When I'm 80 what will matter to me the most is if I'm leaving comfortably. If I can afford to buy my medications, if I can afford for someone to look after me, if I can afford to pay for my hospital bill. That's is why right now I'm saving up for my future because I want to leave in comfort.

HI santos mari chris: I think that's a really interesting question. When I'd be 80 I think that peace would be what will matter most: I mean to be in a relaxed place where I can be visited my grandchildren and family, to havbe the stability to pass my days just enjoying the nature and to take my medications.

That would be a feat to reach this age and still care about the world and ll that matters in life. i would have to say that my children would be foremost in my concerns no matter what age i would become.

Some of the women from my family suffered from dementia when they were in their 80's, and that is something that I hope that I would be able to avoid. if I become 80 years old, I hope that I will still be able to remember who my family is and remember the things that happened earlier in my life. I hope that I will still be able to be independent and make my own decisions, that is one of the most important things to me. I also hope that I would still be able to enjoy my life without a lot of physical illnesses.

I think being able to tell good stories and know I have lived life and done everything I have wanted to do will matter the most to me. I will want to be comfortable at that point but I will not care about having a lot of money because at that age, you are not able to do the fun things you can do when you are younger. I will enjoy telling stories and good experiences and hopefully have a lot of wise advice for my grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
