What's My Age Again

Everyday, we go about on our regular routines, whether going to school, going to work or just being a plain easy goer... Some of us, like to go out and have fun in clubs, dancing around and getting drunk... Some would go shopping and keep on spending his/her money and most of the times it's not their money that they are spending...



This are just some of the things that other people do on a regular basis, too busy on everything and anything that they do... But are these the important ones???

Have we ever stopped and think of our future?? What is the next thing that will happen to college graduates after school; will they have any work, will get that dream job of theirs, will they pass the board or bar exams or will they even finish college...

Have we all noticed how time fly's... How each moment passes us by without us noticing it... How we are being left alone by our friends, going to abroad or starting their own family... And even some of them died of early age...

Have we even thought of what will happen to us a day after, a week after, a month after or even a year or even decades... Maybe it's to think of our future, of our plans, of our dreams and goals...

Maybe it's time to think of "What's My Age Again??"... Because we are not getting any younger anymore...

Before I used to think that I would not grow old... That I would reach that certain stage of my life were in I would not have to make those big decisions in life... That I would not have to live by my self, start my own family... That I would have to fend for myself... This things are past, we are now at the present and we must think of the future...

I have started asking this question to myself everytime since I stepped in college... I was always hopefull of my future that I could achieve my dreams and goals in life... But as time fly's by, decision makings are getting harder and harder each and every time...

After graduating I keep on saying to myself, "you are no longer young anymore"... I must make do what is left in my time... That I have so little time to plan for my future... To have a steady relationship with my GIRL... To have a good job, later on have my own business and then start my own family...

I have attended numerous weddings before, weddings of my friends and relatives... I always wanted to have that kind of feeling, finally ending with the one that you truly loved... I also have attended numerous Christening and being a god father to those childrens...

And now, for the first time in my life I have attended a wedding were in I am one of the Groomsmen... Well, with no special participation... But the sad part is that I was late and failed to march in the isle... Sorry for my partner... Hehehehe... Being inside the church realizing my part in the wedding of my former college blockmate... It flashes back to me once again, "I am no longer a kid","I am now doing big parts in ceremonies"...





Then I also remembered that I am now a Grandfather (LOLO), to my nephews son... Damn, I really am getting older...

This are the things that I am now considering and making me think twice of the things of what I should be doing now and what I should do tomorrow...

it's never about the numbers. i think it's more on how we choose to live our lives no matter our age.

naco axel you're too young to be feeling that way. hehe. live life to the fullest! enjoy your youth (kung makapagsalita ako akala mo antanda ko na ano?).
i've a closetfull of gowns from weddings i've attended. some were hideous, others nice. pero the best part about looking at them (the gowns), it brings back memories of those weddings.
darating ka rin dyan soon. wag ka magmadali. and if ever you do decide to take the plunge, i'll be willing to be your wedding coordinator. i love weddings! hehe.

axel said...

@ Goddess >> Yeah, numbers are nothing compared to what you have accomplished in life... But the question is, what have we accomplished so far in our age??

Is it worthwhile or a waste of time?? Drama ko noh... Hehehe...

@ Antuken >> Oo nga, lam ko bata pa ko pero... I don't want to overthink na bata pa talaga ako... Planning and preparations need ko talaga if I want to really live my life to the fullest...

Hahaha... Hindi naman po ako magmamadali sa kasal, gusto ko nga sa tamang panahon talaga... Naku dami nyo ng magiging wedding coordinator... hehehe...

@ Chroneicon >> Tae ka... Walang uban yun...

@ Leyn >> Lolo ka dyan... Hahahaha

@ Emoterang Nurse >> Salamat sa pagbati... Oo, ganito talaga kapag tumatanda ka na... Tanungin mo na lang nararamdaman ni LV ngayon... Hehehe.. Peace...

Time flies soo fast talaga... Kaya dapat wag din nating sayangin kung saan saang bagay... Enjoy life while preparing for your own future and your future family...
