For many people, the passing of the years is a problem for the mind, but in reality only the fact of having a birthday is a gift that you have to know how to appreciate in life. Although the body ages, the mind remains young as long as one wants it to be so. Next we are going to show you how getting older and turning years is a good thing for you.
You get wiser
After overcoming the adversities that life puts on you, you will become a much smarter person . You will make better decisions because of all the knowledge of life that you have accumulated. When you can use your newfound wisdom, you can create the life you want without having to jump through hoops of mistakes to get there. You already made the mistakes and now you are completely ready to take your life to the best possible level.
You are more comfortable being who you are
You know who you are and whoever doesn’t like you just doesn’t have to be in your life. You no longer feel the need to impress people or hide certain aspects of yourself because you realize that the people you need in your life are the ones who love exactly every facet of you.
You accept your whims and pleasures and you are even proud of your weirdness because the only person who needs to accept you for you is you, and now that you are old enough to realize that you can finally do it, you just do it.
You appreciate and value the time
When your time on this earth gets shorter and shorter, it really makes you appreciate it. You realize that wasting time on things that don’t make you happy is pointless. When time is limited, you learn to live in the moments and that is something beautiful.
You take better care of yourself
You are eating healthier and exercising regularly. You go to your doctor and you go to your dentist’s appointments. You make sure that you are taking optimal measures to ensure that everything works perfectly. When you take care of yourself you feel better and it is much more important as you get older. Not only are you treating your body like the temple that it is, but you are also allowing yourself to feel better because you know that as long as you are healthy, you will be fine.
You feel comfortable in your own skin
By the time you reach a certain age you no longer feel the need to compare yourself to others and the insecurities that you used to have have simply vanished. You realize that these are more important things than obsessing over your looks compared to younger ones because you don’t have to be a model to be beautiful.
You are more financially secure
You’ve spent most of your life working to make sure your career took off the way you wanted it to. Now that you are secure in your job and have some money in the bank, you have more financial freedom . It’s a great stress reliever to know that you can take care of yourself financially and that as you get older it just gets easier.
You know how to better manage your emotions
After spending years in different less-than-ideal unions, you are now a master at relationships. You know exactly what you want from a partner and what you don’t want. When it comes to dealing with conflict in relationships, which is completely unavoidable, you now know how to handle your emotions gracefully all the time while choosing your battles.
You know what you want and how to order it
It takes decades to figure out what you really want out of life, and then a couple more years to figure out how to get there. As you get older, this not only becomes easier, it also becomes something you are not willing to compromise on. The things you want are always within your reach and you know it now because of all the experience you have in not getting what you want.
In addition, you know that what does not serve you or does not make you happy in the present moment, simply has no place in your life.
