With the passage of time, just being natural reflections, ever deeper, about aspects of life. Every birthday, every New Year, we stop to reflect on what is good and what we should change. Are aging or maturing?Photo: TanjaN
This year in particular I questioned about everything around me and a question that arose was aging, am I getting old, or mature face? I always believed that age is in our attitudes, ideas, behaviors, after all, what really is a date? I am willing, well, I have an open mind to new thoughts or opinions change, but completing 33 years hit me differently somehow.
I concluded that I'm young and it really makes a difference what we think and how we act, that's what determines our age, not the physical but the mental. I realized that today, more than when I was 20-something, I get to do things I would have done before, but had no money (and no maturity) at that time. Travel, go out with friends, I go to the shopping mall, but I know that's not all. The feelings are replaced more value, family, friendships, respect, trust, love relationships, commitment and responsibility .... our attitudes toward all that changes and some things that were once so important mean nothing and others who did not even think before become essential.
After much thought I realized that the phases pass and we learn the lessons that life teaches us (good and bad) and I realized that the hardest are those who teach us to continue living. So, here I leave my record of what I'm going through, I hope you have been able to show that age is not always in ages, but always teaches us and makes us mature. If you are experiencing a similar moment, think about it!
