We can all use a bit of help with the aging process. It’s a natural part of life, and we may not realize it when we’re older, but it can be done.
I’m not saying we need to get our hair and nails done every year. But we probably should get them every three months. Or every six months, depending on your hair length.
Hair and nails can be a great way to help us age, but they are a double-edged sword in that they can be super annoying. For one thing they can make you miss things like food and sleep, and for another they can make you look bad to your family and friends.
The thing is when you get older, you do get a lot of changes. You just may not realize how much you have been changing, and how much of a change you have been making. People often have a hard time understanding how young you were when they think it’s just the same as the people they remember, but you were actually a different person.
Yes, it’s true. I grew up between 3 and 5 years old. I was the youngest in my class in kindergarten. I was also the only girl in my class. Although I was one of the prettiest girls in my class, I was also the only girl with braces. I was teased as a freshman because I was too pretty to play basketball, and I was teased because I was the only girl in my class who could dance.
It wasn’t until I was in college that I realized that I just felt different. It was in college that I realized that I really thought I was a grownup. It was then I realized that I was having a growth spurt. It was then I realized that I am a different person now than I used to be.
Every year I get to be a kid and I try to make it as hard as I can to grow up. I do think I am growing up a little slower, and my brain is very slowly letting go of ideas. I do think that I am growing a little more in my twenties. It is the same with my life as it is now.
Growing up is a lot of work and you have to take lots of daily decisions that are totally different from those you would make in your 20s and 30s. It takes a lot of time, and it’s a lot of stress. When you’re a teenager doing all the same things and growing up the same way, it’s hard to see things in a new way.
The thing is, it takes a lot of time to grow older in our society. For instance, I am no longer a teenager, but I am still doing a lot of growing older. I am still taking many of the same things as I did when I was a teen, but I have to make them different from what I would have done in my 20s.
