Do you ever feel like life is going so fast and that you cannot keep up?  I have four kids and it seems that I just cannot keep up the pace I used to.  I don't feel old but I wonder if my body is trying to tell me something.  I am not happy with getting older, do any of you ever wish that you could go back even ten years ago?

I am aging gracefully and enjoying life as it flows.

I sometimes I wish I started some things earlier in my life. But generally, I am happy where I am.

Would give most anything to go back 10 years. Things would be different.

I don't want to go back.  I'm comfortable with the choices I made along the way.  Now some of the choices, I wish I had made SOONER, but basically I'm happy right now.  Fitter than I've been in years thanks to choices I've made recently.  Glad that my girls are happy and healthy and coming close to the end of their education (unless one of them decides to emulate their Dad and go for the PhD in which case they will be around for a while yet).  I may be turning 50 this year, but I have a whole lot of LIFE to look forward to.

 Of course I wish I could go back...but since I know that can't happen I try to do the best I can each day. I'm not a stationary person and always on the go. Someone once asked if I was afraid to stop...because it would mean that I would have to give in to what my body is trying to tell me....that I'm getting older. I agreed it could be part of it, but just sitting down and wasting precious time isn't for me either.
