    I don't wish to be any other age than I am now 51. I took a few bumps and had a few mistakes but , to wish to do them over would not be my idea of a good time.

    I would like to see some of the women I had when I was young, ask them if they would do it over again..LOL

    But, I am happily married, with (3) grandkids and wouldn't trade any of this to go back to my child hood.

    Same here, I'm happy at 50 and prefer to look for the future and what it brings instead of looking back at what could have been.

    If I only knew then what I know now, is the mantra of the ages. I remember people saying this ever since I was a young boy. When you are young this has no meaning. As you grow older you begin to understand.

    Our experiences over time are what make us who we are. We can’t alter the past, but we can alter the future. If you are not happy with who you are today, then change who you will be tomorrow. The problem with always looking back, is you can’t see where you are going.

    I am 48 my life has not been perfect, but it is my life. It is a life I have enjoyed very much.

    Yeah I kinda of look at it that way too. I have been raising kids since I was 25 years old. For 35 years. My last one is still living here with us while he finishes college.(23yo)

    If I was young again I would probably still make the same stupid mistakes. My kids make the same stupid mistakes as I did so it only stands to reason.

    Everyone said that it is the most advantageous to take SS at age 62. So that is my target date in 2 more years.

    physically, mentally and financially was best

    but I wouldn't want to go thru the b.s. I went thru, to get back there.

    54's not too bad but the memory loss and eyesite etc forget it.

    I always say to the young guys "Don't Get Old"heh heh
