“The idea is to die young as late as possible.”
Read it again. Die young….as late as possible. Seems sensible. Sit on the phrase for a bit. Think it through. I believe that analysis of your life, daily actions, future goals, etc. is always a healthy checkpoint to make sure you are on your right track, whatever that may be. This quote seemed to be the basis of my thoughts this week.
I have this growing fear of becoming “an adult” *gasp* (Graduation within the next year has been the pleasant reminder that a big kid job is in very near future). But is that a bad thing? If you live your life by the mentality of the quote above, is growing up really that scary? I don’t believe so. Now if I could have it my way, I would find something to do everyday that involves meeting lots of people, dressing how I please, travel a couple times a month, and have the beach somewhere in the foreground. I haven’t figured out how all that can be encompassed in one job yet. But hey, at least a youthful sentiment is ingrained in what I want in my life.
But how do you apply this to your life? I have been re-thinking about this topic for days now. Are you? If anything, just think about the quote. I see youth within the eyes of many: my 80 year old father all the way to the 5 year old girl playing in the park. But can you maintain it? Is it possible for all of us to maintain it? I don’t know. I guess we can try. These have been my crazy thoughts for the week.
