This is a post on how to feel younger. In fact, I guarantee if you follow these simple steps, you can feel as young as fifteen again. Truly.
Step one : Grab a great friend and head out on a grand adventure.
For example, you and one of your best friends drive roughly 8 hours to a fun locale (this trip actually should have taken only 4, but somehow we went the wrong direction) you listen to loud music, take random stops like seeing the world’s largest spruce tree, and laugh hysterically about how you managed to drive 4 hours out of the way and not realize it. Finally reaching your destination, the remote city of Forks, Wa, home to Bella, Edward and Jacob from the Twilght series books.
Step 2 : Believe in something Silly.
This step is very important, because as we age, it is often frowned upon to believe in something silly. Like Vampires. You don’t really have to believe, but you must lighten your heart and not be afraid of judgement. Go ahead, get bitten.
Step 3 : Let go of your inhibitions.
Remember when you were a kid and your parents would pull over on the side of the highway because you really had to GO? Well, I don’t suggest you loose all your inhibitions, but go ahead and have fun in public. When you are smiling and having a good time, odds are those around you will soon join in. Suddenly you make new friends and are having the time of your life, not remembering you are actually 38 years old, instead feeling like you are on a middle school field trip.
This photo below is a prime example of step number three. NEVER EVER be afraid to climb a tree with a cardboard cut out Edward Cullen and have your photo taken. You will never regret it.
Step 5 : Listen to you heart
It is ALWAYS right, even when your Brain makes more sense. That doesn’t mean you always need answer to it, just never forget to listen to it.
Step 6 : Love something, or someone, or both
Love unconditionally. Love with your Whole Heart and don’t be afraid to protect your love. LOVE your craft, your friends, your significant other, but most importantly, love yourself and others will love you too.
Step 6 : Choose a side !
Age is a number, young is a feeling.
Here’s to being forever young.
