When we were all younger, we desperately tried to look and act older. We were all in such a rush to become adults that before we knew it, our childhood was gone. Yes, just like that.

The acne and the bad hair days have slowly been replaced by crow's feet and grey hair for days!

How ironic that we, as children had longed to be older and when we finally reached the status of ''adult', we wished that we were kids again.

It really is true when they say that "Youth is wasted on the young."

When you inevitably wake up one morning and look in the mirror and say "Wow, I'm old." That is the point in your life that you have to make a decision. The one that will shape your remaining days.

Will you start to wallow in self-pity and wish you had all that time back? Or will you finally learn to accept life for what it is and just enjoy it.

There is no law that states that when you get older, you can no longer be young in spirit, learn new things and still have fun. We all have to try and remember that.

More importantly, slow down. Take a breath.

Enjoy life and what it has to offer. We all know where we will eventually end up, so why not enjoy the trip and really check out the scenery?

What's the hurry?
