Today I’m another year older. I’ve always hated birthdays. Please don’t ask me how old I am. Luckily I look like a teenager and some people still ask me “How’s school”. Lol. Yep. I’m not kidding. So even if my age does not show, I still hate getting older.
So before I start falling into a negative spiral (that’s when something you perceive as negative grows into a big negativity monster that’s hard to kill and its all downhill from there), I decided to think about some positive things about getting older. This practice of listing positive things about a perceived negative situation will help a lot to put things in perspective. So here’s my list!
1. I’m wiser – Getting older and becoming wiser goes hand in hand. My younger self was clueless about how life works and made so many mistakes.
So there’s my list. I actually feel much better about getting older now. It’s not so bad after all. So for those who hate getting older, make your own list or borrow from mine. I’m sure most of you can relate to the points I made. You can share what else you think is positive about getting older. I’ll appreciate your thoughts. Until next time, Goodbye.
