Yes. This is my list, too, Rosaria! You have to live long enough to see all this!! And we're there. In some ways it's better now than earlier, except for the step by step deteriorating body.

But, what a beautiful photograph which says to me, there is beauty at the end. Brilliant colors. The peace of having lived a good, long life (if one is so fortunate).

Have a wonderful Sabbath!!!

We always tell teenagers to enjoy that time of their life..it's the best..blah,blah,blah..we know it's a lie. But what I would love to impart is to enjoy those 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 41/2, decades because they really are the best of your life. It's amazing how differently everyone ages. When people come to surgery I always look at ages and how some look so good, some have not taken care of that bod at all and look 10yrs older. But attitude is what helps in aging. No matter how bad you may feel, there is always someone worse off. Thanks for a great post!

Hi Rosaria
LOL
Loved this and I am forced to admit I am on Decade 6 which is true but also Number 8 has struck due to me having worn out a hip and having a replacement a year ago. NBo way shall I make Decade 9 or 10 - not sure if I would want to.
It is all very true and sum it up, life is very difficult, particularly for the nice people have you noticed? The rotters seem to have a much easier ride - for now.
A belated congratulations on BON award. Several friends have been awarded recently, including you, Grumpy Old Ken and Moannie. It is remarkable how the initial surge of comments and followers occurs. Ken was launched into outer space LOL.

Ah I think I'm stuck on the first, but have witnessed the tenth!

Trish and Rob MacGregor said...

Love your list!

ellen abbott said...

hard to top that.

Amanda said...

love your list --- if only we came with instruction manuals that made it clear to maximize that fun rule for the first ten years, as i don't see it listed in any of the subsequent decades! (hehe ;-)

Moannie said...

I think my list would replicate yours, Rosaria...Now I'm at the Wow! I'm alive stage...say it every morning when I wake.

erin said...

This is great fun. I love the optimism of the nineties! Ha! Look all I have to look forward to! Yipppeeee!

While it is the "circle of life," as Eva noted, I like your list more than I like Shakespeare's stages of humanity.

Entering number 8. Looks good and, as yet, nothing to change. 1 to 3 were rough going, but since then, 4 to 8 were rather enjoyable.
Considering my family history, should see 8 and 9 and come quite close to 10 all in one piece.

Beautiful picture!
Interesting list!

Made me think,

Marilynne said...

I love your list. I'm not sure how I'd structure mine. I'd have to think about it.

dianefaith said...

I like your list, but I would add:

Fifth decade -- think hard about what you love and what you want to do in these next years. Choose something that will inspire through all the older years. Begin.

Sixth decade -- Do what you want to do, inasmuch as you can. If it has to be in a limited way, so be it. Just do it! Set the pattern and continue it from now on.

Robyn said...

this is funny to me!
I like it and might even have a go at making one myself.

dianefaith said...

What I said above was too long and now bores me :-)
Trying again:

5th decade -- think about what you want to do now that the kids are going (maybe)

6th decade -- do it!

Well i enjoy reding your blog The advice you give comes straight from your heart

Hilary said...

Sounds about right! Love that photo.. so lovely.

A Cuban In London said...

Love your list. Well, I'm about to start my fourth decade, so I will heed you advice about balancing family life with work. :-)

Greetings from London.

with ever intention of outliving all other human beings on the planet any list I would make would be extremely long and I just ain't that clever.

good list..

Arkansas Patti said...

I'm in the 7th and can so relate. Some how if we live long enough, I haven't yet, but we start in diapers and end up in diapers eating baby food. Full circle.

Gaston Studio said...

I'm approaching the 7th and can relate as well. Love your list, everything that was, is again!

becky said...

I'll just keep walking through each decade until my feet say, "no more!"

Ruth said...

I love the ninth, Rosaria!

LindyLouMac said...

Love the list could not improve on it. you might have to add a decade we went to a Birthday celebration of a 103 year old not long ago!

Hilary Melton-Butcher said...

Hi Rosaria .. would love to reach 90+ with my brain intact and my body as near as ok .. we'll have to see what happens .. in the meantime I shall dream on positively to those days ..

Each decade (& all the time) - I'd say don't waste a minute .. go talk to your older relatives and parents - spend precious time with them ..

Keep going to everyone! Cheers Hilary

Marguerite said...

Great list! I'm in my fifth, and I'm having the best time of my life! It just keeps getting better and better!

Wew skipped some of the stuff in the middle from 20-40, especially since we had no kids, but the rest pretty much mirrors us, too.

Even w/o kids some of worries are the same but maybe no as critical.

But love in some ways which also changes over the same period of time binds it all together.

1 Delicious total dependence satisfied. 2 lots of play and a few remembered tears. 3 longing for the holidays towards the end of term and looking forward to school towards the end of the holidays. 4 Halcyon, if callow youth. 5 Many girlfriends, ups and downs, enjoying a creative and lucrative career. 6 Years of children meegre finances, great happiness and some distress. 7 Realisation of what could not be done, of personal limitations and liabilities accompanying joys of family life. 8 More family life and satisfaction in a new and quite arduous, but very well paid occupation. 9 Looking to the future with not much time left. Expecting to be as dead as a doornail when I lose consciousness for the last time. 10 A replete life often lived "to the hilt".
