"I'm growing old", "I'm getting older", "I'm not young anymore" or any other phrase that describe counting more years in your life.
I've always thought that this is a bad thing, terrible fact of life and a very depressing feeling that you lost one more year which will not come back again.
The thing is, Nobody is gonna stay 21 forever for example. That never happened and never will. On the contrary you get to be 21 then 22 then 23 and so on. Till the end of your days. We are designed that way and programmed to live like that. Our life is just simply devided to parts or eras each part/era is very unique and different.
When you are 21, you should do stuff the 21 people do. Have no responsibility whatsoever(if possible). Travel around the world. Try new stuff. Full in love. And search for the career of your life. That what I think you are supposed to do from 21 to 25 or something.
Once you are 26 that's a new era with new challenges, new incidents in your life and new mindset (as they say). Once you are 26 you are supposed to enjoy new stuff and have new kind of experiences. I'm not saying give up on stuff you didn't get to achieve from the last five years. But you need to look forward. You now are 26 you should consider moving forward in the career you chose. Decide on your matrimonial life. Make your mind about your future. And also keep circling the world if you can and invest in your relationships. And again do new stuff.
That is from 25 to 30.
And so on,,,,
Every part of your life you will have different enjoyments, different break downs and different experiences in general . Like it or not, thats the way life works
Now, you have three options dealing with that fact of life:-
1- Try to change it and you have all my blessings and prayers for good luck 😉
2- Hang on what you had or having and let what you shall have go away and keep feeling nostalgic 24/7 ( and that is the real definition of wasting your life).
3- Take it one era at a time . Try to get the best of everyday you are living in. Enjoy every new experience you have and embrace every part of your life as it is .
Live your age to the best of its then move on.
I know my words may seem as cliche that we've been hearing for a very long time now.
Here I'd like to shock you with a fact that cliches are cliches for a reason. And that reason is they are mostly true.
There is a big difference between maturing up and getting older. And only you can choose which one you are doing everyday of you life .
