Ahhhā¦ To be young and free. To have a lot of excuses to make mistakes and to just be immature. Spoken from a guy that is still in his late 20ās, it isnāt as reliable as when it comes from the mouth of a middle-aged man but just hear me out here.
I just turned 28 and Iām feeling really old. This is a yearly feeling especially on my birthday month but this year is different. It is different because I feel like thereās a shift already. Iām not part of the young crowd anymore. For years, I left like I was part of it but recently I am feeling like Iām not. Thereās a divide already.
But I donāt want to feel old. I believe what you envision is what will actually happen and who wants to look and feel old, right? As for everything about life, having that balance is key. It doesnāt mean if youāre older, you can never feel young. I am optimistic and I admit that sometimes I do feel young.
I feel young when I take new challenges and feel very ecstatic when I achieve it. I feel young when I get lost. What I mean is when I travel and explore more places and experiences. I feel young when you have already accepted your strengths and flaws and find ways to make them your strength someday. I feel young when I learn new things. As someone I donāt remember said, āEvery single day is a chance to learn something new.ā I feel young when I get physical. Physical meaning, I take myself to new heights when it comes to my physical and mental health. And the most important is when you just enjoy the moment. Just enjoy it. Every moment.
Iām not saying I getting old is bad. Getting older is golden. I mean, if youāre older, you are wiser and more experienced. If you reach that certain age, you know better how to traverse lifeās problems. And getting old is an achievement. Not all people have reached the age that you are in now. So, congratulate yourself as I would to myself. š
It has been a while that I have posted a very personal post and I do apologize for that. There is a lot on my plate as of the moment like my work and my dreams. Until the next time. Happy birthday self. I am happy that you have reached thus success and I hope you will have happiness and contentedness pretty soon.
