The age of invincibility



Last week I turned 20. This is a little note I wrote to myself, a reminder of what the truth is and what growing up means. I can hardly believe I have been on the earth 20 years. I don’t know where I thought I would be at 20 but I don’t think I expected to be where I am today. Good thing God's the one in control of this messy thing I call my life.

The age of invincibility
The age of invincibility is that stage between losing all your childish wonder and gaining all of your world-weariness. You are young, You don’t have to worry about your body decaying quite yet. Whatever you set your mind to do you can do it. This stage in your life is passing by quickly, so very quickly. You’ll never be this young, this sharp, this strong, this able again. Of course with age you will gain many new companions such as patience, and experience but you need to remember you are in your prime RIGHT NOW. You are living the time of your life that you always dreamed of. I know you thought 20 would be so much older, so much smarter, so much more adult and put together but the truth is it’s not. Life is gradual so embrace the days you’ve been given and prepare yourself for the tomorrows that will come. Don’t let your youth slip away wrapped up in your bed or enamored with your computer. Go out and LIVE your life. Embrace all of the opportunities that come your way. Don’t be afraid. You are strong. You are smart. You are beautiful. Don’t let anything or anyone hold you back especially not your failures. Failures make people stronger when they choose to get back up and press on. So get stronger and don’t hold back. Never be afraid to ask questions even if they seem silly you’ll only become smarter because of it.

  1. I know I cried when I turned 20. I didn't feel 20, I didn't look 20. But 20 never discriminates.

    Thank you for enlightening me.

    First of all, Happy 20th! My 20th held many changes and transitions for me. But, it has been the best year of my life so far. Enjoy it and continue to pursue Him and seek after Him. ;)
