9 things we know will make you feel nostalgic

As the present now; Will later be past

The order is rapidly fading; And the first one now will later be last

‘Cause the times they are a-changing

- Bob Dylan

We know you’re humming the tune! These classic lyrics written by Bob Dylan evoke nostalgia and a reminder of the continuous marching of time and changes it brings. 

While songs may remain timeless, time stops for no one and continuously keeps marching on. In fact if you were born at the release of this 1964’s Dylan song you’d be 62 today and almost ready to retire – a lifetime of changes!

We as adults reminisce about our childhood days and past memories wistfully looking back at ‘simpler’ times when chappies cost 5c. We took a trip down memory lane and look back at some common activities that we indulged in as children that have very different meanings or results these days! See if you can recall having any of these experiences, or find yourself nodding and saying “so true" for today’s changes! It might be a sign that you’re old(der) (But of course, you’re only as old you feel!)

Times may have changed but you’re still having fun - and that’s the best thing about getting old; you know who you are and what you want, and nothing else really matters.

Age catches up with us sooner than we realise, in a blink of the eye we’ve gone from 60’s Woodstock to 80’s neon workout gear and 2000’s wearable tech - and before you know it will be time for you to retire. Make sure that you are adequately prepared to continue living to the standard you’ve enjoyed while working, and have enough retirement savings to enjoy treating yourself or the grandkids by investing in a retirement annuity with Discovery Invest.
