My 50's were the best! Great age I thought.
I've noticed alot of 80 year olds seem really happy. I think at that advanced age you just live for each day, relax and don't let anything get to you anymore.

I wish I could do that! That is a wonderful skill to have.

I can see the point they make: you gain acceptance, among other things.
Life is short why get all pissed off.

My teens were horrible. 20s were better, but still could not be called happy overall. i am 30 and it's looking better than my 20s already.

The truth is, I am not really cut out for w*rking (hence on this forum). So my mood changes depending on whether I am in the cycle of vacation, post-vacation blues, depressed state, planning for next vacation, etc. I feel much better now that we have an ER plan. Never liked the idea of a 40-year w*rk tunnel!
