Getting older is challenging, and you can choose to grow old gracefully or with humor. Laugh at yourself and the passage of time with these 15 funny life quotes, available as free printables.
Lately, I keep getting reminders that I’m not as young as I once was.
Maybe it has something to do with celebrating my 46th birthday! (I thought about sharing more random facts about myself, like I did when I turned 40. But I’m older and more tired, so I’m just republishing this post with printable funny life quotes about getting older.)
Has it really been that long since I was a babe in my mom’s arms?
And how is it possible that I’ve been out of college for 23 years?
It seems like just last week, I was going to hall crawls and skipping class. (Oops, I mean diligently studying in the library in pursuit of educational excellence.)
The last time I went to the optometrist, she told me my prescription had changed and I might want to consider progressive lenses.
Bifocals? Those are for old folks. Must have been an equipment error.
Of course, I did buy myself a pair of readers at the drugstore. They must be using smaller print in books these days to save paper and trees.
And can we talk about back pain?
Sciatica is my killing me.
Oh, and let me tell you about the conversations I’ve been having lately with my gal pals.
All about hormone replacement, errant chin hairs and trampoline-induced light bladder leakage.
Getting older is no joke!
Oh, who am I kidding? It’s a laugh riot.
And I’m proud to be at that age where I can talk about things like wrinkles and aching joints and peeing a little when I sneeze without judgment or self-censorship.
Because, honey, these things happen to everybody. And every body.
Oh, and you’re probably going to get chin hairs, too, as your hormones fluctuate. (Just be glad they’re not nose hairs or ear hairs like the guys get!) When you do, you’ll be thankful for 10X magnifying mirrors and friends with bifocals who can see them and pluck them for you!
One of the best things about getting older is finding the confidence to be real and to laugh at yourself and to delight in the changes that every new age brings.
