Here's the link: Aging has an upside - Happiness
"So perhaps, as it turns out, pursuit isn’t the best approach in the quest for happiness. Patience offers better odds.
It appears that happiness sidles up to us gradually, gently, borne on a lifetime’s accumulation of adaptability, acceptance, appreciation and experience. A fringe benefit of age.
Another year older; another year happier. Light the candles. Cut the cake and celebrate as the double digits climb."
Middle age can be hard, but hang in there baby.
