Life gets better as you get older? Who believes this? Sure as you get older you no longer have to be under the restrictions your parents give you….but then you have the restrictions of work, your own children, bills, homeownership, etc. So how does life get better as you get older?
I feel life gets better as you choose it to be. If you can in your own mind rationalize that things in your life are not really that awful….that someone, somewhere has things worse than you….you can realize that your life is better and in fact really is pretty good. If you can take the time to slow down, look around and find something beautiful in the world around you…you can realize that yeah your life is pretty darn good.
So you have too much work to do and too many bills to pay….the economy sucks…. there are too many unemployed people….the price of gas and everything else is too high…. but ….. you are missing the ordinary miracles….
STOP! Take a break. Look outside. If the sun is shining…. enjoy it… Flowers, grass, fresh air, rainbows, even a nice steady rain can be beautiful if you take the time to look and watch…. Wildlife…who doesn’t love to see a wild animal on the side of the road (preferably alive 🙂 lol) or in your own backyard. Children playing… Your significant other… Beauty is everywhere.. just look for it.
So even though I do not believe life gets better as you get older, Life DOES get better.
