best age to be

This is totally a what if question of course....but looking back at your life or even looking forward to the future. If you could put yourself back to a certain age, or freeze time when you reached a certain age, what age would you want to stay at forever. I am in my mid 30s and my 30s so far have not been so great. I often think about my mid 20s and think those were the days. I am scared to get older and be stuck in the past so I hope I am just going through a phase. Just wanting to know if you guys feel the same, or if there are some older ones out there that can tell me they had another part of life that was the best.

Once a woman is already on her 30s, it would be difficult for her to get married. This is true sometime a decade or 2 ago. Nowadays, where in ladies work hard and even earn more money compared to men, then this isn't necessarily true. Ladies already knew how to took care of themselves and even look younger than their true age but I'm not saying that ladies in the 1990s do not know how to take care of themselves. So don't be afraid if you are aging. You must be thankful that you have reached that far. Others are wishing to reach that age and even pay large sums of money just to continue living. It's a blessing pal! Be happy!

Life begins at 40. That's what they said. Although I'm only on my mid-20s, I am already experiencing best things that life can give. But I know that as we grow older, there are a lot of better things that are yet to come. Maybe on your part, being at that age is the best so far. As you reach a few more years, then you will say that you are still at your best.

i would be given a chance, i want to be 17 again. it was the time when i was so happy and inlove with my boyfriend. it was the happiest time of my life. nothing really mattered but just the two of us. our world revolved around each other. now, we are too busy to even do teasing touches that we used to do.

I am 62 years old now but I still look forward to every day being better than the rest. In times of great difficulty, I live for each day and try to find happinesses and things to enjoy on a day to day or hour to hour basis. When everything is looking bright, I just try to barrel on, faster if necessary. I never get stuck with the past and just try to move on, based on my vision and things to accomplish.

Thirty years is not enough.You have to go stage of life .Experience the different struggle challenges happiness enjoyment bitterness of life.As you get older you become matured you understand the meaning of life .Having a family encountered new friends grand children is so much fun.

I have mid 20s too and if I could I would have 18 forever. I really loved my 18 time and I definitely would like to live that time forever, but unfortunately we need to get older and it seems that the time is passing sooo fast that when I see already will be 30.

As they say, age is just a number. I'm not afraid of growing old. I believe that it's a part of our life. All i want to think is that, when you grow, you have learned more, loved more, understand life more, seek goodness more, matured more. So growing is not really a problem with me. I'm not afraid of gray hair, saggy skin, blurry eyes, or any signs of aging. All i have to do is enjoy my remaining days on earth and be glad with it.

This is a tough one. There are many good memories, yet there are also many sad ones. I think I will pass and let time move on. The best age to be is the future and not the past, most likely to be when I sigh my last on earth. Apologies.

For men, the best age to be is 21. You are too young to be an adult and at the same time too old to be a kid. You are at the point where you enjoy the best of both worlds.

when i was in my teens, that was the best part for every 'first times' and school was really was rock and roll, lol! in my 20's, when i started earning that was even more rockier and roller, lol! in my 30's, i started to mellow down and found the joys of having a family. in my 40's, i got more inspired as the children are growing up fast and now in my 50's, eager to see my first grandchild! either which way, going through life with it's ups and downs, one should have the effort to find time on what makes you feel good, happy and content... appreciate your life and just do what you need to do....

For me, all of the age levels are all good. I enjoy every stage of my life. I look forward to growing old with my husband , having grandchildren by our daughter and having a nice retirement days with my family and friends.

I always think that my early childhood was my favorite. You never had to worry about anything and didn't have any responsibilities. You weren't expected to do much so anything you did was like a miracle to older people. I miss those days.

I am closely moving to the middle ages and I sure want to freeze time. I am not a fan of getting old. I do try to keep myself healthy and active in order not to feel the effects of age. Right now is one of the happiest parts of my life, more than my youth because it is only now that I am free to do what I want with my life. I have spent half of my life working for a company where I didn't enjoy any free time because of the demands of the job. I don't have any restrictions and I am free to make my own decisions.

The younger you are the more energetic you are.The older one gets the more age related problems one develops.But with age comes experience and more money and other resources.I would prefer an age where i have sufficient resources at my disposal and am not too old to fulfill all my commitments.
