Last Day of 31st

Dear self,

This will be your last day of being thirty-one.

You can never go back to it but you can always look back to the lessons learned along the way.

Enjoy your last day of being this old or young….however you prefer to see it.

As the song goes, I’m thirty-three for a moment

In this case, you’re thirty-one for a moment and before you know it, you’re a year older.

Moments can go by fast.

Remember, not everyone gets to be this old so be proud of it.

As you move forward, may you slowly let go of the fears that are holding you back.

Let that self love grow

Continue to work on that self-esteem and never give up

Accept rejection and failure

See the lesson in them and also seek the lesson in every success.

May the last day of being a thirty-one year young be a fruitful one.

Cheers to you!

Age

A new age

A new chapter

You’ve gone through the pages

One after the other

On this new stage

May the seas be smoother

I’ll Be Fifty

Twenty years from now seems quite far

But not as far as it was before

Creeping slowly

People ask me

Where I think I’ll be.

Do I worry or should I worry?

That will lead me nowhere

I know for sure I’ll climb that stage

And I will welcome that age,

If given a chance.

As Jason Mraz said, I won’t worry my life away

By then, I’d be happy to have been fifty.

At 30

She rejoices at being given the years

While most may equate age with fears.

She seems to walk with more flair

As if she’s dancing on air.

Her eyes of brown dance in the sun

A new age, a new decade, has begun.

Had Hope

My 20 something self did hope

But I’ve reached the end of my rope

I never found him and he never came

It was like a cat and mouse game

So it all ends the same.

Now I’ve embraced my alone-ness

No longer scared of sadness

Commitment is on the past for me

For I had hoped before

And I think that’s enough, even more

Getting

Getting older,

Getting younger,

Getting fatter, 

Getting slimmer,

Each year is different but one thing remains constant 

And that is the fact that another year has been added to this life of mine.
I raise my glass to what has been given to me

May the years of getting older be years of getting wiser

Birthday Candles

I turn around and see
I am twenty-eight today
I am twenty-eight today
Hooray for me!

It’s grand
It’s joyous
It’s heart warming
It tickles my soul

See, we only get to be one age at a time
Only for a year
So might as well celebrate it
Enjoy it while it lasts

And so I turn around and see
And realize how blessed I am to be
Twenty-eight, today

I’m Getting Old

I don’t like overcrowded places
And partying ’til dawn.
I don’t care to meet too many faces,
Sometimes it’s such a bore and I just want to yawn.

I spend more days at home
And work on my blog
I still socialize though not like the much younger years
Maybe it’s just me
Or maybe I’m just getting old
