Happy To Be 31

I have completed 31 years of my life 4 months ago. I’ve always said that maybe by the time I reached 60+, I’ll be bed ridden or I’d often find myself admitted in the clinics/hospitals.

Speaking of age, why do they say “life begins at 40“. Of course not! I’d say my life began since the day I existed.

Wait! When they said “life begins at 40“, were they referring to the “social life” of one’s self? Honestly, I still don’t understand. Could someone enlighten me please?

For me, my life began at birth. But it has become meaningful when I finally had the extension of my life > Deye.

But really when does one’s life begin?

Anyway, back to my age > I’m proud and happy to be 31. Age does not matter to me. I may always say it’s my last year in the calendar but really it doesn’t matter.

The other day while I was thinking of a good subject for my digital scrapping, I’ve browsed on my old photos. I was fascinated the way my face have changed through the years. Until I saw the recent shots that I had. Then I realized, I’m slowly aging. I could tell the difference. But who cares? In the long run, my skin will get wrinkled, whether I like it or not…

As what Albert Einstein had quoted:

And in the end, it’s not the years in your life that counts. It’s the life in your years.

When you die, people won’t talk about your age. They will talk about how you’ve done good and bad through the years when you were still alive. So, why worry about one’s age, right????

  1. hi mitch! wow, new home! totoo ba ito? i need to have a wordpress account bago ako makapag comment? buti nalang meron and here i am!! πŸ™‚

    i heard that saying too about how life begins at 40. pero may bago din: 40 is the new 30 daw. i think that goes for 40 something women mostly kasi bumabata na because of cosmetic surgery, etc.

    for me, i believe that life begins when you want it to. it doesn’t matter if you’re 15, 40 or 65. as long as you go through life, savor its ups and downs and learn from the experiences along the way!

  4. Nice thought! In the end what matters is how well you have lived your life. I think that one’s greatest achievement in life is when you can look back to how you have lived your life and you don’t have a single what-if. So we must, carpe diem!

    Hi Issa! Thanks for droppin’ by! I’ll visit your page in a little while! Glad you liked my blog contents!

    What ifs in our minds are normal, but we should regret if it didn’t happen di ba? Kaya nga what if bwehehehe! Gulo ko na naman!

  7. hey fellow WP user!!! hehe

    Glad you switched to WP Mitch…I tell you it’s better than blogspot πŸ™‚ Already updated my link.

    About age, one man told me before that the reason why they say life begins at 40 is because it is during that age that a man really starts having a life. It’s the time where his kids already graduated from school, settled na and everything. Parang he was saying that before turning 40, a man holds a lot of responsibility for the family that he can’t really have time for himself. Well that maybe true πŸ™‚

    Belated happy 31st πŸ™‚ Like what they say..age doesn’t matter as long as the matter doesn’t age hehe its all in the mind. Stay young!

    Hi Verns! So do I! WP is much easier and user-friendly pa! Thanks!

    Pero di ba even if you hold a lot of responsibilities you can still have your own life. It’s just a matter of how you handle it! Mas nakakatanda yung dami ka na ngang responsibilities, tapos wala ka pang life. Ayaw ko yun!

    Wehehehe! Next year, I’d appreciate if you’d say Happy 30 something bday hahaha!

  8. Sis, Life begins for me when i was still at my mama’s womb or when i was still a fetus as i was already bugging her to eat that big guapa she saw up on the tree.

    I agree with einstein — it’s the life in the years that matters most. =)

    btw, have done the tag already.

    Yup, Einstein was absolutely right!

    Thanks!
