Do you worry about the way your skin will look as you age? Maybe you’re worried about your fitness levels and ability to do things. Yes, there are downsides to the aging process but there are also advantages. Here are some of the things to remember about getting older.
The Playing Field Is Levelled
One of the best things about aging is that it happens to everyone.
Those beautiful girls in high school will start to look just like you with the thinning hair and the fine lines (unless they opt for expensive surgery and then their bank balances suffer).
Aging levels the playing field and it is clear that beauty really is just skin deep.
Age Brings Maturity
As you age, you become more mature in your way of thinking. This allows you to become more level-headed and you can make more decisions sensibly.
It will help you in many areas of life, whether you’re looking to start a new career (yes it is possible) or want to get a new mortgage or other type of loan.
You Grow Wiser in Your Old Age
You have had many life experiences, which helps you grow wiser. You can use your experiences to help you make decisions and further your career aspects.
There are many who will come to you for advice, whether it is on your parenting style or the way to dress to look great. You never know what wise saying you will think of next.
You’ve Dealt with Rejection
You’ve been rejected in different areas of life and you know how to deal with that. It could be rejected for a promotion, to get into college or even by a boyfriend.
The first one is always hard but the more you get, the thicker your skin grows. You start to realise that you can handle anything that life throws at you.
You’ve Made Most of the Hardest Sacrifices
Throughout your younger years, you will likely have made sacrifices. You may have had to leave college to care for an ill parent. Your career may have been put on hold while you raise your family.
There may have been personal medical issues that put your life on hold. All of those sacrifices are out of the way and you can now do things for you.
You Have More Freedom
You have much more time to explore and do what you want. Work may still get in the way but retirement is just around the corner.
Selling the house and taking that worldwide cruise really is possible now. Why not? You have all the time in the world.
You Know What It Means to Love
Not just that but you also know what it means to be loved. This could be from a family member, a partner or your own children.
This is something that only comes with age and you will start to appreciate it more now than you have ever before.
