Does Aging mean You’re Growing?

Poems and Things

Today I am 20.

Well, yesterday if you want to be all technical, but that doesn’t change the fact that I am older now. It’s a little silly to think that just because our birthday falls on one day, our life skips forward an entire year. In reality, every day we age. Every day we grow and (hopefully) mature, and learn. This makes everyday a holiday though, right?

This makes me wonder… does age matter? Or is the real important question how we spend our time? Maybe the thing we should really classify ourselves as, is how much we grow during our lifetime.

Today is the opportunity. So –

..because today is the first day of the rest of your life
