Too old to be curious!?

Hello people of the internet!
It’s quite a sunny day today; birds are chirping kids are waddling off to their schools, life is good and its all rainbows and unicorns at my side of the world. BUT! I can’t seem to pull a thought off my mind and it is quite interfering with my propitious state of mind, with which I am not okay at all! You may be wondering what in the world is so disturbing and to answer your question my friend I’ll say “IT’S AGE!!!”Tell me why everything is now a day’s age related!? WHY!? WHY!? WHY!?1

I hear people saying these lines way too frequently now a day “I wonder what it would be like to do a certain thing. Oh well whatever! I can’t do that. I am too old for it what will people say!?” Ahhh! This what will people think of me sentence is so irritating for me. At this point the urge to throw my brains in a blender is way too strong! I stop at this notion and think why, just why? If you are old and curious about certain things why can’t you just go and check it out.2

Listen darling! Let me break it down for you. All of the mankind is different from each other. There is no set path for all of us to walk upon. We all follow different paths. It’s time we start breaking ourselves free of stereotypes and exploring the new stuff. So if you are fifty and want to do something new with your life, I say you go for it and explore your options. If you are ninety and you want to move to Vegas, I say you do it.3

You see it is curiosity that makes you do things. It’s curiosity that helps you explores. It’s curiosity that reveals revelations upon you about yourself. Curiosity is natural. Learning stops at no age and to refuse your right to be curious at any age is wrong. Its stops your learning. And I don’t think so that learning should be age related. Learn whatever you can, wherever you can, whenever you can and from whomever you can. So be curious, dig deep, think out of the box and don’t be scared of acting upon it regardless of your age.4

Happy breaking stereotypes!
Much love
