Reflections As I Turn 40

Thank you everybody for your Birthday wishes. As I turn 40 today, I am reminded at how time flies and how short our time truly is. It seems like yesterday that I was just 20. With a blink of an eye, 10 years go by and you are 30. The next thing you know, another 10 years go by and you are 40. I know that with another few blinks…50,60,70,80… Times Up

Knowing that our time is no limited year on earth, I constantly remind myself to live each day to the fullest, with no regrets and without holding onto any resentment or anger to anyone or anything.

Knowing that my time is limited, I make sure that I do not waste it on negative thoughts or harbour negative feelings. I make sure that I enjoy and appreciate every moment of this short journey, the ups and the downs, the celebrations and the challenging struggles.

In the words of the late Steve Jobs, ‘Our time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma, which is living with the results of other people’s expectations. Have the courage to follow your heart no matter where it takes you.’

There is really no point in fearing failure or fearing embarrassment because in the end, we are all going to die. So, pursue your dreams, follow your heart, make the very most of your life and eventually leave behind the world in much much better place than when you found it. If at least one life has breathed a little easier because you have lived, that is what t means to have succeeded.
