I thought as we get older we are meant to slow down and ease into old age. I was always scared of aging. I'm 54 and busier than I've ever been. I live alone in the little place I bought a couple of years back after my divorce and have spent most weekends working on the house or in the yard. Work is still very busy and my two grown up kids still give me reason for worry most of the time. Ive just started restoring another old holden to sit along side "Betsy" and I am also doing a bit of backyard bodywork to help pay for the house renos and car resto. I find myself in bed most nights by 9:00 and asleep by 9:01 I am doing what I enjoy but am also starting to feel all 54 years. Still haven't had my Knees replacements done and not sure I can go much longer before they will become a priority. My back will never be good but isn't stopping me do what I want to and in general my health seems ok now. Looking forward I cant see myself slowing down intentionally, but as I get older I guess the body will start dictating what I will and wont be able to do. I enjoy life, drink too much, carrying 15 kilos too many, but basically getting older isn't as daunting as I once thought.
