On Turning 25.

Train windows, helping you think about life since the invention of trains.

So yesterday, I turned 25. Well and truly in my mid 20s now.

As you might recall from my post last year, I’m not one who particularly enjoy birthdays. Each one seems to be a reminder that time is passing and I still haven’t achieved anything.

Somehow, this time it’s different.

This time, I felt at peace.

25 is an interesting age, because you realise that whilst you’re not exactly old, you’re no longer that young anymore.

I’ve realised that I am one of the lucky ones, for I somehow managed to do exactly what I wanted to do when I was young. Not a lot of people get the chance to say that, mostly because of the fears that hold them back.

You only live once, but if you do it right, once is enough. – Mae West.

I guess after all these years of struggle, it has taught me that life is exactly what you yourself make out of it, and I did what I could to make the best out of it.

So next 5 years, what’s it gonna be like?

Can’t say for certain, but something tells me that it’s about to get really interesting. 😉

Will leave you with a quote which really sums up the state I am in, I do wish you all the best and make the best out of whatever you have got going. =)

I am learning to understand rather than immediately judge or to be judged. I cannot blindly follow the crowd and accept their approach. I will not allow myself to indulge in the usual manipulating game of role creation. Fortunately for me, my self-knowledge has transcended that and I have come to understand that life is best to be lived and not to be conceptualized. I am happy because I am growing daily and I am honestly not knowing where the limit lies. To be certain, every day there can be a revelation or a new discovery. I treasure the memory of the past misfortunes. It has added more to my bank of fortitude. – Bruce Lee


  1. Happy Birthday 🙂
