#21. Special Birthday Post!

It was my eldest brother’s birthday yesterday and he shared a very valuable lesson with me.

Age is just a number, but it is also your age.

As we approach the second quarter of our lives, it is imperative to maintain a youthful outlook and lifestyle, to not lose the creativity and vigor of our teens and the drive of our early twenties.  This is quite a standard message.  I think, however, the crux of what my brother is attempting to pass to us, is that while feeling and acting young are a necessity, we should also embrace our age.  With age comes many immeasurable advantages over youth and if we do not recognize and utilize them, we will be marooned in a mist of youthful fantasy.  Age is wisdom.  Age is experience.

We must embrace our age with the vigor of our teens and the drive of our early twenties.
