5 Reasons Why I'm An Old Soul

OK as much as I am an overactive hyper child like creature a lot (most) of the time I'm also a bit of an old soul as well. So today I'm going to be sharing with you 5 reasons why I am an old soul and why I love it. 

Black and White Movies 
I love the romance of a black and white movie, they are just so beautiful. They transport you to another time and place in a way that other films just can't. If you want to dip your toe in black and white movies I recommend The Ghost and Mrs Muir (the 1947 film not the 60s TV series). It's a lovely heartwarming film that will make you smile and want to watch it again and again. Plus it stars Rex Harrison who I absolutely adore.

Film Stars 
Sticking with the whole movie motif I prefer the stars of "Old Hollywood" than I do to the stars of the day. Don't get me wrong I love my fair share of modern film stars but there is something so classy and mysterious about the men and women of Old Hollywood that I just think is wonderful. Cary Grant and Peter O'Toole, sigh!

Staying In 
On occasion I do enjoy getting my girls together and having a crazy night out but I would take staying in with a good book or movie over that any day. I just love having some time away from people to focus on myself and relax a bit. 

I am sure there are plenty who agree with me on this but I prefer an actual paper book to a kindle. There is something so magical about the smell and feel of a real book which you lose if you are reading off a kindle or something similar.

I love writing letters and sending them in the post to people, it's just so more personal than sending an email or a text and I think you can show your emotions a lot better via a hand written letter. Plus it's nice to keep any letters you receive to read over in the future when you are feeling a little blue.

I hope you enjoyed reading this post about a few of the reasons why I am bit of an old soul. Do you agree with any of my points? Do you think you're an old soul? 

Thanks for reading!
