    Older On The Outside.

    Ok, I admit it, I'm getting older.. physically. Not that you would actually guess it really, except a little extra padding around the middle which I'm working on. I have good hair genetics and when I have a haircut there are very few grey hairs visible even on the temples of my...

    I Know

    Especially since I had such a miserable childhood and growing up for me was the pits. Also, there are so many things I always wanted to do when I was younger, but now it's too late because of my age. I wish there was such a thing as the fountain of youth.

    32

    I guess a lot of people on here are going to think that I'm still too young to complain, because a lot of people on here are in their 40's, 50's, and beyond; however, if we can all remember, things can start to change in our early 30's. I will be turning 32 in five months. The...

    I'm fifteen, and I'm just scared to death of my life slipping away from me. I haven't done anything remotely important and if I died today, I would have  no lasting effect on the world. As I get older, I know that this mindset will just stay with me until whenever I do die...

    My son, not quite 13, and I share a lot at his bedtime every night. Before he goes to sleep, we lie together in the dark and sometimes he tells me about his dreams and aspirations, sometimes about issues he's dealing with, sometimes he asks questions about stuff, sometimes I just...

    43 is a difficult age for me and probably for all women. Yes, we CAN have more children but we probably will not. You begin to look at your children and feel sadness that you will not be able to see another day one of a precious life. Of course I love my children, but I miss...
