The Low Down Funny Side Of Aging!

The Low Down Funny Side Of Aging!
Today I was having a conversation with my bestie about the funny side of aging. And about the new things, I've learned about myself being over 40 something. It's weird how the time clock seems to have slowed down, and my kids are passing me about in height.
So if you are wondering about the funny part about aging, give me two minutes to share my two cents. 
Disclaimer, this is my story center around my everyday real-life. What I find funny about aging you may not even agree with or crack a smile. But that is the best part of my journey, understanding that we all are different, and everybody is going to have a different view on it.  So, let's jump right on into today's babbling about nothing, shall we?

The Low Down Funny Side Of Aging!

Lately, I've been trying to find something funny about living in this space we call life. I really do believe doing so keeps the wrinkles at bay. Or at least keeps my frowns upside down.
I do not know about you guys, but the year 2020 has me thinking a whole lot about life. And most of my thoughts have been about making changes that will fit my new normal. Who knew wearing a mask in the city would become a thing?

 When I was younger I learned how to bounce back from the lemons of life. Now that I am older, I am making sweet lemonade honey. Ha! It's funny. I think as I am getting older, I do not let much worry me anymore. It's not cool, and it adds no value at all to my life.

And you know what else is funny. I am eating more food now than I ever have in my life. Last week I walked five miles with ease. My plan was to do it every day, but I realized I was a wee bit over my head. So, I celebrated the fact I forced myself to walk only one day out of the week. I've decided there will be no pressure on doing anything for the rest of my life.

It's funny how my life and others around me have taken on a new shape to living and adjusting to new things. I want to be happy for no reason at all. You know that feeling when things may not be ok, but you are still ok.

Yep, that is where I am setting my goals and my thoughts at the moment. It took me a while, but I had to move everything that was pulling on my energy. It's called the low down funny side of aging.

I am finally finding myself after almost 4 decades on this earth. It's the sweet spot where most people want to go but never tap into it. 
Do not get me wrong I am aware of things going on in the world and in my own life. But, I've decided I will fix what I can and move to the side stuff I can't fix. And yes, it is that simple.

Recently, my husband and I made some decisions to down-size and pay cash for everything. That was before the virus hit, and I promise ya'll that was the best decision we could have made. We made a list collectively on the things we were going to keep doing, and we got rid of the things we no longer needed. We have three daughters in college and one in elementary, so it's time we started thinking about what we want our lives to be in the next ten years when we are living alone. 
And we decided it would be nice to sit back and enjoy our small bits with pure happiness. 

And that is the real tea on life. No more overthinking things that really have no value. At this point, I am sitting back, laughing at life. Because I now know I have the power to write the laughs of my life.
The year 2020 had definitely taught me some lessons. And although I hate cooking, I will not complain. And I will celebrate all small wins such as walking only one day this week. 

My grandmother used to say wisdom comes with age, and I think I finally agree after all these years. Now, that is funny how I am repeating something my granny once said to me.

And there you have it the low down funny side of aging. To simplify this whole blog post today: I realize I am never too old to learn something new and change things around. Ha! That's a lesson all by itself. 
That's my story, and I am sticking to it.

Tell me how your day is going? 

Until Next Time See Ya In A Bit!
