Growing old sucks!  It’s rare to find someone who is truly okay with aging.  A man by the name of Sahil Bloom (@SahilBloom) decided to do something fun for his 32nd birthday, so he asked a bunch of 90 year olds to give advice to people in their 30’s.  He then compiled his favorite answers.  I have listed 20 of my personal favorites.  

  1. Now and then, break out the fancy china and drink the good wine for no reason at all.
  1. Dance at weddings until your feet are sore.

  1. Tell your partner you love them every night before falling asleep. Someday you’ll find the other side of the bed empty and wish you could.
  1. Don’t fear sadness, as it tends to sit right next to love.
  1. Laugh loudly and unapologetically whenever you feel like it.
  1. Do one good deed every single day, but never tell anyone about it.
  1. Time doesn't heal anything when it comes to relationships. Don't delay difficult conversations.
Life is too short to put off difficult conversations. (Canva)

  1. Find the things that make your eyes light up. Do more of those.
  1. Always remind yourself that your track record for making it through your bad days is perfect.
  1. No one has ever argued their way to happiness.
  1. Never let a good friendship atrophy. Send the text, make the call, plan the trip. Good friendships must be treasured.
Send that text, make that call. You may never know how much it means to someone. (Canva)

  1. Give everybody a second chance, but never a third.
  1. Taking no risk is the biggest risk you can take. Regret from inaction is always more painful than regret from action.
  1. It doesn’t have to be perfect for it to be wonderful.
  1. Stop trying to change people who don’t want to be changed.
  1. You may win the argument, but if you lose the friend, what was the point?

17. Do one thing that challenges your mind every single day.

  1. Allow your kids to fail. You will hate it, but it's so important.
  1. No amount of money is ever worth trading for your peace of mind.
  1. If your kid wants to dance in line at the store, join them.
