Birthdays have taught me that through life you can choose one out of two roads; to grow old, or to grow up. You grow old when you go with the flow, when you choose safety, when you are afraid to take risks because you feel "too old for this shit". You let yourself grow old when you lose hope, when you don't believe in tremendous meanings like love, faith, peace, equality. When you stop fighting for your dreams. Sure there will be ups and downs -that's the fun part I guess- but I decided never to grow old. Be brave enough to grow up and mature. Be playful, be optimistic, look on the bright side and things will rise and shine. Grow up and accept that life is life, discuss with kids, listen to the weak, imitate the courageous ones, sympathise, listen, understand. At least keep trying. Αnd if there is one thing I have learnt through the course of my short life is that life always gives you back what you offered. Ι'm growing up and I love it. Wishing you all the best from the bottom of my heart.
