This morning I read an interesting newspaper article. In it scientists claim that their research indicates that the happiest period of our lives is between the ages of fifty and fifty-three.
Not sure sure that I believe this, but just in case, I guess I will have to live it up now while I can.
Assuming that the average age is eighty-years old, that's less than four percent of your total time on the planet. The window of opportunity is now my friends.
Might as well maximize one's potential for happiness, that three year sliver of time is too short and too precious.
(I still remember when I was about ten years old calculating how old I would be at the turn of the century: forty-two years old, that's sure hard to believe)
