Hi everyone! I'm 54 years old , and I'm trying to think of the good things and the bad things that come along with aging . Beleive it or not I can think of alot of good , and I'm wonderining if good out weighs the bad . Good - You don't have to worry about getting pregnant , lol Good- You can start getting senior discounts ! Good - More wisdome Bad- Aches^& pains Bad - Age spots I know there are alot more .. Can you help by naming some of the good and bad parts of growing older ? I think it would be fun, and help some of us feel better about growing older.

the first good thing that comes to my mind is, saying that you forgot would be enough of an excuse, things that you buy during old age would never wear out, and also, you will enjoy the benefits of your health insurance...i cannot think of any major pains other than physical ailments in old age, otherwise, if our heart is young, we are still younger no matter we are 100 or 110
