Fill In The Blank


37

Old enough to have good credit, be taken seriously as an adult, have reached some great milestones and have outgrown youthful naïveté.  Young enough to have an abundance of energy and a metabolism that still works. Plus, it's the age I met the most amazing man in the world. The icing on the cake!

How about you?

  1. I love the reasons why you'd like to be 37 forever :) Sounds like the perfect mixture to me.
    I think I'd pick 30 - that was a turning point for me from feeling like not knowing who I am to finding myself and feeling confident in my journey.

    Have a wonderful day, Martha.
    Lots of love and hugs to you,
    Beate

    1. Maybe every year will be the perfect year, Christine. For some, that's the way it is!

  3. Not sure what age I would want to remain, but I do know I wouldn't want to be in my teens again! -Jenn

  6. I'd say 40. I felt good, didn't have Fibromyalgia back then and my career was really taking off. I was making great money finally and my family life was so good then as my husband was still alive and healthy.

  7. Like a couple others, I'm not sure yet--haven't lived through enough "ages" to be sure. I know I like the age I am now, and it's going by too quickly!

    1. You are so young, Bethany, and there'll be many, many more years to look forward to. And so many experiences to come your way. Perhaps every year will be the perfect year. Or maybe something will happen in your life that will be a turning point. You just never know...

  8. Mid forties. That's when I found myself. Life became less stressful.

    1. The 40s is a very interesting period for everyone. I'm glad it was good for you. I loved my 40s. I'd do it all over again!

  9. 32 :) I loved how I looked at the time, had the energy I needed to get through the day, etc.

    1. That is also a good age, Betty. Everything still works so well! LOL...

  10. I'd say either 30 or 35 for similar reasons.

  11. I've always thought 26 was a good age. Not that my life was any better (or worse) then, just based on being an adult but still youthful. I did not have my husband or children yet then so if I have to take that into consideration it would be a different answer. I wouldn't want to be stuck at any age if it meant just living the same year over and over! But my 26-year-old healthy body with a life that kept progressing? Yes, definitely.

    1. That is your magic number. I think most of us remember a special period in our lives.

  12. Great reasons for staying 37. I think if it were possible, I would remain 50 forever. At 50 you have experience and wisdom, you don't care what other people think of you, you own yourself. Your body is still firm and strong and flexible. If I could do it again, I would have retired at 50. (Though, I do remember being pretty hot at 39, I don't think I had the wisdom to really know who I was. I guess I'm a slow learner!)

    1. I have to agree with about 50, especially the past of not caring what other people think of you. That is so true!

  13. Good question, Martha! Let me see.....I would have to say 25. That was the age I had hope for the planet and was full of energy and wanderlust. Nothing could stop me.

    1. Oh, that's a good answer, Jim! Yes, I remember feeling the same at that age.
