Growing old is a sore spot with some people. As they grow old, they think life is slipping by their fingers, that they won’t be able to hold on to their youth or to the lives they have now.
I always feel like the more I worry about stuff like that, the less I spend actually enjoying my life and everything going on. Is my life how I imagined? Not exactly. But I am incredible proud of everything I’ve achieved so far.
I’m not scared of growing old, because by the time that day comes, it just means I’ve lived a long and full life, I’ve been able to do a bunch of stuff throughout my years and enjoy time with those I love.
Yes, some days seem pointless. Some days are difficult to get through. Sometimes I don’t really feel like getting up from the couch and doing anything. But when I look at the big picture, I realise there’s so much more out there to explore.
If you end up growing old, that’s a privilege, not a bad thing.
