Well, I am 57 and next month will be 58.  I am for the most part just thankful for each day God allows me live and be with my family.  My mother just passed away about a month ago and I always thought she would live to be much older.  The experience has reminded me to try and be thankful for each day because I do believe each day to be a gift from God.  I don't like some of the appearances of aging lol or the health issues that sometimes come but none-the-less I am happy to be blessed to be 57!

At almost 50...my husband is 35. Daughters 10 and 7. I stay feeling young. Yeah there are aches and pains at times but I am so thankful to still be mistaken for 30 something...even without make up, and still able to enjoy fun activities just as though I am in my 20's or 30's. I am blessed and I thank God everyday. :)

@sdecaro558 I had to laugh. A few weeks ago my 10yr old and I were in a thrift store. She came across a rotary phone. She said "mom what's this?" I said "a phone hon." She asked "how does it work?" I had to laugh. It was such a precious moment between her and I. :)

I am 48 and, up until I broke my foot last September, was able to run 75 mile ultra-marathons better than anyone that was half my age.  Honest people have told me that I look 35 and act like a 16 year old.  I am a bit bummed, right now, because I haven't fully recovered from the broken foot...yet.  I am walking with a limp and not able to keep up with my children on hikes...but I'll catch up.  I have started cross training and hope to be back in shape in eight weeks.  Without the excercise my mental accuity has diminished somewhat as well.

Even though I am getting older, I am pleased with where I am in my life.  I love my family, enjoy my grandkids, and have a close relationship with the Lord.  I greet each new day with thanksgiving in my heart.  :)

 I am 73 and feel really good about it.  I'm thankful to God for each day he gives me.  I try to walk about 2 miles 5 days a week.

I'm 56 and sometimes feel a lot older. Most days I feel fine with my age, I wouldn't want to go back and do it again.  I just wish somethings would have been done in a different way.

I am 51 years old. I really aged the last couple years due to illness. I really do not like being older.

I was over 70 when I made the tutorial videos for Fusioncash. Life is what you make of it.

Well, like my dads says, you are as young as you feel.  I feel good so much so I never go to the doctor until I am sick, so I have a Doctor's appt. next week just to get a physical to make sure everything is everything.  If I am lucky (blessed) I will be like my dad and live until I am 90 or older and still drive, play golf and just enjoy life. (My dad is 90 and going strong) :wave:

I will be 74 in September (if the Good Lords wills it).  I love life even with the aches and pains, but I still have my volunteer work and my women's choir.  Like they say, you're only as old as you feel.  Somedays I feel really old, but others I feel like a teenager!

I'm 60 and my life has been productive and I'm happy with my age. I wouldn't want to go back and live my younger years for nothing. there are so many things I have yet to do and experience, and age will not stop me. We all have some health issues when we get older, but if you eat right and exercise enough then you can limit those issues. When you start thinking you are old is when you actually are. A number is just that......a number. Those of you on here that are 70+ are inspirational to me. The trick is to look forward with a positive and thankful heart. Not look back with regret and disappointment. You can't change the past, but you can make "sure" the future.

I thank God that He has allowed me to do and see things in my life that would not have happened without Him, and it just keeps getting better. Life is a gift even with it's down (learning) times. I'm happy to know that after this life, I get another one that lasts forever with no aches, pains, or aging....now that will really be living!!!
