The Rolling Stones sang
Time has its own agenda. Time is predictable, we are not. Every passing year that someone sings to us 'Happy Birthday to you', do we get one year wiser, or do we waste the opportunity?
Many people love their birthdays, love the celebration, love the compliments, love love, the presents, the messages, the notifications, the posts, everything. But most of these people, don’t love adding a new number to their age every year.
But really, what does that number mean? Should we fear that number? Should we let that number let us feel less instead of more, or hold us down on the things we want to do? How should we measure age? With just one insignificant number or with how we feel, and how do we set and achieve our goals?
Satchel Paige, a baseball legend once said, "How old would you be if you didn't know how old you were? You are the only one that can answer that.
Age is a reflection of our most profound sentiments.
Let’s measure our life with these good vibrations, not with numbers:
Society has constantly made us believe through the years, that there is an age for everything. We have been told that there is a label for every phase of our lives; that we should do things according to our age group. But don’t focus on the number. A lot of incredibly successful people have achieved their goals going against traditional age expectations. They never paid attention to the number, because their attitude made them believe in themselves.
Morgan Freeman, one of Hollywood’s best actors, and one of the best voices on the silver screen, wasn’t an actor his whole life. He never cared about being too old to start a Hollywood career; all he needed was to believe that he was talented enough to conquer Tinseltown. Giving up was never an option. When he was 52 he played the role of Hoke Colburn in Driving Miss Daisy.
