Getting older

It happens. It is a nature of the Universe, after all. Even Universe itself gets older. Which means we are living by the laws of the Universe.

You could even say, we are miniature Universes.

I have a curious question? Did you, as a child, thought about your future? Let’s say ten or twenty years further. It might be weird to think about it as ten year old.

When I was a kid I didn’t thought about it. I wasn’t taught it. At least not properly (whatever that means). Obviously, I don’t want to blame adults around me. There is some fault, but not enough to blame them.

Such thinking requires some practice. To think ten and more years in the future, that is. World changes so fast, that we don’t know what will happen.

However, such thinking is useful. Not just for kids, for adults too. To visualize how your life would look after thirty or forty years. What would you do then? How would you think when you are that old? What kind of people would surround you?

Being young is fine. Young people have their advantages. They also have their faults. Being inexperienced in life as one. Being raised in a rubbish way, other. Yes, there are exceptions to everything.

Getting older is not bad. It is an experience on its own. Depending on how you live, you become wiser, more experienced in the magic of life. At some point you’ll wish to have had the same knowledge as a youngling. I know, I do. Me, as kid, with my current thinking? Yes please.

I don’t know when I’ll die. I’m keeping that in the back of my mind, though. As far as I’m concerned, I’ll live until the age of 150. After that, I will transfer my consciousness into my clone. Plenty of time to enjoy this life.

In some way I can’t wait to be old. To be a badass seventy year old. Still long way to go, but it will be awesome. One thing I know sure, I want to be old on my own terms.

Getting older should be looked as an experience not as a curse. Why bother to keep yourself younger with some weird stuff. Sure, everyone is aging at their own speed. And some, obviously, are vampires. Being old is a record of you having lived a full life. I think it is pretty cool.

Don’t just think about tomorrow. Think further. Beyond your grasp of understanding. Getting older is the nature of the Universe. Celebrate it.
