“Age is just a number,” says the well-worn adage. But is it a number you care about, or one you tend (or try) to ignore?
Every moment we live is worth it! Every year we live is worth it! Yes, we do care for this number. When we were young, our elders used to ask us “What do you want to become when you grow old?” And we promptly used to reply revealing all those crazy fantasies we had. Now in our thirties, our response would be “We would like to become a child again”. This is because we enjoyed every bit of our childhood, good or bad, happy or sad. It was the age of innocence, an age when we used to have a heart full of unconditional love.
Seconds make a minute, minutes make an hour, hours make a day and days make a year! So why disrespect this number? Everything that happens in our life is a blessing in disguise. Let us celebrate this number. Let us feel this number in every breath we take. We felt our childhood which is why we wish to go back there again, we felt our youth, we are feeling our adulthood and we will hopefully feel our old age too, with pleasure! 🙂
