“Age is a question of mind over matter. If you don’t mind, it doesn’t matter.”
As Yoko Ono said, “Some people are old at 18 and some are young at 90.” What is this difference? Being open-minded, I think. Open to new ideas, new experiences, new learning, a new vision for the future, a new game to play.
General Douglas MacArthur said, “You are as young as your faith, as old as your doubt; as young as your confidence, as old as your fear; as young as your hope, as old as your despair. In the central place of every heart, there is a recording chamber; so long as it receives messages of beauty, hope, cheer and courage, you remain young. When the wires are all down and your heart is covered with snows of pessimism and the ice of cynicism, then and only then are you grown old.”
I believe limitations is not natural, you’re not born to be restricted to a certain level or progress; either it’s caused by supernatural powers, or our own selves. When there is an idea to work on; we usually become too tired to make a move…. Believe me, age doesn’t stop anyone who has a good ambition to exploit. Remember this! No one is too old nor too young to die. Which also implies that no one is too old nor too young to achieve greater things.
Sometimes age is not required in dealing with things, but maturity. Many people are 50 years and above but they’re not yet matured while a teenager of 17-19 can be more matured than that of 50. some of you will say that am talking nonsense, but when you reason with me; you will surely understand.
The way we react to many things determined how matured we are, not how old we are. In comparison to that, I will simply say; age is just a number while maturity is wisdom. Maturity is not about a certain changes in our body; but it’s our mental reasoning.
Never allow your age to limit your ability, instead, take an advantage of that and exploit without limitation. Your age doesn’t matter, what matters is that you want to achieve new things and make yourself available to learn all the time.
