27 years. That is close to 10,000 days in this planet. Is this an achievement to brag about?
Considering the haunting fragility of life, I think the answer is yes. And of course sometimes life can be a curse than a blessing.
When I was in high school I used to think that death, deadliest diseases, getting old, earthquakes, accidents etc. are only for others and not for me and my nearest and dearest. It was just fancy news to read in newspapers and to watch in Television. It took some time but I realize the incredible uncertainty of life when I lose some loved ones.
So my major achievement in life is that I may (not sure of course) complete 10,000 days on earth. I know many of you have touched this milestone way before me. Congratulations! But hey, you are older than me… I’m just kidding. Because I always believe that the likelihood of death is the same for a 2 year old kid and an 80 year old man. We don’t know who will say adios first. So let’s don’t take anything in our life for granted (which I always forget).
So what I have learned? Because 27 years is a big deal (isn’t it?). But let me tell you some basics (complicated basics) that I never took the time to learn.
I am still not sure why we are not falling out of earth if it is moving at 1000 miles per hour?
Who named all the little things on earth and told us to call them accordingly?
How we started talking in different languages? And it is fascinating that according to Google there are more than 6000 spoken languages in the world.
Why my girlfriend doubt me and how complicated is her brain?
I am lazy you may think. But you know, Google is not giving me the right answer for everything. You check one query and a truckload of pages will come up. So I stopped seeking these questions of mine.
My apologies for too many words. I just woke up today with these ridiculous thoughts and I was awfully sad that I am 27. Not because I think I am growing up but because of the fragile existence that we all are in. And without comprehending this we are fighting, murdering, mistreating, harassing, quarreling …
I think, in the far future, us, human beings will be considered us some comic beings lived on this planet. You and I will be some proud members in the extinct species. Even though I am writing this, in that back of my mind I hope that it won’t happen.
