My mother told me that as I'd get older I'd feel smarter. That is true. Besides getting smarter, I also think I've become more appreciative. More appreciative of quality time with friends. More appreciative of small gestures like birthday cards or when someone asks to read my work.
As I've gotten older I've also learned to say "no." If I don't want to do something, I don't do it. If I don't want someone in my life, I don't just put up with them because I don't want to make them feel bad. Life is short, we should spend it doing things we love with people we love, right?
What do you like most about getting older?
