Hmmm… this is an interesting topic. What gets better with age? Since I’m 23 and consider myself relatively young in the scheme of adulthood, I don’t know too much about aging outside of the general growing up experience.
I do know that red wine gets better with age. After trying some expensive wine at Morton’s The Steakhouse on my honeymoon and trying older wines while in China, I can say that old red wine is better than new red wine. I think in general old alcohol is better than new alcohol, but to be honest, I don’t drink much so I don’t really know. Serve me a Killian’s Irish Red with my dinner, and I’ll be happy!
When I was growing up, I expected my relationship with my parents to get better with age. I figured that as I got older I would understand their perspective more and that they would treat me like an adult. I thought we would be able to resolve our differences. Sadly, as of right now, we aren’t even talking anymore. I suppose at some point we will talk through all that has happened, but until that point, my relationship with my parents is one thing I expected to get better than just hasn’t.
As for one thing I didn’t expect to get better with age that did, I would have to say that my weight and general fitness has improved rather than getting worse. Of course, I haven’t had kids yet, but still. I figured my weight and fitness level would stabilize when I grew up and got a big kid job that didn’t allow for me to make drastic changes to my lifestyle. But recently, I have lost weight and begun to exercise, so I am slimmer and healthier than I have been in as long as I can remember! And the best part is that I am still losing weight! I love Pilates and eating healthy, delicious food. Also, I love discovering new recipes that help accomplish the eating of healthy, delicious food.
What do you think gets better with age?
