Age is a wonderful thing

Hey readers,

People knock being old, for fear mainly. However, age happens to everyone. So, let's celebrate it because it can be wonderful for many reasons and here is why.

With age, you become more confident because you have lived on this planet longer and you know what the crack is. 

You know most people put up a front and you learn to not give a s**t in some respects. 

You change and you learn to grow into a different person, with different needs. With age you slowly don't give a monkey's about peer pressure, you can wear what you want, listen to what you want and it doesn't matter who you know because you can do your own thing.

Now that I have become older I care less about materialistic things that were much more important when I was younger. Not because of money more the fact I put more meaning on to them.

You are wiser with age and have learnt more so you have that experience. Which comes in handy sometimes as we all know knowledge is power.

I think we age certainly with myself I am less likely to judge. I am much more understanding and flexible with my thinking, understanding that people are different.

Let's celebrate wrinkles as positive because they indicate that we have lived, experienced and still here to tell the tale.

 If we stopped worrying so much about looking younger then the messages would slowly stop with trying to get us to buy wrinkle cream and botox which incidentally doesn't work but make most people look awful and permanently in shock.

The fewer people buy into this stuff that is trying to sell some crap message about looking youthful the better. The less demand for a product the less likely a need to sell it. 

I like the fact I can get to see my children grow as I get older. I don't fear it or get sad but happy and feel blessed that they are alive. As so many parents don't get this opportunity.

What reasons do you have to why ageing is good?

Cheers for reading X


  1. The older I have got I have learned to not give a s**t. I am past worrying about what people think of me. Age really is a wonderful thing x

  2. Agreed on all fronts. I actually feel younger in some ways now than I have in years. That is bringing challenges in my marriage as my husband has never felt older and we have quite an age gap to contend with. He hates getting older and of course as he cannot fight it he gets angrier and more frustrated. I am at a point in life when I want to take the experiences age has given me and use them to help other people in a new role if I can work up some confidence. Great and important post as so many of yours are #StayClassyMama

  3. Great post, I like to think that I have got wiser with age#thatfridaylinky@_karendennis

  4. I couldn't agree more. Sadly my mum passed away when was 50 so I see growing old as a privilege and therefore feel we all need to just the make most of life. It's short enough without having to worry about growing old. Thanks for joining in with That Friday Linky

  5. As I get older, I care much less what anyone else thinks of me. I have grown into being my own person. I think I have become kinder, more compassionate, and less stressed as I get older, all of which I appreciate. Great question to think about!

  6. I agree. I tend to appreciate every age for what it has to offer, as that's life.

  7. You know I wish I'd had half the confidence when I was in my 20's like i do now about being in my 40's after 3 kids. Thanks for joining in with PoCoLo and hope to see you back this week

  8. I have a confidence now that I didn't have 20 years ago. I also think I am a better mum being a 'geriatric' one. Life experience counts for everything! Thanks for linking up with #stayclassymama

  9. Reading this in the year I turn 40 - not looking forward to that!! #ThatFridayLinky

  10. I am struggling with the whole age thing, I must admit. I still feel emotionally much younger, sadly my body says I am not. Thank you for sharing with #stayclassymama

  11. I'm quite happy to embrace aging. They say age is just a number and I really feel it is. I think I worry less now about what others think of me the older I get too. #DreamTeam

  12. I keep thinking I should be feeling more grown up, but then quite quickly think "nah! I'm fine as I am!" Thanks for sharing with #PoCoLo
