Hello 2014. I've just celebrated my birthday and I wasnt so excited about the fact that I'm getting older. "Time is running out" you're no longer in your teens, you're hitting the midlife crisis, You no longer have all the time in the world. I admit, I've bloomed and matured quite slowly...I'm late with everything, mainly thanks to my infamous flaw of procrastination. You don't realize how old you are until you start witnessing your friends with a family of their own (especially those younger than you). *sad*.
Anyhow, as I'm older now, I realized that I've dwelled on comfort my whole life.... After analyzing and processing my thoughts, my life experiences, my current situation and my desires, an epiphany arose. Instead of wasting away my youth in comfort and questioning whether i'm content at this point, why not just experience more until the very end when it's time to make critical life decisions such as; "where would I want to settle, who am I going to marry, or what should my career be for the rest of my life, where should I retire, when do I have kids...". There is a time limit to make those decisions and people are in most cases afraid of changes, but ultimately, I believe that there are things that are yet to be discovered. Not just about this world, but about yourself as well. In other words, the more exploration and life experiences you encounter, the more you'll be able to truely understand yourself simply because you've been exposed to various settings. Security and comfort is passé and should be meant for when there are no more fuel left inside you to burn. The slightest desire to step outside and not doing so will eat you alive, obstructing life satisfaction.
If you were on your death bed at this moment. Are you satisfied with what you've lived through so far? Have you done everything you ever wanted? Have you had no regrets? If I was at an old age, looking back at my life, I would like to believe that I've done everything I possibly could to make it worth while.
Til next time ^^
