A red wine matures and gets better with age, do you think we get better with age? Or is it just that as we get older we learn from our mistakes so it makes us better people. We also have a bit more money once all the children have left home so we spend more on ourselves and buy a better brand of clothes. When do we realise that we are old? Is there a moment that you realise or does it just creep up on us. I have never really thought about it but I guess you don’t when you are younger, your too busy juggling work and family. I think when you are in the transition stage between young and old, it is very hard to fit in anywhere or know how to dress or where to go and what to do. My age has never bothered me as it has not made any difference to what I am doing or where I am going.
I think I have had a moment and have realised I am not as young as I thought but on a good note I feel very content with my life now and I guess that comes from the learning experiences I have been through that have made me into the person I am today. We all learn and change through our lives, you just get better at it the older you are. I think the aches and pains make you feel a bit older and it makes you realise you cannot do what you could 20 years ago, I find that annoying at times. I think I am a better person now as I have more time to be a good mother, nan and friend. It is lovely having lunch with your best friends with no high chairs, bibs and food all over the floor lol
