I gather none of us really knew what to expect at this stage of life.
Why didn't someone tell me you remain pretty much the same person on the inside with a touch more wisdom and character? Maybe someone did try to tell me but I didn't get it.
I think we all feel younger than we presume our parents did at our age. But maybe they had more going on than I knew. (Think of the things your kids don't know about you.)
As I read other's profiles, I am struck by the commonality of having hope. Even though we are different, apparently we believe in the notion "there is someone right for everyone."
I can say that my life is good. But, obviously, I wouldn't be here if I didn't believe it could be more enjoyable and meaningful with someone to share its ups and downs.
