Do you remember when you were a kid, let’s say around 8-9 years old, and you saw the guys and girls that were around 18-20? To me they always looked like they were adults. Now that I am a little older (lol) than they were, I suddenly find myself feeling younger than ever. I mean, I am sure kids that are now the age I was back then are looking at me thinking I am a “sir.” Do you know what I mean?
It’s quite amazing what age does to your appearance, but it doesn’t touch your mind. All you gain is knowledge and experience, but that’s about it. That is, of course, if you are lucky enough to stay healthy and don’t fall victim to diseases that might show themselves as you get older.
There is a whole other level to aging as well, and that involves the objects around us. The things that we knew and held so dear at one point are many times no longer around. They just don’t fit the “edge” anymore, and besides, updates are good, right? Technology progresses faster than anything right now, and the proof of that is exactly what I am about to show you in this article. The things we used to call the latest and greatest gadgets back in the ’80s, and that we used pretty much everyday, have somewhat been forgotten.
The list of things that our children will never play with or even understand the purpose of were the hottest things about 10-15 up to 20 years ago. If you start thinking about that, you will immediately start to understand how weird all this is. Just have a look at these videos and tell me how many memories flash through your mind. Then show the videos to your kids and let them marvel over the primitive technologies that were at our disposal when we were their age. Change is good, just don’t let your mind change your perception of age. Always be young at heart, and your mind will make your life a whole lot more adventurous!
