I sound like the biggest most outrageous attention seeker right now. But it’s not Facebook so you guys wouldn’t know and I only get this day once a year..so..
I just turned 32! Man, I feel old I disk of my back moved hearing this number.
And like 100 to 200 white hair on my head just got up in standing ovation.
And I can hear “yea you’re old” from 1 2 fine lines.. only 1 2 thank God.
Let’s talk about aging
Age.. is it really just a number??
Let me break it down. For the world it’s not, for you it must be!
I have talked about gazillion times how my 7 good healthy young years were sucked by illness and losses and blab la…we r not going to repeat today.
For a new start, age must be just a number!
To set new goals and be something you always wanted to be…you must not be even thinking about your age.
We have tons of example of people from everywhere in the world to prove there’s a time for everything and it doesn’t have to coincide with your age.
Don’t look around you and compare. I have done this depressing exercise for years. I would look at my batch mates and look at 20% who were successful in their careers or life (based on really exhausting, fake and torturous social factors) and then I would look at myself and spiral like that top from inception!
Don’t do that!
U have a different journey. You are a different unique person.
There’s always a job, a goal, a destiny to match with your situation. Look for that. Or work towards that.
In the end, u don’t know the crowd who looks successful to you might be going through a whole battalion of shitstorms. You never know!
Do not demean yourself.
There’s a lot of potential inside you. Some, you are born with. Some, your scars teach you. Don’t waste your pain.
I keep saying that. I wrote the whole content of my poetry book as a tragedy artist and I m glad I did that now I cant write half as good.
Life’s unfair! Truth be told.
Rise above it. Gathering the guide of your own life lesson and it’s going to be the best self-help book ever written, customized for you.
I can go on and on.
I am not panicked this year like I was when I hit 30 mark.
Because I know life better.
I know myself even better.
I just want you all to know that at any given day there’s an unexplored treasure hidden inside you, never take that for granted.
Life’s short or not, we don’t know. But tell yourself everyday “I’m worthy of love and respect, and the first person it should be coming from, is none other than me myself!”
Never overlook your self-worth.
Ok, stop snoring now.
I should go. Maybe i will do a more fun version later.
I love you guys and I love this place. You all are the most incredible most human crowd of people I have ever met.
Take care of yourselves 😊
