I'm only 20 and lost hope by 14. I truly do admire them.
I do way more things in my life that I actually want to and worry way less about what other think.
It comes naturally. You have to work at it to indulge in self pity and despair.
Am still very young, have lots of energy and don't let the people bother me who tell me I am too old to pursue personal dreams, I still am on this journey of life and loving it.
Oh man, I remember dream crushers at every age. I tactfully let them know SQ refuses to let life defeat her or any negative a holes for that matter. I deal with aging or anything else with a good attitude and then get off my *** and work for it.
I refuse the sensible shoes the polyester pants and the sedate lifestyle. I'm in good shape good health and I Iove to rock and roll. I try something new every chance I get. Do who can stop me? Lol. I still feel young think young and dream. It's all good. :)
