Every year, I dread this day. A day when I take stock of my achievements, attempts and failures. But I guess this year too is different.

So many things happened last year. I did the right thing for some people - put family before my career, principles ahead of money, comfort of others ahead of mine. The priorities did change, but I still did some of the things I wanted - travelled a bit, read a pile of books and just hung out with friends for most of the time. Some things caused me to sit up and evaluate my life - they weren't nice things, but I'm better for having weathered them. In short, it does feel good to be twenty five !

And I got some interesting advice today: "Act your age. Drop the 'been there, done that' attitude and stop acting like you're 35".

I will, oh ... I will.

Old age is too high a price to pay for maturity.
