My, my, my
Where has the time gone? When you’re a child, it feels time moves as fast as a snail. You can’t wait to grow up and be someone. You’re told you can be whatever you want to be. There are no out of reach dreams, just a steep climb.
Then you reach your late teens, people around you start saying to think realistically. Then comes your twenties, a time where people say dreams and hopes are for children. If you haven’t found your scene by now, it’s too late. You’re too old to still be searching for something.
As a child, I believed just about anything was possible. That we all can do great things. Growing older that “magic” of life unravels from time to time. Sometimes hard work doesn’t pay off. Regardless of how much you try at things, you just won’t succeed. At other times maybe you’ll catch a victory.
There are two quotes that I have been thinking about recently.
The first comes from an older television show:
- Life isn’t black and white, it’s gray.
This sums up the way of the world in my opinion. Things are very rarely ever cut and dry. I feel we should always remember this.
The second quote comes from the excellent song “Ambling Alp” by the band Yeasayer. In it they sing:
- The world can be an unfair place at times, but you’re lows will have a compliment of highs. If anyone should cheat you, take advantage of or beat you raise your head and wear your wounds with pride.
This is about all you can do. As I get older my feelings about life changes all the time. Is it amazing? Sometimes. Can it make you want to throw in the towel? Most definitely
Ultimately it is what it is. For the most part I believe you should try to find something that makes life happier for yourself. Being young and miserable all the time is one thing, but feeling more and more miserable as you age is not in the least romantic.
Anyway, I know this is kind of a long post, but hey, that’s the way it is.
