Is it extremely odd that I don't necessarily want to live a "long" life?

Just in case anyone misinterprets… I am not suicidal in any way, shape, or form.

I have never really had a desire to live to an old age. In fact, having observed many people, up close, in the later years in life… I want it even less. Even people who took great care of themselves usually end up dealing with incontinence or mobility issues, or both. Aches, pains, memory issues or dementia. Not that I don’t appreciate that, despite those things and others, people still love their lives and enjoy the time that they have… but is it really so strange that I don’t think I would be disappointed to check out before that point?
