Growing old is mandatory; growing up is optional.
~Chili Davis

Your ideal age? How old are you today? How old do you feel?


  • That is such a great quote! I am only 37 which feels good. However they say life begins at 40 so I may like that age better and may want to stay that age as I grow old! ~Val

  • Ok. 45, physically I have days where I feel 100 but in every other way I feel much younger! What age do I wish I was – 40 again! That year totally rocked!

  • 51…. Probably 30 would be the ideal and actually, in my mind I’m about 30 :))) But don’t worry, I am horrified of being one of those women who are 75 and dresses like 30!! :0 so I’m a bit conservative to err on the side of caution but free and frivolous enough to enjoy myself and my ‘sparklies!!’ :)))

  • Ooh, and to that I MUST add that yesterday, Jes had a dr. appt. which we always turn into a trip to the nearby upscale mall. Walking through Nordstrom, I wanted to take a picture of a tall, 75+ woman with bootie stacked HIGH heels, tight shorts and a glittery tank top. Jes wouldn’t let me take a picture with my phone. Shoot. ๐Ÿ™‚ Wonder how old she was feeling? (okay, wash my mouth out with soap)

  • Well, considering it’s my day off, I’m still in my PJ’s, and I’m reading this post still curled up in bed…well, I feel…not 21, that’s for sure. Lol. Or, maybe that’s exactly how old I feel… haha.

  • Today I feel like 80! I Lampworked 4 and 1/2 hours yesterday, then went swimming for an hour. Im so tired today! I feel like Im 26! Hey why not? LOL

  • I am 37 and I feel like I am ready for my 40’s…maybe I’ll gain more wisdom? It seems I’ve been through the wringer in the past years, learning of course as I go, I’ve had all my babies so that’s over, raising a teen and 2 pre-teens, so I feel I am ready for the next step..the next journey….I feel calmer as I approach my 40’s. Is that normal?? But I feel young, and think young, so hopefully that will always stay with me! Great quote! xo

  • Okay, let’s see….best age – early 30s. Actual age – 41. Feel like – uhm, 41 ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Love that photo! Such exuberance ๐Ÿ˜‰

  • Ok, I don’t have an ideal age ~ to me it is just a number and one I usually forget (not by choice, I just don’t pay attention). I’m 34 (I just did the math). I know I have a long way to go, but I think that you can find joy and contentment at any age ๐Ÿ™‚ Each day brings a new challenge, opportunity to learn and happiness.

  • I am actually 43. My physically demanding job makes me feel much, much older. Inwardly though, I feel much, much younger.
    I loved 30, would love to look and feel how I did then!

  • I’m 45… but I feel like I’m 25 (most days not all). I wish I was 30. I can still do a cartwheel but the best years were that of those girls in the photo!! Happy and carefree!!!
