Now that I have my trusty new GPS device, I am taking all sorts of routes to work, I normally never dare take, as I always seem to get lost. Today as I passed Jalan Sultan Ismail, I saw this one Ad by OCBC, i think which went “Growing Old is Compulsory, Growing Up Optional”. How true. Each year, I know I am getting older and older. I feel it in my fingers, I feel it in bones. The ankle and knees tend to hurt after a workout, the back and neck feel the strain after a day at work. All signs of aging, and yet I wonder many a times how much I have “grown up” over the years. I am still quite childish in some of my ways, especially when it comes to arguments and wanting things my way.  I still pout at God, and make a fit when he gently nudges me and prompts my spirit to do things a specific way. I rebel sometimes, only to apologize later. I never seem to learn the lesson that “Obedience is better than sacrifice”. Growing up seems to be the hardest thing to do.

  1. Don’t worry, no one ever truly grows up. We all just mature at different ages. I don’t know if I will ever be THAT mature… I still throw my fits. hah
