twenty-nine

OK, I admit. Part of me is reluctant to accept the reality of me being 29, while the other part feels liberated(?)- from twenty-something woes -- for I'd like to think that I'm over with quarter-life crisis (assuming my lifespan lasts 100years).

Like the rest, I have questioned about my career path, and pondered on the word 'love' many times that most of my earlier posts (deleted and unrecorded) were about those. But having aged, those things rarely come up; maybe because I already found the answers to those questions, or completely at peace to what is at present. What I know, for sure, is that I don't whine much compared before.

I'd love to be worry-free while I age but knowing life, it never runs out of surprises. Either type of surprise can happen anytime.

If only I have the power of premonition, I could just glide my way through 50 and beyond, wrinkle-free, unscathed but ignorant (I suppose). That being said, I’d rather not have THAT power (because it's impossible). Getting old with wrinkles, minor bruises and lastly, possessing wisdom beyond books feels much better.

No way. This is the second post I read today about aging. Hey, age is mind over matter. If you don't mind, it doesn't matter. Lol.

Aging scares me. The thought of growing old and wrinkly and losing control of bodily functions and the possibility of being a burden to others really scares me. Sure, I'd like to age and tell great stories to my future kids and grandkids, but in general growing old is pretty scary for me.

Korek!!

@ChinkyMel,
Uhm..it scares me too but there's really nothing we can do about it. Nature will find its way that not even the best anti-aging cream can defy, lol.
