Maybe You’ll Be Old Someday

sunset-old

Almost everyday, I see or hear the words:
I’m so old!
I don’t want to be old!
Oh no, 30 (or 40 or 50….) that’s so old!
Blah blah… such ‘n such… OMG we are getting SO old!

Really? Old? Is that a bad thing because I’m praying for my next birthday and the next…. I don’t know if I’ll see 40 but I’m sure excited about the opportunity and the same goes for 50 and 60 and 70….

I know it’s just an affectation. What is “old” anyway? A number? Not a single person, on earth, has met a creature or a being that is immune to aging. There’s no insurance policy, clause, or contract that will prevent the inevitable.

You are guaranteed of only one thing: one day you will die.
If you’re very lucky, you will get old.
