The Stuff That Will Matter Most In The End Is What You DO Have (Not What You Don’t)
If you feel fulfilled in your life, you will simply not obsess about how old you are. It just won’t happen. I usually end up obsessing about my age and I don’t tend to like what I see in the mirror ONLY when I have nothing else going on in my life. Thankfully, the last time that’s happened was when I was 18 years old. But the point is that THIS CAN LITERALLY HAPPEN AT ANY AGE. Thus the phenomenon of all my drop dead gorgeous 20-something friends obsessing over the deterioration of their looks as opposed to throwing an ongoing party at the fact that they get to write complete sentences while looking like freaking super models.
Appreciating where you are today is the big triumph of life. Fully realizing that wherever you are right now is where you are and seeing all the beautiful things in that, while also looking forward to building a road towards wherever you want to be, is entirely the point.
