Today is my birthday. I’m 48. That’s just a number though, a number that says nothing more about me than how many years have passed since I arrived in this world. Most of the time I don’t think about how old I am.
To be honest, apart from the fact that my body doesn’t function as well anymore, I don’t feel much different now than I did twenty or even thirty years ago. Obviously, I have more life experience but the essence of who I am is still the same. I don’t even feel that ‘grown up’; there are people younger than me who I look at think “wow… they’re so mature”. Perhaps they feel the same way about me - maybe we just don’t see ourselves in the same way others see us.
How about you? Do you feel you’ve changed during the past ten years or so? Twenty years? I guess the answer largely depends on how old you are now. Certainly, the older I’ve become, the less I feel I've changed. I suppose I must have, though.
I’m not sure what I’ll do today. Probably nothing. There’s luxury in nothingness :)
