5 Tips for a Growth Mindset in Your 40s and Beyond
By Vanessa Camozzi on July 11, 2023
Get excited because we have curated the most awesome Hello Kitty products for adults. It's true Hello Kitty is 45 years-old. Officially, Hello Kitty is middle aged and forever young! And just because I’m a grown up does not mean I have to give up the things I love just because they are considered “childish” So I will forever buy HelloKitty things no matter how old I am because I love her!
Think back to when you were a kid and took pleasure in small insignificant things. Things like cartoons, stuffed animals, spaghetti-o’s, and Super Mario Brother's Nintendo brought endless amounts of fun and joy to our lives as children.
Now of course as we get older we grow out of things and mature emotionally and intellectually. (Although I vividly remember protesting the whole "you're too old to still be playing with Barbies Vanessa") To be fair I was 11 years old but WTF I enjoyed my Barbies and felt it very unfair that I aged out at the extremely young age of 11 to keep playing with my Barbie and friends. I felt I had barely just scratched the surface. But society apparently didn't feel the same as me. Keep reading for awesome Hello Kitty products for adults.
So now as "adults" why should we have to go through life plodding along through our lives and cutting out the very things that used to entertain and thrill us? I for one will always love Super Mario Brothers NES and will never apologize for it (or for playing it as an adult.) Nor will I ever apologize for my obsession with Hello Kitty. I mean Hello Kitty is middle aged and forever young!
I remember the first time I laid my eyes on Hello Kitty. I went on my first trip to Tokyo, Japan in my early 20s and she was everywhere!! I’m pretty sure I brought back an entire suitcase filled with Hello Kitty items. She was so kawaii. So damn adorable.
Twenty-some odd years later, and I still love her so much. I don’t give AF if she is a cartoon. I don’t care if people think she is meant for younger children. I plan on being an 80-year-old grandma wearing my Hello Kitty bathrobe and slippers.
Hello Kitty brings out the inner-child in me. We all have an inner-child within us and it's healthy to have something that you love and enjoy no matter your age. Hello Kitty is innocent, fun-loving, and care free, and reminds me of what it is to be a kid. Hello Kitty is Middle Aged and Forever Young
Also, according to this article adults who embrace their inner child have a love for learning, are more curious, have more fun, achieve goals, They are lifelong learners continually striving to learn and seek opportunities to expand their knowledge. Embracing your inner child is one of the most valuable things we can do for ourselves.
Hello Kitty is not a cat or kitty. She's a cartoon, she's a girl, she's a friend, she even has a pet cat, but according to Sanrio, she is not an actual cat. Since 1974, Hello Kitty has inspired friendship and kindness throughout the world. Spreading happiness for generations through Sanrio’s “small gift, big smile” philosophy, she is a friendly reminder to think of others first and to always be kind.
Hello Kitty delivers endless smiles with her global message of friendship, encouraging people of all ages (another reason why she is a helloSPICA favorite, actually we will go ahead and put her in the icon category) to create long-lasting connections by caring for one another. Hello Kitty is Middle Aged and Forever Young! We hope you loved these awesome Hello Kitty products for adults.
