I am 31. I have lots of stretch marks, gray hair popping up everywhere, lots of "laugh lines", sagging etc. Nothing to freak out over. I know it's only goin to get worse but I am not worried. I know... It is just Because I am young but really I earned every stretch mark, grey hair and wrinkle and will continue to earn them.

Plus I know where I am going when I die, just not in a hurry to get there. I am not afraid of getting older.

I've been telling people for a few years now that I'm hoping for an early death. I can't afford a long life. =P

Being old would be cool if I aged healthy. Working in a nursing home scared the crap out of me, but then a lot of people stay independent and active as they age and never go into a home.

I've got a good streak of white going in my hair so far. When I'm old and it's all white I'm going to leave it really long and not do one of those old lady poodle hair cuts with the radioactive carrot orange dye job.

My goal is that my 50 year old self be able to kick my 20 year old self's butt. So far so good. I was really sickly back then, and my near-30 year old self could definitely take past-me.

Belgians would always warn you that they were there.

Filas would just suddenly BE there without any warning And they carry grudges and NEVER forget.

Romy, I kicked my daughter's ass in a swimming race a couple months back. We've both been competitive swimmers. So, she was here one time and we went to the Y, swam and decided to have a couple races. It wasn't easy, but I beat her. She's 32. I'm close to 58. LOL.

Longevity runs in my family. My Dad was 92 when he died. My Mom's parents lived well into their 90's. My mom is 90 now and quite healthy, in spite of a mild stroke a while back. She's slightly confused sometimes, but certainly not to the point of non-functioning. She lives in a 3000 sq ft house, gets a little help but still cooks her meals, cleans the dishes and minor house chores. She's a bit frail but gets around okay. She's happy and gets a kick out of life, I think.

So, as long as no horrible, debilitating health issues come along, I'd go for a long life. There's a lot to see and experience yet. But I'll take whatever comes my way, hopefully gracefully.

My biggest concern is having my ducks in a row, my finances in order, and being able to leave my kids with an easier time financially. AND leaving my kids with the peace of knowing I was at peace and happy in our relationship, to have good memories to keep them going.
