Reflections about this day

Today is my birthday I am 45 years old. I am offically middle aged. LOL. Does that mean I have lived half my life? Is everything downhill from now? Or is the best years still to come?

The female members of my family have all lived to be in their nineties with the exception of my Mama who lived until she was 86 and my Aunt that died in childbirth back in 1920. Does that mean I will live that long? No chance of me dying in childbirth seeing how I can no longer have children. But will the world still be here in 2069 when I turn 90? Just think 2069. Sci-fi books were based in those years, will they come true? What will life be like then? Do I even want to be here then? Will I still be able to go outside and see blue skys and stars at night? Will I be alone?


  1. Happy birthday to you. no life is not down hill from here. I am 52 and having a good life. I also wonder what will the world be like in years to come. It is getting so bad now it may be awful. Sounds like you have a full life, so just keep on enjoying it. I was older than you when I remarried. It was like staring all over. Glad that I did it. have a great birthday.

  2. HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!  Hope you have a wonderful day.

  3. Happy Birthday!!!  The women in my family all are long lived too.  I'm 47 and expect to keep going for a good long while.  It won't be downhill from here if you don't let it.  I have felt though that the last few years have been full of soul searching questions.  Sometimes I think you have to face some hard facts to make the best of the 2nd half of your life.  That's something I'm struggling with now.

  4. HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!! no your life is not down hill-lol- it's just begining. I don't consider 45 old. When you need to sit on a phone book to see over the steering wheel of the car......THEN your old......or just really really short. : )
