Brian’s Blog: Our Happiest Years
A candy company recently surveyed 2,000 people who said the ages of 9 and 68 were the happiest years of their lives. How about you?
The survey, conducted by sweet brand Juicy Drop Pop, asked a total of 2,000 people between the ages of 5 and 80, found that 64 percent of those aged 68 and 80 percent of 9 year olds claimed that having fun was top priority and one of the most important driving forces in their lives, which is more than any other ages in life.
As I think back, being 9 for me wasn’t much fun. My birthday is in May, so most of that year was spent in fourth grade. To this day, I dislike my fourth grade teacher for a variety of reasons. As Forrest Gump said: “And that’s all I have to say about that.”
With 68 still in the future, I guess I look at years in the past as good ones or bad ones. In good ones, some great things happened. In bad ones some bad things happened. They all have shaped me into the person I am today. I wouldn’t change anything.
How about you? What would you say have been your happiest years? Leave us a comment to tell us about it.
