What excites you most about getting older? (VIDEO)

Melissa Gilbert shares the best part of getting older

What is the best part about getting older? Melissa Gilbert can't wait to see what happens next.

Melissa says, "What excites me the most about getting older is that I’m still getting older. The alternative to getting older is just not an option. I’ve reached this incredible phase in my life. I’m at this passage into a very peaceful place. The best part about getting older? I don’t care any more. I want to be healthy and I want to take care of myself but I don’t care that I have lines around my eyes and I don’t care that I’m carrying a little extra weight. I think this is actually pretty great. I want to see what happens next."
