Your birthday is coming.
Like many, you like to say, “Man! I am getting old!”
No, you’re not.
You are not getting old.
You are just getting older.
There’s a huge difference in that.
It means the number attached to life goes up by one.
It means you get to be older than others.
It means you get to guide the young and be a responsible adult.
It means your body is still healthy.
It means you’ve more experience hence, maturity in life.
Even if you disagree with that, it’s fine.
Because it means you still have time. Because here you are, alive and well.
So quit bitching about becoming old, feeling old and then proceed to start acting old.
You’ll die faster that way, and I don’t just mean physically.
