As we get older, we begin to ask ourselves if we have already reached success or if we have done good enough to be better than our younger self. We start to think about having definite goals, those that we can actually achieve instead of the superficial ones which are probably a long shot. We create a “Bucket List” of things we want to do before we reach a certain age and we make sure to do them one by one. We realize that bills have the same value as hardwork, that we shouldn’t take them for granted or we’ll face consequences for our negligence. We become responsible not just for ourselves but for life, in general. We start to see life in a broader sense and we take on complicated things to be the new normal. We value work, more than we adore play.
But, in the middle of it all, we constantly ask ourselves, “Am I ready yet to get old?”
That, my friend is the million dollar question because no one, even the most intelligent person, or the wealthiest man was ready when they got old. We really wouldn’t know if we are ready unless we try doing what we have to do, which in this case, be an adult. When you’re already where you are supposed to be, you’ll know exactly what to do because life equipped you with everything you need to be better, to be stronger and to be wiser– wise enough to know that you have to grow up and not just age up because everyone gets old but not everyone grows up.
Being an adult ain’t easy but you will get there– in the right time, when it’s already your time.
