13….21….25…30….40…. Numbers go on and on, however, a numbers is just that, a number. One can distinguish between a number that has more value than another. For example 25 cents is greater than 1 cent. Numbers are used to count, keep track of time, items, money or the years in ones life.
I’ve noticed that throughout life, regardless of the age a person turns, the world seems insinuate that there are certain things that one must accomplish during those monumental years. At 1yr… you should know how to walk and start having small conversations, even though they are somewhat unintelligible. At 13 we finally become teenagers and are one step closer to adulthood, at 21 (if you reside within the united states) you are finally able to drink alcoholic beverages, you get the point.
Well, today I am turning 25. Some may consider this a monumental age. I have heard numerous stories of how some of my friends had a partial meltdown when it was their 25th birthday. I however, don’t feel like “freaking” out. My age is just a number and although every year I get older, I’ve learned that it’s not the number that should decide what things in your life are important. What is important are the things that you learn between the time till your next birthday. Regardless of the age we turn we will always be moving, changing and growing. So as I say goodbye to 24 I’m excited to see where I journey this next year.
