Remember when you were young?
Or, er, younger?
Your life was probably carefree, apart from mini trials and tribulations which seemed so important at the time, like having to wait until your birthday for that inflatable Action Man rubber dingy you wanted so much. Colours were brighter, sounds were louder, smells were stronger, tastes were… tastier, thoughts were more profound. You seemed to encounter life-changing events on an almost-daily basis.
And then what happens?
You grow up, that’s what happens. You grow up quickly. Some would say, too quickly. The colours and everything else fade around you, you find you have less energy, less enthusiasm, and even less time. There is never enough time.
In short, life gets dull.
Or does it?
I have the key, I have the secret…
Keep your life interesting. Why were things better when you were young(er)? Because it was all new to you, that’s why. Simples. So make things interesting for yourself. Challenge yourself constantly, learn new things, meet new people, never allow your life to become stale and monotonous. Always remember, you only get one shot at this. And those hours you spend wishing you were somewhere else doing something (or somebody) else are hours you will never get back.
Life is for living.
