Guys,

I'm in a pretty good place in life (healthy, 40 yr old, great wife, love my job) and I was wanted to ask the senior members (i.e. age not number of posts), when was it best for you?

I'm slightly overweight but I'm passionate about cooking and I'm crazy about wine...that's my biggest issue right now. I appreciate it and know it wont always be that way. When where you most happy and why?

Thanks guys. Esa

Just be happy and don't waste a bunch of time and energy wondering why.

The whole thing could blow up in a heartbeat when you least expect it.

It was June 15, and in two days I would be turning thirty. I was insecure about entering a new decade of my life and feared that my best years were now behind me.

My daily routine included going to the gym for a workout before going to work. Every morning I would see my friend Nicholas at the gym. He was seventy-nine years old and in terrific shape. As I greeted Nicholas on this particular day, he noticed I wasn't full of my usual vitality and asked if there was anything wrong. I told him I was feeling anxious about turning thirty. I wondered how I would look back on my life once I reached Nicholas' age, so I asked him, "What was the best time of your life?"

Without hesitation, Nicholas replied, "Well, Joe, this is my philosophical answer to your philosophical question:

"When I was a child in Austria and everything was taken care of for me and I was nurtured by my parents, that was the best time of my life.

"When I was going to school and learning the things I know today, that was the best time of my life.

"When I got my first job and had responsibilities and got paid for my efforts, that was the best time of my life.

"When I met my wife and fell in love, that was the best time of my life.

"The Second World War came, and my wife and I had to flee Austria to save our lives. When we were together and safe on a ship bound for North America, that was the best time of my life.

"When we came to Canada and started a family, that was the best time of my life.

"When I was a young father, watching my children grow up, that was the best time of my life.

"And now, Joe, I am seventy-nine years old. I have my health, I feel good and I am in love with my wife just as I was when we first met. This is the best time of my life."

Turning 24 in a few days. 23 pretty much sucked in every imaginable way. 22 was a stellar year, though.

Sophomore year of high school. I had no responsibility and just enough freedom that I could dedicate myself to sedition and immaturity before it brought consequences.

The best time in life is when you wouldn't rather be anywhere else in the world at that very moment.

I'm sorry for boaning your ex last year. You're right though, she did have great boobs.

last year of high school was a great time. took a victory lap, went back to school just to play basketball but didnt have to for school. (in ontario we had gr 13 but they got rid of it and for a few years you could go back but didnt have to.) didnt care about school and only played basketball and hung out. i always look on the positive side and cant say anything is too bad.
