Today's your lucky day. I'm going to be 49 tomorrow, the 19th, and from this point of view, you never have to change who you are.
I like all the same things I liked when I was twenty. I don't think core personalities change with a number. Write the number "40" on a piece of
paper, and toss it away. No, wait, scratch that- forty is hell of great year. That's when all the stuff you always dreamed about becomes accessible.
I have ALL the candy. I worked hard for it, and I'm going to enjoy it.
You're going to be the same person at forty,fifty, sixty, as you are now, only, you're going to have all the candy.
The Mrs and I hang with my nieces and nephew, they come over to the house and we have a great time, we go to amusement parks, concerts. Life is more
so. Think of those old guys on Harley's going down the pike.
Nothing ages a person so much as a closed mind, and it seems to me you don't have one.
Don't squinch your face, though- everyone looks old with a squinchy face.
Edited to add, I'm reading posts where people look at young people and see them as children. Yes, there is an age where people under a certain age
look half-baked, underdone, raw. Not enough character showing in their smooth faces, like bread dough.
