The thought of my birthday brought in that scare. To think that there was a time I wanted to be old. In primary school, I wished for secondary school. I did get there, then, the urge to be in university invaded. Now, here I am!
However, my fears were not my age but my accomplishments. I had a lot of questions in mind.
Did I start up late?
Will I meet up with my “before 30” plans?
How much impacts have I made?
At that point, I realised that the race is unending. The most important question was; “Why do I spend more time worrying?”
Humans! We wake up today striving to make tomorrow better with the plans of enjoying the harvest of our hard work tomorrow. Then, tomorrow becomes today, another day to worry about the “other” tomorrow. The struggle goes on and on.. The wants and needs keep shooting up.
Listening to 2 baba’s Dance in the Rain, the beauty of life was visible. The thought of them makes me fall in love all over again with Mother Nature.
“Take a seat and relax you’re my brother man
Love people from other lands and see them as one
If you believe you can fly
Then why don’t you try instead of doubting yourself
Living in negative vibes
Get up and say yes you can
And appreciate the simple things
Like the mountains and seas
And the land and the trees
And the flowers and leaves
Air that you breathe
A wonderful world, a wonderful world”
However, in every opportunity; sing out your heart and dance like never before!
En fin, reminisce on this; Yesterday is gone, Today is here and Tomorrow may never be ours.
Let’s bask in the sun and dance in the rain!
