I am quite convinced that I don't want to live to be anything near 80 years of age. A psychic friend of mine recently saw (and told me) that I will live well into my 80s. I wasn't impressed. With this in mind I want to ask others how they feel. In my case I know my health will possibly suck by then, this is my greatest concern. So do you want to live to be quite old? Would either good health or bad change how you feel about this?

I think you are right Sanjay... it's a great thought to want to stick around long enough to add good times within the lives of others. That said, I suppose our loved ones know we have to go sooner or later.
No, actually I am not really young; I am in my fifties. But already I can say that my health has caused me significant obstacles in leading the type of life I wish to lead.
Thanks for an insightful answer Walter. It made me smile.
Yeah, without good health it seems that a person is just sitting around letting life happen to them. That's the part I don't like.
Sending you a blessing of many happy years with your grandchildren, and another good 40 'trips around the sun'!
You sound like an Indigo! Lol... good for you.
My belief is that my spirit and my earthly life are one and the same.
But, I think what is important to most of us is what makes us happy; that reason to live. If a reason exists, we want to continue.
You write your spirit. I want to read it!
That's a great idea, thanks RealityTalk! I will write about spirit life. It's on my list of 'to writes' now.
KenDeanAgudo, you can say that again 5 minutes before you go on board... and remember what I ask you to do, i.e. say that again. LOL.
I agree with WalterPoon;
Maybe it seems like living beyond having attained all of your goals is boring or lacking in significance... but maybe again you could build a new set of dreams - who knows?
QUOTE: "As far as how much i want to live, my initial goal was 120 but now with all new technological innovations in the anti-aging field- i aim for 150 and beyond"
That's real cool. Sounds like music to my ears. I'd be happy if I can live to 90.
I am seeing a lot of great responses being added. It is surprising how differently people look at this. Thanks to all taking the the time to comment.
in response to Alex-Zander, I have worked extensively on my health. I have recovered about 50%.
Our body is capable to restore its functions by replacing damaged cells with new and healthy. For example, cells of a heart muscle live 5 years, meaning that every 5 years you have a new heart. What you do these 5 years will account for new heart
I like the peaceful matter-of-fact overtone of your answer edhan. Thanks for your opinion.
