Hello coffee lovers and avid readers! Welcome to Olive’s Corner at Olive’s Café, where you get insights on thoughts of life.
Here’s my opinion on aging: there’s no perfect way to live your life in whichever age you are.
I’ve learned that as we get older, we hit a milestone at a certain age because of how society has functioned. It’s always between the ages of 18 to 65 that we graduate from school, get a good job, get married and start a family, and then retire. However, that isn’t always the case as I see curveballs that life throws at us and it’s either we check them off too early or too late. At first, I would feel scared because I didn’t know exactly what I wanted early on in my life, so I didn’t expect any of those areas to take place within my life.
What I did accomplish for myself is that I graduated from high school and completed four years of college before I hit a bump in the road. I didn’t get married or have kids, but it’s not something I’m focusing right now for my life. And not a lot of people follow that lifestyle in the same order. Some people have accomplished milestones earlier or later in life, and sometimes not a lot of the milestones get accomplished at all. Everyone, including me, has their own timing and people change their routes once their environment changes. I’ll do what I want and need to do to be happy as I’m still figuring out myself. I may not have the best life, but it’s flexible enough for me to work on myself and adapt to the changes.
This may be very brief, and it is important for people to talk about aging in life, but I don’t think that it should be the highest priority in conversations. What matters is that we make decisions that would help us be happy. Whatever choices we make are the choices we have to live with, and we only know ourselves, what we want, and what we need.
Remember, anyone can have goals and checklists, but we must always think about the curveballs that life throws at us. It’s okay that we get things done at any age sooner or later, as long as we are proud of our accomplishments and be happy about them.
This, as well as all my other articles, are open for discussion, so comment down below what you believe about aging.
