growing up

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

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

Posted in Thoughts.


  1. 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

  2. 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!

  3. 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!!’ :)))

  4. 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. 🙂 Wonder how old she was feeling? (okay, wash my mouth out with soap)

  5. 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.

  6. 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

  7. 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

  8. Okay, let’s see….best age – early 30s. Actual age – 41. Feel like – uhm, 41 😉

    Love that photo! Such exuberance 😉

  9. 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 🙂 Each day brings a new challenge, opportunity to learn and happiness.

  10. 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!

  11. 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!!!
