Most people (myself included) get a bit anxious when one celebrates or will celebrate a birthday. This birthday anxiety leads to thoughts about death or things like that. Basically, one will feel like he/she is closer to death as he/she celebrates a birthday. Conversely, a birthday can trigger one's confidence to start a new full year of one's life to make the most of the year ahead. Just when you celebrate a birthday, you immediately sort of look back at how far you've come and look ahead to a hopefully positive and prospective year of your life.
I enjoy being playful and upbeat no matter what age I am or what age I will become. It is part of a personality I've taken on and adopted. You only live once- so make the most of it. Remain youthful and fun (and sometimes... a bit silly) in all that you do in life. You may be getting older, but don't let this stop you from being and feeling like a big kid. At times, I still think of myself as an old teenager rather than a guy about to be a decade away from the 40s age range. Just like the Toys R Us song goes: "I don't wanna grow up!" Reality and responsibility says that I am an adult. But really, I'm just more of a big kid rather than a grown adult. I'm still growing and still making mistakes (and learning from them).
Nothing wrong with being a big kid, an old teenager, a full-grown baby, or whatever young-old analogy you want to use!
I hope I've positively wasted your time with this blog post. Take care of yourself and thank you for reading!
