"With age comes wisdom"
The other day, I was talking to my friend and asked her the biggest lesson she had learned in life and she replied with, "All that glitters ain't gold". This is one of the reasons I am incorporating cliches in this entry, because I have noticed as I get older and encounter obstacles it seems to be the best way people know how to console you or encourage you, and though I scoff at them, I have come to realise why they are cliches, because they really do hold some weight to them, so I wasn't surprised when she replied with a cliche, of course with an explanation to back it up.
Anyways, back to getting older I don't know about y'all but I swear as I get older, I get more confused and the older I get the more unanswered questions I encounter. As I often tell people, my twenties have been so confusing for me, it's not even right. Lately, I find myself yearning for the days when every decision didn't seem so weighted and with dire consequences.
-One minute I was gallivanting around to parties, with my bare belly, open back shirts, next minute I merely pick one up and I am told it's not appropriate for someone my age :(.
-Suddenly, I am not just working for a paycheck anymore, I am wondering where my career is going, where I will be in 5 years(cliche interview question), what business I can sink my hooks into?.
-I am not just dating for fun anymore, looking at a bobo and just wondering what his lips taste like, (oook i still do that, let's not get ahead of ourselves here) but in addition to that now I am also wondering if this is someone I can stand for a long duration in my life.
- I just don't go to church because my parents told me so and I memorised the simple prayer book. Now I have questions, some days I just don't go to church, my faith goes up and down like a rollercoaster at six flags
Yowzer! someone give me a simple serum before my head explodes. As for me, the biggest lesson I have learned in life is "Life is (sure as hell) not black and white"..there are just too many grey areas in life men, I can't even believe there was a time when I thought everything was black and white. Anyways as a friend of mine always says "Life is simple, it's we humans that complicate things", maybe that's the case on my end, but somehow I don't think so. Please do share your favorite and most annoying cliches and your "getting older" experiences, so I don't feel like I am alone. Have a lovely week ahead beautiful people.
PS - Oh I wanted to incorporate a song for each post, preferably something that relates, lemme know what y'all think. For this entry, I shall post John Mayer's - '83(as in 1983)
