So today is my 45th birthday, and a thought crossed my mind. I wonder if I am half way through my life? So I decided to see what the average age was when women died in Canada and it is 80 years of age. So that means I am on the downward slippery slope to dying. Gosh isn't this a cheerful post....LOL
The life expectancy of women in the USA is 79 years of age.
The life expectancy of women in Britain is 81 years of age
This link is really interesting, and makes me very thankful to live where we live, as in a number of countries, there is a good chance I would be dead by now.
Another thought crossed my mind is that, am I MIDDLE-AGED now? So I decided to look up the definition of "middle-aged" to see what was what, and here is what it says: "being roughly between 45 and 65 years old" as per this source. So I guess I am now middle-aged as well as being over half way through my life!!!!
Now before you think, oh she must be ever so depressed about turning 45, I'm not. I had a harder time turning 25. That birthday totally depressed me, as I felt so old....... Turning 30 and 40 didn't phase me.
Did you have a birthday that made you depressed, happy or over emotional?
Tomorrow, I will post all about my birthday and what gifts I got, which should be more cheerful!!
