So... getting old. It's a sensitive subject for many... but not many in their twenties. However, I am one of those people who at 23 is completely stressed out about getting "old".
I know I'm not old in the true sense of the word but that doesn't stop me from panicking about the time I have left to make all my dreams happen. However, I have now come to the realisation that time and getting older is something that I cannot control; it's one of the only things to exist (along with death) that no one can control.
Therefore, if I cannot control it, I need to accept and embrace it. Although not always easy, it's about changing your mindset and looking positively at the future. Believing in yourself and having others believe in you is one of the strongest motivators, so whenever you catch yourself doubting your dreams, imagine yourself reaching your goals and how amazing it feels. And remember, if you truly want it enough, it will happen for you.
In the video below I discuss how I deal with my fear of age and getting older... hopefully it helps anyone with the same fear. I'm pretty sure I'm not the only one.
