Certainly it would be nice to be younger. Not twenty-something-and-still-stupid young, but being transported back to my thirties might be nice. The thirties...years when my metabolism was still alive and breathing...
However, being the age I am (I tell my students I'm in my 70's and they believe me; that either indicates how trusting they are, or it indicates what I truly look like), I now am more aware of what is important and what is not. I'm more comfortable with myself and have accepted what I have morphed into over the years.
I just read Tammy Goodsell's blog on the advantages of old age. Some will make you chuckle (as you nod uh-huh) and some will make you become introspective. Check out her post from Thursday, November 18.
And how about sharing (with her or me or, preferably, both) what is the #1 advantage to growing older, in your opinion?
