You don't feel any different as you go through the years. I don't feel any different now than I did when I was fifteen, or twenty or thirty. My attitudes have Changed, my perspectives on lots of issues has changed, my knowledge has improved, but I still feel like I'm the same person that I've always been.
I'm reminded that I'm older now is that I have a CD player in my car. I have bluetooth and all sorts of modern extras, but there's a CD player. As chance would have it, I found a zipped up car CD case in the attic. It was filled with CDs I'm Burned from 2001 until about 2007. Some of them were audio CDs and some where MP3 CDs. I've been listening to them on the way back and forth to work and its been a blast. I know every word to almost every old song and I even know which song is coming next on CDs I burned eighteen years ago. When I'm driving to my brand new job, with all this new newly built muscle, in a little sporty car, listening to a case of CDs, I have a hard time reminding myself that I'm not a young man.
The funny thing about life is that things happen in cycles. You'll find yourself repeating patterns in your life. There'll be spells when things are a bit flat, when you're not sure what the point to the whole thing is, but then a change will come. When that change comes you'll find a familiarity to all the new happenings. Sometimes I wonder if a new Cycle is the universe's way of giving us another go; another chance to see if we can do something different, better. Maybe with the passing of years, and with some newfound wisdom, we can make more of a familiar situation than we would have years ago.
Anyway, it could all be wishful thinking. It might all be my own way of trying to find comfort in all these new happenings, especially giving my propensity for following the familiar.
In any event, a positive outlook to any situation can't be a bad thing.
