I don't know how to explain this--but I am a sort that embraces the obverse--and I LIKE turning forty.
I like the biblical symbolism of it--I like the rituals I am wittingly or unwittingly participating in...I do enjoy the fact that it did INDEED stop raining for my b'day. Perversely? I like it ALL. I like the way the gray has grown into my hair---highlights of tinsel to swoop and curl around my face---sue me--I LIKE it.

I don't mind the tiny lines and wrinkles. And the big ones? Hey...I don't have to look...and yet at the same time, don't ask me to erase a memory to please a line of your palette. Don't ask me to overwash the opaque, or dwell too long in a charcoal's shadow. Don't tell me that beauty is a coveted dream of anorexia--and that clothes should hang on a woman with the same finesse as a wire hanger. Don't tell me happiness is found in the hand-carved ivory bowl of a pipe. Well...don't ask me for a light, not right now, anyway.

So many variables of life--why even now attempt to choose? How many sums reduce to PI? (forgive me, I left school too soon...)

see? I am thinking in rhyme.

Serenity, this is how I want to feel about life and getting older. I haven't quite made it. You are a hell of a role model  
Bet you never thought that, hm?
PS, How do you feel about 47  LOL

I am only twentyfour but the other day I had my hair cut and the stylist had cut my hair in such a way to cover my receeding hairline.  I thought that it is kind of vain to try to cover up what God has given me.  I relish in the fact that I will one day go gray and have those wrinkles beside my eyes like my father and grandfather.  If I lose my my hair well so be it.  Beauty will always shine through from the inside to the outside.  So the way I see it I will and do enjoy growing older.

If life is just a game, when does it end cause I want to get to what is real.

I am only 18.....I have no idea what you're talking about, but I do know that when I am 40 I will be able to say " much done and so much more to do!"
I plan on living it up and being happy with whatever.....especially my looks

I'm 16!  

But I hope that I can have the energy and joy you have when I'm your age... heck, I wish I had it now!!!

I hope I'm optimistic like that in 25 years when I hit 40.  That's great that you have such a good attitude about it   Not many people have that mind frame.  It's admirable.


You think yourself a failure, but perhaps the biggest loss is winning...
