Do you want to live to be really old? Or would you prefer to die somewhat younger?


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.

    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.

    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!

    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.
