Has aging been difficult for you emotionally (i.e. difficult to accept or grieving the loss of youthfulness) or has the transition happened in a way that you were able to adjust to without much fuss? If you're still young, are you afraid of aging?

The rewards of aging are terrific. Retired, free time, family and now a great-grandson and another due in 6 weeks. Joy of my life is my family. Just wish my late husband was here to enjoy this with me.

Turning 40 was very hard for me on a number of levels.

I think 40 is hard for a lot of people but it is especially hard on women I think.

I have found the process fascinating. I am 66 and am amazed at the changes.

I agree. I think that it was scarier in my 20's to think of what life would bring. But as I have aged I have realized that there is less in life to be scared of and more to enjoy.

Things have a way of working themselves out, life is good to most of us most of the time and life after 50 is WAY better than life before.

Take a breath, enjoy life, don't worry it'll all be ok and watch with joy what happens when the kids grow up and you have time to play and the maturity and knowledge to know how and where to do it.

I still look the same as l did 20 years ago. Obviously I have a few gray hairs but my weight and hair is still the same. People I went to high school with would recognize me if they haven't seen me since then. It's funny how you reach that age when you start looking like your dad though...
