22 Signs You're Getting Older But You're Actually Ok With It

We all think we're going to stay young forever, but slowly, but surely you start to notice things change in your life. And you're ok with it. And there's a lot more kale.

Posted on

1. You get excited when people cancel plans on you.


Otherwise you would have had to come up with an excuse. Like your lung suddenly collapsing or running over the family pet with the lawnmower.

2. If you do go out, you have to plan nights around hangovers.

You can't possibly feel that crap when you have that bakesale to run.

3. You're not very good at house parties.

You can be found in the corner eating kale chips. Or playing with their cat.

4. You will have your own cat.


All cats become majestic. And your life revolves around them.

5. You start caring about what goes in your body.


Because that kale makes you feel good, not just look good.

6. That goes for drinks too.


You'll pass on the enumbered blue bacardi breezer and have a vodka orange instead. Hold the vodka.

7. That also goes for sex.


The tiredness at work and the small talk at breakfast just isn't worth it.

8. So you only date people who are worth your time.

There's going to be no future with that girl with the face tattoo who still lives with her mother. Sigh.

9. You start shopping for comfort, not style.


Not style at all. Sequins are too scratchy, jeans rub your thighs and wearing a bra is just too exhausting.

10. After all you have to be comfy in all the weddings you've started attending.

Everyone and their cat are getting married. Every. Week.

11. You make sure you've always got a good jacket and an umbrella with you.


You never know when you might need them.

12. Most people under 20 start to really annoy you.

Look at them, with all their hopes and dreams about life.

13. And they're everywhere all the time.


Instagramming their coffee and their sleeves and not eating their kale.

14. Actually you can't really be bothered with anyone new.


If they were meant to be in your life, you would have met them by now.

15. Your fridge is actually full of food.

And not just condiments and vodka.

16. And you know how to cook it reasonably well.


And you know how to cook it reasonably well. The takeaways have been replaced with kale.

17. You have a set routine.

And it suits you. When someone wants to mess it up you want to hurl things at their head.

18. A 'wild night' is watching something that hasn't been recommended to you on Netflix.

Braving off your list.

19. You make a budget.


Using spreadsheets and a calculator and sums and everything.

20. And you actually stick to it.

You don't need Sky TV or those heels in the sale. You have a budget. And kale.

21. You have a full time job.

One where you get up early for and commute to and everything.

22. The younger you would have been shocked to see your life now.

But actually you've accepted it. Well, sort of. Pass the kale.
