Growing Older!

I love birthdays because I feel it’s a new chapter in life, and helps me to compare with earlier chapters and think about the changes, psychologically and emotionally. I am happy to see that I am not as silly as I was 10 years back! I think about the mistakes I made and the lessons I learnt, all the lessons that life taught me with its smiles and tears!

I often wonder why people are so happy to hear that they don’t look for their age and feel proud about being ‘young at heart’! If a 10 year old looks and behaves like a 3 year old, it can be scary and annoying right? Then why do we all like to get stuck in our ‘youth’? Is it not great to feel older, experienced and wiser with all the lessons we learn in life?

Yesterday, my friends threw surprise party and poured lots of love, gifts in the form fragrances and light, food and champagne, in a home away from home.

yes and so will be if 10yr old act like 20...right.!?)

with age we take different avatar from past . end of the present age is not the end of the world.
statically speaking you have another 60% life ahead. share your happiness and bury your sorrows(if any). go have fun.

No! If a 10 year behaves like 20, it can be very nice! In fact my best friend (MrM) is like that, he is much younger in age than me, but very matured and intelligent! But most of the time people who are on my nerves are very elderly people who refuse to leave their teenage! I dont know if I am clear in expressing this! Have you ever felt like saying...”People grow up”?
BTW! I have 60% of life left? That’s pretty scary, I feel I have already lived looong and lot!
Thanks for the comment! I always enjoy your views!
