Forever young, I wanna be forever young. Do you really wanna live forever?
Don’t we all sometimes wish that we could just freeze at a certain age and go on living like that forever? The age I always look back to is 17. Life was just so easy and fun and I lived every moment to the fullest. Why does it change? Because we grow up! We have to take responsibility for ourselves, for the decisions we make and for the actions we take. Life isn’t as easy anymore as it was before and it changes faster than you can say fun!
I remember going to school, nothing bothering me. I had my friends, didn’t care about school too much and life was a great, big party! I miss those days when I danced the night away and didn’t think about tomorrow. When I just kissed a boy without thinking about consequences. When I didn’t care about school, because I was sure I’m gonna be rich and famous anyway! But life changes and you realize that you cannot live like this forever. You have to wake up and grow up because that’s just the way it is.
Even though I’m still pretty young, I already look back and miss the good old days when it all was just fun and games. Today I am always worried about something or somebody. Relationships, career, family, something is always on my mind and I cannot turn it off, no matter how hard I try. I learned what really matters and I grew up.
However, I still go out with my friends but it’s rather watching a movie than partying all night and getting wasted every weekend. And of course I’m still interested in boys, but it’s rather the search for real love than kissing every guy who looks cute.
Life goes by and you have to go with it. You cannot escape from getting older but you can always keep a little piece of childhood in yourself. Never take yourself too seriously and no matter how old you are…you’re never too old for some fun!
