Since I turned 63 I’ve been reflecting on my life and in general I would say that my first 60 years was a Bumpy Ride. What about yours ... so far?

Very bumpy. But I’m working on changing my outlook and attitude. I’ll be 69 the Fourth of July

Smooth sailing. There have always been a couple bad years for every decade I've lived, but overall, not terrible. I'm healthy, financially stable and happy. I also wake up every day knowing that I could end up lonely, broke or unhealthy in no time.

It's been pretty easy so far.

But I'm halfway through college and the debt will start piling up. I've applied for a bunch of summer jobs, but haven't gotten anything. I'll see what happens from here on out.

Bumpy enough so that it feels unusual when it's smooth.

I'm the same age. It’s been pretty great so far, and still gets better every year. I imagine there will be a peak at some point, hopefully followed by a a gentle grade back down and not a cliff.

I’ve had my highs and my lows. I’m making the best of it.

Smooth until I finished college, then rough.

Minor turbulance throughout, but on the whole, I've been lucky. Found a decent job, married the right woman, spawned a good crop of kids, and thanks to my parents, I've never suffered from deprivation or a lack of support.

Yeah, me too. It's easy to sweat the small stuff when that's all you've ever known.
