MY LIFE... through the years

In five year’s time, I will be a Golden Girl. Yes, I will be 50 years old in a matter of 5 years. And I will wonder… “How time flies?”

In five year’s time, I will mark a milestone for myself. Yes, I will look forward to it as a great achievement. And I will ask… “What have I done?”

In five year’s time, I will create new pages for the next chapters of my life. Yes, I will be happy to travel down memory lane and look back what my life had been. And I will doubt… “Will I have the time?”

Life is so short. What is 50 years to a person who has more to achieve? Time is fleeting. What is 50 years to a life lived to the fullest? Every moment is precious. What is 50 years to a person whose life is yet to unfold?

I have been thinking… what have I done in the past 45 years of my life? No. I refuse to grow old… without remembering how my childhood was like. No. I will not brag about my achievements… without recalling what my frustrations were. No. I will not stop achieving my goal… without looking back at the failures I had.

There is no secret to a happy and successful life… unless you are blind. There is such thing as failure… unless you perceive it as a hurdle to achieve. There is nothing that can stop one to succeed… unless you fail to believe.

My life is not perfect… it is just perfectly normal. My life is a bed of roses… with thorns and all. And my life is insignificant compared to famous or notorious people… but it is significantly worth living.

"Life is short and forty five years are not enough.
But forty five years is long enough to know how I was blessed."

"Forty five years is enough for me to appreciate all my blessings.
Thank You for the 45 years of my life."

The formula for a happy life is obvious… live!

It is very difficult to have two- forty five years in our life.

This first one must worth a celebration.

Do enjoy your next coming one.
