Age is just a number ...

Age is just a number...

Heard this many times from friends..
Oh I wish I was a child again.
Oh I want to become a kid again.

I know its the joy of innocence,
of being let go at the mischief,
of all demands being fulfilled.

How about growing old then?
Accomplishments...
Experience...
Wisdom...
Stories!!

This has been a lingering thought for a while with me and .. and this is what I feel about it..

As we grow up, we become wise and more so we become cognizant of who we are. Each day helps us understand ourselves better. We start dissecting our actions, reactions, decisions. For some people that is not happy . I for one , do not like this person that I am starting to know. This person has flaws and is not meeting my expectations. I did not think about myself when I was a child because there were so many others who took care of me.

And that is why growing up is so unpleasant for some. I wish I could go back to being that ignorant child, who did not know any better. But "if wishes were horses beggars would ride."

I am all for remaining a kid forever :) , growing up is just boring and too much hard work and I don't enjoy either :)
