My Own Pace

Life is a tragedy to those who feel, but a comedy to those who think.*

That's probably the reason why my life is a contradiction-- a tragic comedy or a comical tragedy. Some say I think too much. Others say I feel too much. Maybe I was supposed to be that way just to even things out... or else I'd go crazy.

Age only slows down those who never had the courage to walk at their own pace.*

In a few days, I'll officially step into the age called "the late 20's". I might be placed in a different bracket altogether, usually the 26-30 bracket whenever I'd fill up forms, questionnaires, surveys, etc. (think "Sex and the City"). When I was a teenager, I used to see this age bracket as the optimum age to get married, have kids and "settle down". I thought by this time I would have done 50% of the things I wanted to do before I die. Now that I'm here, I realized it's much easier to dream than to make these dreams come true. That's fine. Since they say life begins at 40, I have a lot of time to prepare for that. So, I'm just gonna go with the flow and make the most out of what life brings me. Walk at my own pace. I guess where I am is where I'm supposed to be.
