Remember when life appeared simple. Days seemed to go at just the right pace. You worked, but you still made time for fun and recreation in your spare time. What happened to those days?
The days have not gotten shorter, they still occur in 24 hour intervals. The only thing that changed is you. When did you get so serious? What happened to the sound of your own laughter? Where is that infectious smile and positive attitude?
Growing older does not mean transforming into a stoic grinch. The fact that you are aging is all the more reason to enjoy this life! The older you get the more you realize how little time you have and why it's so important to cherish every single moment.
Lighten up. Enjoy all there is to enjoy. You deserve to have fun. You are entitled to all the pleasures that life has to offer. Live it up!
