I was just thinking of the phrase that a cat has 9 lives. Do we ever for one moment think that every time we go into a new year, we actually have another life? We often take it for granted how each year goes and passes by. You may be wondering why I had this sudden moment of reflection. Well when you turn 30, you hear of people either complaining or thinking how great it is going to be going into a new decade that supposedly promises much!
Well it’s strange to think, but I feel like I have had 30 lives. I mean lives in a good way. We may not realize it at all, but each year we turn a new leaf we are actually a new person that has grown more. It’s like we have been rewarded a new life! But some may be pessimistic and say that it doesn’t always turn out for the best. It’s not about whether it turns out for the best or not. It’s about how we see a new year in our life and how we will approach it going forward.
So when you see yourself turning 30, 40, 50 etc think about another life you have in the coming year! Celebrate living longer than a cat!
This is Funjabi Guy wishing you a safe and happy weekend! Till next Friday.
