventions. Whow knows maybe they will discover some way to keep a person younger. Yes I am very optimisitc and YES I will live that long. Who knows in the year 2090, someone might read this and actually be saying. She made it!!! How long do you plan to live and why??

I too would love to live that long, so long as i was self-sufficient. But if the world is "doomed" like they say it will be, then i don't think my old age will be happy and healthy.

Well, I am a positive person and I dont believe the world is doomed.....I only see wonderful things happening and I want to be apart of it.

You "only" see wonderful things? Are your eyes and ears open? Yes there are wonderful things in the world, but most of them are being destroyed.

Are your eyes and ears open. Look at al the wonderful things that are around you. The beautiful flowers that bloom outside your window. The birds that chirp in the tree tops. Granted bad things do happen. But bad things happen everywhere. Just as good things happen everywhere. it al depends on what you choose to dwell on. I choose the good things. If I can do something to change the bad things then I will find a well to do it to make it better. If I cant and its beyond my power then there is nothing I can do. Except pray that God will take care of it in some way shape or form.

I used to want to live long. Like to 100. I used to have a fire for life. I miss that. As I get older, I find myself changing my mind. I am grateful that I made it through yesterday. It would be nice if I get through today. Completing this week will be an accomplishment. I have been very depressed lately so my current outlook is gloomy. There are days I wonder why I bothered to wake up. I am hoping this mood passes soon cause it is starting to wear on my patience. Everyone goes through "down periods" in their lifetime and I am hoping this is mine. Those who know me through my writings have come to know that I have a tendancy to cover my true emotions with humor. Thank the Lord for friends who can read between the lines. They give me hope and inspiration. They send me really neat emails and post beautiful pics on my profile. So if you ask me today how old I want to live to.........my answer would have to be.....uh, tomorrow. How long I will actually live is up to God, not me.

awwwwwwww I am sorry your feeling down *big hugs* I hope you feel better fast . Yes, I agree about how long a person lives is up to God. But he does already have it planned as to when we will die. I just feel he wants me to live to be 125 because of my positve attitude. He wants me to show everyone who didnt beleive me, that with positives comes your dreams. Some people dwell too much on negative things. I'm not meaning you at all. I know everyone gets down. I was really down when I lived in Portland although not many people saw my down side. I hid it pretty good. But it was afecting my health. Now that I am happy and more healthy

Viva my sweet twin! lol Well you are certainly stubborn enough to do it sweets! I don't know what age I want to live to but I do know that there is always something else being developed or invented and one more thing you want to help your kids with! Guess I would be satisfied if I were around to see my kids settled and happy - then I would be able to go without a struggle...or would I? xxxx

I'd like to live long enough to make a good and lasting contribution to this world. So far I haven't done that (unless you count myLot posts as such LOL) and I haven't got a clue as to what it is and how I'm going to do it. Meanwhile, I just live one day at a time. That's all most of us can do anyway.

Perhaps you can put it in a time capsule and bury it under a tree, leave a will for your dependents and let them discover your "treasure" :P I WILL live up to that age ONLY when I have no money and health problems. I would not want to live up to that age and ended up becoming a burden to my dependents, the society or whoever takes pity on me and take me in.

I tell my kids that I'm going to live to be 120. Then I tell them that means when they are 85 and 90, they'll have to take care of me!

As long as I was active and stuff, I would love to live that long. I could see my grandkids and great grandkids and share a lot of history with them. How do you think you will live that long?

I just know. I decided that when my dad turned 90. if he can still be alive and up and very active at 90 then I can do the do the same at 125.When he was my age the average life span was about 60. So he aimed high. I figure by the time I am up there the average life span will be over 100 anyways.

As long as I live until I am 80 or so I'll be happy. Of course I'd like to live longer then that if I can and am still pretty much self efficient. But as long as I actually get to 80 or even there about and am healthy happy then I'll be very happy.

At least you have a goal in mind. I wish you luck and happiness. We all need to make goals for ourselves.... Hugs to you my friend.

Ick :S I wish you all the luck! Not downing on you but I don't want to live NEAR that long unless there are some "movie-like" advances in technology that keep me looking/feeling good. I don't mean disrespect but "old people" just have this....odor IMO. I couldn't handle it knowing that when I get to a certain age there will be people just like I am now thinking the same thing about me. (did that even make sense?) I love all the little old folks that are all active and bouncy and happy...but from a distance, they make me kind of nervous although not as nervous as the drooly ones do. I'm only 21 though, perhaps time will change my opinion. GOOD LUCK & BEST WISHES TO YOU IN YOUR ENDEAVOR!

I haven't thought about living that long but sure it will be great to see what the world would be like at 2090. There's no telling how long I will live hope I can make it past 90 so if I can make it past 90 then I can do it to 125 too! Just have to think positive not negetive and not have to hear what other people are saying like oh we are so crazy to think that we can live that long like you said that is your target and hope that you do make it. As a matter of fact I am kinda scared of growing old and wrinkle but that's life!

Wow--- I’ve never really thought about how long I will love- I hope I live long enough to meet my great-great- grandchildren- : ) My daughter is 10 now- and I’m 34- I can honestly say I don’t want to live to 125 – not unless I’m healthy as a horse and very active- I don’t want to have people take care of me-

I too want to live long and live in good health. The most important thing is to live in good health. If I am not in good health and have to be taken care of at that old age, I'd rather die earlier. Now I'm in good health and I'm optimistic, my only bad habbit is smoking. I think I can live to be over 100!

Way to go!! Personally, I wouldn't want to live that long b/c of the way the world is turning. Things are nothing like when I was a kid and to be honest, I feel bad for the kids today that have to grow up in this world. **AT PEACE WITHIN** ~~STAND STRONG IN YOUR BELIEFS~~

I would love to live long and hopefully have a better 40 next years than the ones I already have lol. I do hope that you reach your goal and may God help you live to be even more than that and super healthy. I think I need to start doing more Tai Ji again and get back into being more healthy. I spend too much time online but I can't go out to get a regular job due to my situation.

Hi Snow! Good luck with reaching 125. I'll probably make it into my 90s as I'm fairly healthy and active. I would like to be fully in control to the end and would only want to get any older if they didn't change - I don't want to get senile and need to be looked after all the time.

The maximum average was +80 in my family. I like to live longer and more active, not on bed that some one have to take care of me. I can observe the developing world.

Oh my, I'm away for a month or so and come back to something as heavy as this.... Honestly I have no idea but I've always told the kids I was going to live forever so I could drive them crazy like they have me :) Right now I'm in great health though and although don't dream of 100 I do think I'll live long and like you sis be active.
