Getting Older

I used to love getting older, really, I did. I always felt that the older I got the better life would become. I thought that I would be able to see the world, do the things I wanted to do and be the person I wanted to be. “Har har har” Life said, “The joke is on you”. I definitely don’t feel “older” but feel more “aged”.
I think the biggest change that I’ve noticed is my inability to let go and dream like I used to. I used to believe that the world was my oyster and that I was invincible and could do everything and anything I wanted to do.
Now, I am more laid back which is not a bad thing but just different. I used to worry about everything, but now I know that things will figure themselves out in the end every time.

And the older Older song by George Michael

    I’ve been sticking my earphones listening to Caillat’s song since the minute you posted it.

    I have the whole album but this song wasn’t listed in my copy! Mesh 3aref leh!

    It’s very tender .. and everything will work out indeed .. or else how did the human race survive that long?

    Thanks for posting it, you really made my weekend.

        Ah the sensitive issue 8)

        Anyway, aging makes me always recall Mark Twain’s quote: Age is a matter of mind over matter; if you don’t mind, it dosen’t matter ๐Ÿ˜€

        I think it’s important to ask myself if I am getting better or not, that’s all and I bloged few months ago about this issue within the post entitled “Grow Up”
