You live and learn.
We all know it’s coming, but we’re still surprised when the first signs of aging make their debut.
The good news is that getting older is not all about wrinkles, creaky knees and forgetting why we walked into a room. Like wine, we get better with age.
In fact, aging can be a good thing and is kind of funny, too. Getting older can certainly inspire plenty of hilarious and relatable quotes and memes that will surely have you saying, “This is so me!”
One day not so long ago, I was minding my own business listening to satellite radio in the car while my husband drove us to whatever our destination was. Then, it happened — the DJ played a Def Leppard song on the classic rock station. How could this be? Classic rock is Led Zepplin and The Rolling Stones. They were the songs of my parent’s generation and so much older than me. Surely the music I listened to could not be considered classic rock, but here we are.
That’s when I realized I’m getting old.
On the plus side, aging doesn’t happen in a flash. It’s a process. Life is a journey and we’re meant to learn from it every step of the way. The key to accepting it is to change your lens and not solely look at your life as one in gradual decline. While some things may very well be in decline, life can also get exponentially better as well.
Time after time, research shows that older people are happier. The running joke is that they just don’t give a damn, and while that may be true, there are plenty of other factors that contribute to their overall sense of well being.
Older folks have a more positive outlook on life, they are no longer concerned with the minutiae, and there are fewer difficult decisions to make. Sounds pretty great if you ask me.
Here are a few funny quotes and happy birthday memes about getting older to remind you to keep an open mind, because it’s really not that bad and aging can be quite funny.
