28 Things You're Never Too Old For


the blog title image with the words 28 things you're never too old for


As the weather has been getting better, I've been itching to go disco dancing and living in Manchester there is no shortage of options.


When I suggest this to my fella, however, I get told that being 42, I'm too old for that shit......


Granted, me sweating my tits off in some dodgy club at 5am wouldn't be a great look but can't I even throw some shapes down in the local social club?


It's a question I genuinely wanted to know so I went online and asked the people on Reddit what are the things you're never too old for.... and this is what they said


28 Things You're Never Too Old For?



"Trick or Fuckin' Treatin'! I have way more fun than my son"

"Rooting for your favorite sports team"

Deep Down We're All The Same And We're All In This Together


"Pets. Watching the faces of the elderly when they interact with animals, you can see how much joy they get from it"

"You're never too old to act immature"

"Laughing, life can be short or long but it should never steal happiness"

"Video Games. People told me I was getting too old for video games when I was a teenager, but no one says that to me today as an adult"

"Playing peek a boo with a baby. My dad spent an hour on the weekend playing peek a boo with his granddaughter. I think he was having more fun than she was"

"Cartoons"

"Revolution against the bourgeoisie in the name of the working class"

Do I Need To Spell It Out?

"Live concerts of your favorite music"

"To start a fresh life"

"Horsing around with your friends. I've seen all ages fucking about being idiots and loving every second of it"

"Making new friends"


a puppy with the words love you representing how nice it is to get love off other people
Who Doesn't Like Being Told "I Love You"?

"Everything. If there is something you want to do, don't let anyone tell you otherwise because you're too old. You won't get younger again"

"You are never too old for exercise. I should probably take my own advise"


imagine about dad jokes


"Crippling self doubt"

"Bitching about all the stuff you could do when you were younger"

"Naps"

"Rock-N-Roll !!!"

"Starting Over"

Feel The Love

"Date Nights"

"Joy, love, crying, giving, learning, life lessons, being wrong, teaching, etc.."

"Getting older"

It can be hard to navigate through life with all the expectations society puts on us but who are we living for..... Ourselves or other people?


Gone are the days of me telling myself I'm not able to do something or I'm not capable and if I ever need a reminder I tell myself this.....


If I'm not harming anyone else then NO ONE and I do mean NO ONE has the right to tell me what I can and can't do.

               Why Listen To Me?
 
(The short answer is I don't know)

You know, if you had asked me a decade ago where life was taking me, I wouldn't have had a clue. Back then, I was right in the middle of a rough patch—a mental health breakdown that seemed to be wrecking every part of my life.

But hey, fast forward to now, as I'm edging into my early forties, things have done a complete 180. What used to be a mess of struggles has turned into a journey of finding peace, purpose, and meaning in my mental health recovery.

These days, you'll find me in Manchester, living and working, using the chaos of my past to help others untangle their minds. If that sounds like something you're into, well, maybe this blog could be just what you're looking for. Come along as I share stories, insights, and lessons learned on the rollercoaster ride from rock bottom to resilience.

Be the first to know!
