Another AB batchmate, Arden, celebrated his 22nd birthday last night in a bash he chose to grace in Watering Hole, EDSA SHangri-La. ‘Twas a fun day since I got to meet new people such as Kid (a former Pinoy Idol contestant) and Mae (Arden’s friend). We had a couple of drinks and had a blastful evening that ended in small talk with my friend, Llewie.
AT this point, being 22 gets sucked into my system; the rumor is true, we are not getting any younger and life ain’t getting longer. Life is one beautiful spun yarn of experiences and challenges that construct us to become people. Without these experiences we are living, yet lifeless.
I wonder why people celebrate harder as they grow old? Perhaps because as we age, we begin to realize and come to terms with the inevitable reality that our chances of getting more tomorrows diminish; we begin to contend with another pressing reality, which is passing. And because we know that at one point passing will come, we celebrate hard, and try to lick the best of the moments while they are there; while they are still real.
Birthdays are beautiful moments to celebrate, but are nothing but tombstone markings when we die.So we must all celebrate while the tomorrows keep on coming. Let us all celebrate like there are only a few of it left.
