I Wish I Were….

In My Opinion

When we are young, and even today we think “Damn I cannot wait until I’m (insert age here).” Often times we look towards an age because supposedly everyone is more mature and the high school drama would be a mere memory. We hope to grow more mature and NOT throw tantrums or NOT lose money or to NOT be told what to do from a family member because you are old enough to make such decisions. We also look up to this age to gain things whether material or not. One thing, however, that is ALWAYS over looked is: although we cannot wait to be “(insert age here)” we first have to be every other age before that. Age is like an onion, just because you are the outer layer, doesn’t mean the other layers underneath aren’t there for you to learn from. As for me today I’m 19 but I am also 18 17 16 15 14 13 12 11 10 9 8 7 6 5 4 3 2 and 1.

    I wish I were… younger! Not that I’m old or anything (early 30s), but man did I have fun in my 20s. I’d prefer to go back to 26, when I just got the job I love, making good money and having plenty of freedom to do whatever. Now taking care of responsibilities takes up most of my time, but I still manage to fit some fun in there.

    I remember in high school I couldn’t wait to be able to grow a full on beard. Thinking how much older and cooler it would make me look, being able to have a goatee. Not thinking how I would have to shave that mofo every day for the rest of my life.
