Never aging might sound like a dream, but there would be some downfalls, as well. I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for Lionsgate. I received a promotional item to thank me for my participation.
The Age of Adaline Movie
The Age of Adaline is a unique, romantic movie for all ages. This mystical film is more than the typical love story. Viewers will enjoy seeing the fashion changes throughout the decades while being entertained by a fabulous cast. The storyline is thought-provoking, as well as, magical. There’s enough going on for the whole family to enjoy.
I have a bit of a girl crush on Blake Lively, so I would see this movie no matter what the storyline. After watching the trailer, I look forward to the movie even more. Never aging causes Adaline (Blake Lively) a life full of adventure. It made me think of the pros and cons of never aging.
The Pros and Cons of Never Aging
- Stay (physically) beautiful – Not that aging isn’t beautiful, but let’s be honest here. I know I personally miss the supple skin of my youth. I took it for granted when I had it. Also, the ability to eat a large fry without it immediately settling into my love handles would be pretty sweet.
- Stop worrying about time – We are always rushing around and racing the clock. It would be nice to slow down a bit and not feel so rushed all the time.
- Experience everything – If we never aged, we would have more energy and ambition to experience everything the world has to offer.
- Reinvent yourself often – Wish you would have taken the time to become a podiatrist? Go for it, you aren’t getting any older.
- Lose your friends and family – Huge con. I would hate to lose all my loved ones and know that I would have to live without them forever.
- Always on the run – When you don’t age, that becomes rather suspicious. Scientists will want to poke, probe, and study you. Must run to prevent that from happening.
I could only think of two cons, but they are big ones. Big enough to make me grateful for aging. I love to grow older and share experiences with my people. One experience will be seeing this movie when it comes out on April 23, 2015 at 7pm!
