Growing Old...

welll...i m growing old now... ;-) ...i had this feeling yesterday...something triggered this feeling ....i dont know what....i have sm years of my youth left..but then i realised that middle age and old age are a much larger part of our lives than the youth part...and still we give up so soon....in their middle/old age,most ppl start thinking that they know everything that is there to know...that they have experienced almost everything that life can offer....this actually changes their attitude to the "i've been there" attitude...they are no longer excited about life...this limits their growth....i remember once i read somewhere that the abitlity of a child to learn a new language is way too greater than an adult...this just shows the difference in the curiosity level of a child and an adult..the way children lead their lives is an example for all of us...the way they see each day as a new day with limitless possibilities....but as we grow old we lose this perspective and come to arrive at the conclusion that "we know everything"....so i think the best way to grow old is to stay young or keep the child in you alive....so that u keep learning and growing in every way...

Bingo...Even i feel all the time that something has gone wrong with me.My attitude has changed from aggresive towards learning to lethargic one...I lack all the vigour u need to get something .....But then i feel that maybe its cuz of staying at home since 4-5 months that has made me so....

Guess things will change once i join next month :o)

children r selfish also ... they care for their fun all the time ... they dont know diff between right and wrong ... moreover among children also there is wide variety ... soft, tough, hard, dominatin, submissive, etc ...

the attitude "we know everything" comes in front of children only and for whom it is quiet true :-)

For most of our problems, if we observe a child - we can find the solution :) Agree with you, when that thirst for knowledge recedes, thats when life begins to take a backward step.

hmmm...its more a matter of attitude. if u want to learn something new u must have the attitude to learn it.

oh, and dont even think that u r growing old...there still many young years left right in front of u...so enjoy!
