I'm only 43 and I would say I am happy as I am and looking ahead. But looking back here's what I remember 6 years old to 12 years - Fun fun fun playing with friends 13-16 - Alienated from friends, cast out, pressured to be top 1 in class 17-22 - Freedom! One of the best years of my life. University is intellectually stimulating. Got a cool peer group and professors. 23-39 - Local travels with partner, daughter, family and officemates. Constant unhappiness due to regret and feeling like a failure comparing myself to others. 40-42 - Came across minimalism and financial independence retire early. . Finding myself. New mindset making me feel empowered. Relationship on an a downward spiral. I will be 43 this September. Life is good. I hope God bless us with good long life.

Interesting question, but I think I would like to go back in my childhood years since I feel like I was too stiff and never really enjoyed my childhood since I was too shy/afraid of everything. I would like to change that part of me and should have learned to be more child-like back then playful, carefree, and not worrying about anything.
