“Right now. I’m 45 and pretty content. I’ve got a 6-year-old and so far everything is going good. I’ve learned that there’s more in life than obtaining objects, and I’m to a point where I can enjoy it all without the rat race.”

I've lived over five decades and can safely say that, up to this point, there are incredibly happy times throughout life. I might not recognize them except for all those horribly sad times that are scatterred about in between!~)

I have no idea. Now is pretty cool, with me just having started doing photography full-time last year. But I'm guessing it'll just get better as I start making more of a living at it, so I really don't know.

i don't think i can put any one over another, at this point(i'm 48). i loved my kids' growing up years, and now i'm lovin' their adult (even with drama, hah) years and my gramma-hood. work is good, etc; nope, don't think i can say what will be the happiest period of my life. all of 'em, lol!

Harley: You could go through a Blue Period, like Picasso did.My happiest period will likely be the 3rd.

I hope that the happiest time in my life will be this next year after I get married. I'm 23, and getting married in August. We don't have much responsiblity right now, (no kids, graduated from college, not much debt,) and I hope that my fiance and I will be able to live it up and just enjoy being with eachother!

I would like to think it is waiting down the dark and foggy road somewhere, but perhaps it exists only in my memory.
