Question: What Has Been Your Best Age Decade of Your Life?

Question: Based on your life experience, what has been your best age decade of your life?

Post on Facebook by Miyaji Keito, August 19, 2014.

The 40s has been so far the best decade of my life, and I’m sure it’ll get even better. I’ve learned that happiness is the key, and I don’t always need be right. As long as I know the truth, it doesn’t matter so much what other people think. I’m finally comfortable in my skin. I don’t fall apart when someone criticizes or disagrees with me. I’ve learned about forgiveness and about letting go of past hurts and mistakes. Having a positive attitude is the source of all the other good things that I’ve learned about myself and life. Thanks for being there on the journey!
