I feel sad when I remember those times. My youth, the university; when I saw life through rose coloured spectacles* :) ) . The time when I had my children, watching them grow up.
That is life: our children are borrowed, and they flew the nest* to live their own lives. Now I have six grandchildren, they are my happiness, but they live too far away from me.
Our life changes so fast, I know this is life and now I must find other things, like my English classes, help other people who need my company and to take time for myself, it has not been easy. Every day I give thanks to God for my family, for our health and I know that life is to live and to leave plenty behind us when we die*. (* Is this what you mean, Otavia?.)
*This is what we say when we look back on happy memories - we look 'through rose coloured specacles..'
* when our children leave home to live their own life, we say they 'flew the nest'
This is a very nice, thoughtful contribution, Octavia. It is something that every mother will nod their head and agree with you.
It is true, life goes by so fast, and eaxch stage has its own benefits and struggles!
Thank you Octavia!

My best age is now because I have a husband, my own apartment and my work. It's a pity that our years don't make us look younger.(I means our face, not our soul). :) I like my age, and I think that it's the best time for me. On the 5th of August it is my birthday, it will be my 30th birthday. A lot of people think that is the age, but I don't feel like a woman, I'm a very young woman;) I am young and energetic!
Of course you are a young woman, Heyylen! Thirty is a lovely age. You have left the silliness of youth behind, but are still young enough to have a youthful energy whilst being more mature!
Can you imagine being thirty years older????
Noooo! don't even think about it! :);)
Your age is the ideal age. Good luck and happiness to you!
Hello June :)
I must say that every age of life is very important for a person. Because, we have chance to learn the amazing facts and knowledge by using which we can derive a lot of benefits. When I was a student of Intermediate level, my teacher used to tell this quote to us, quite often in our class "TILL WE DIE WE ARE LEARNERS". Indeed, it is true, life is the best teacher and it teaches us many things in different phases of our lives. In the childhood, we learn from our parents what is good and what is bad, in the teenage we learn DOs and DON'Ts, in the youth we learn how to shape our lives for good, in the middle age we learn how to guide the young people and in the old age we learn how to prepare ourselves to reach the abode of god.
Hello Ramana! :)

Indeed it is true, life is the best teacher and it teaches us many things in different phases of our lives.
In childhood we learn from our parents what is good and what is bad; in the teenage years we learn 'do's' and 'don'ts'; in our youth we learn how to shape our lives for the good; in middle age we learn how to guide young people and in our old age we learn how to prepare ourselves to reach the abode of God.
This is very good Ramana. It is very wise and a good pattern of life to follow.
Do you find that as the pace of life quickens and we all move forward, that the young people rebel against what their parents try to teach them ? Sometimes it seems as if morals and behaviour seem to deteriorate as life becomes more 'modern' and progressive.
Thank you for your contribution Ramana - thoughtful as ever!
How are you getting on?
I think that all ages are best to be because in all ages a human has his own, belonged only to him and chosen only by himself life, but... The but means that these ages are beautiful mostly when a human healthy, cheerful (not moody), wealthy and so on (I can enumerate many values of life but, I think, all of us know it, I don't want to bore you with this enumeration:))).
If consider particularly I think that the most beautiful period of life is the time between 25 up to 45 years. I'll explain why I think so.
When a person is young (it means when he is child, teenager and in his early youth), he has no enough experience in chosing the right way of life, in behaving himself correctly, even if he has relatives who can help him, but who knows that these relatives are right and the person will listen to their advise - noone.
By 25 years old a luckily human has some life experience (he has finished a school, graduated from college or university, some people even managed to have some work experience), the character of a person is already formed till 25(more or less) and he almost can make his own desicion. It continues up to 45 - 50 years old - I mean the success in the life. Beginning from pointed age (50) a person is starting to have problems : mostly health problems, sometimes children's problems with their education or marriage etc. (more or less almost everyone face some problems during the life; in the youth you have helpers (relatives, at least parents, who do everything for yourself), but after some age you have to be responsible for many things).
Again I'd like accent that this is my opinion, it can be not right completelly, but I just give (show) the common situations.
Of course, the life is very difficult and can give smb (anybody:) a surprise but we have to be optimistic and wait for the best from life ... And beleive me - the life will present you good things... At last I'd like to add that the important thing is not to live a life - the most important thing is how to live the life!
God bless everyone!!!
I was only thinking of you the other day (and feeling guilty because I am sure I owe you a message! ) I am fine and I hope you are too! :)
I think that all ages are the best that they can be because in every age a human has his own life, belonging only to him and chosen only by himself, but.... the but means that these ages are beautiful mostly when a human is healthy and cheerful (not moody) wealthy and so on.

When a person is young, (this means when he is a child, a teenager and so on) he has not enough experience of life in choosing the right way of life, in behaving correctly even if he has relatives who can help him; but who knows when the relatives are right if the person will listen to their advice - none.
By 25 years old, luckily, a human has some life experience ( he has finished school, graduated from college or university, some people even manage to have some work experience), the character of a person is already formed by 25 (more or less) and he can almost make his own decisions. It continues up to 45 - to 50 years old - I mean the success in life. Beginning from the mentioned? age 50, a person is starting to have problems: mostly health problems, sometimes children's problems with their education or marriage etc..
Again, I'd like to stress that this is my opinion, it may be right, but I just give the common situation. Of course, life is very difficult and can give anyone a nasty surprise, but we have to be optimistic and wait for the best from life, and believe me, life will present you with good things. God bless everyone!!
Thank you for this contribution, Fakhriya.
A great deal of thought has gone into this - and you are right in so many parts - for instance, about when do the young ever listen to advice from their elders!! :)
It may be considered the prime of life between 25 and 45 years old when we are, hopefully, at our optimum in health, job success and successfully rearing a family, for those who follow the process of growing, maturing and marrying.
It may be that we often wear the rosecoloured spectacles when looking back in life. :)
Personally, I think a little bit of nostalgia does us good once in a while. :)
Thank you again, Fakhriya!
Thank you for your comment. Of course, you owe me nothing. I know how busy you are helping us and highly appreciate your efforts!
If it's not so difficult for you could you reread the last part of my post (I have made some changings; it is concerned the last paragraph (It can be right...) - I suspected that something is wrong in my sentence and found out that it's really so - I should write It can be not right ... and so on :)))
Thank you again.
Take care of yourself!
