The tender teens                         The fretful fifties

The teachable twenties       The serious sixties

The tireless thirties          The sacred seventies

The fiery forties          The aching eighties, etc.

It all sounds so neat and orderly. When I first heard this version of the stages of life, I was in my thirties, and it hadn’t been tireless! I remember going to bed, exhausted, from caring for young children and all of the tasks of running a home and volunteering.

Did you feel fiery in the forties? Probably don’t remember? I don’t.

But the fifties? None of my friends in this range are fretful. Probably tireless, and at other times exhausted, from enjoying life and working.

Another friend, in her seventies, is quite teachable as she takes classes and works shops in her spare time.

It’s a fact to be accepted and treasured: We can all be exactly what we want to be at any stage of life.
