Live your day

When at 27, should behave 27
When at 18, should behave 18
When at 40, should behave 40

hmmm... sounds a lil odd to say, but true.

We forgot that we behaved just our age till about we were 12 yrs old, and yet we grew!

How come suddenly the equation changed, that behaving ahead of your age became kewl. Just imagine if you behave like a 10 yrs old, when you were 10 months old - hmm, the beauty of being a baby would have been lost.

So, when I am 27 and behave like a 30 yr old, the beauty of being young is lost.

When I behave ahead or behind my age, irrespective of how ppl percieve, we lose the charm of being at that age, at that time - a day gone when I am 27, is a day gone forever.

I believe, somewhere along the growth path, we have exchanged the meaning of "being responsible" to "acting old". "Being responsible does not mean acting old.

Being responsible is being responsible, and thats imbibed over the years of life, upbringing, education, value system and faith. Just be responsible, don't need to act, and win the laurels of a million who really don't matter in the long run.

All that I am saying - Live life, for this day will never come back ever again. Be responsible, so that you will not look on yesterday with a regret, that you did not plan for tomorrow.

If not, the biggest regret will be - I wish I did that when I was young!
Dont confuse being responsible to acting old!

Credits to my dear friend Sam, for some of the thoughts in this.

I hope you'll imbibe all that you wrote.. rather than try and be someone more than your chronological age ... try and save the moments that are left and capture the beauty and its essence by being just you zulu.
