While, the saying goes, “getting older isn’t for sissies”, if you have your health (and this is a huge factor in the happiness quotient), there are many advantages to getting older.
- More confidence in just about everything
- More freedom to make choices and fewer competing priorities
- Time for friends
- Appreciation of my family
- Finances are better
- Love where I live
- Don’t crave things I don’t have
- I’m better at enjoying the moment
- At peace about my understanding of life and where I fit in
- And, oh yeah, I get to live a little longer while others don’t have this opportunity. Seize it!
