23 on the 23rd

It’s not everyday someone turns the same age as their date of birth. Tomorrow is my 23rd birthday and though I do not remember what I used to wish to have achieved by this age, I’m still happy with what I have accomplished so far.

As usual, this song always gets me:(Five For Fighting- 100 Years)

I’m 15 for a moment
Caught in between 10 and 20
And I’m just dreaming
Counting the ways to where you are

I’m 22 for a moment
And he feels better than ever
And we’re on fire
Making our way back from Mars

15 there’s still time for you
Time to buy and time to lose
15, there’s never a wish better than this
When you only got 100 years to live

I’m 33 for a moment
Still the (wo)man, but you see I’m a ?they’
A kid on the way, babe
A family on my mind

I’m 45 for a moment
The sea is high
And I’m heading into a crisis
Chasing the years of my life

15 there’s still time for you
Time to buy and time to lose yourself
Within a morning star

15 I’m all right with you
15, there’s never a wish better than this
When you only got 100 years to live

Half time goes by
Suddenly you’re wise
Another blink of an eye
67 is gone
The sun is getting high
We’re moving on

I’m 99 for a moment
Dying for just another moment
And I’m just dreaming
Counting the ways to where you are

15 there’s still time for you
22 I feel her too
33 you’re on your way
Every day’s a new day

15 there’s still time for you
Time to buy and time to choose
Hey 15, there’s never a wish better than this
When you only got 100 years to live

Tomorrow, I plan to go for swimming with some friends to celebrate this day. If you’re reading this you’re invited 🙂

We share a birthday with many in the world, I’m sure. Include one @gracemwaura. Happy birthday deary.

    Happy B.day 🙂 23 for me was a long while back but thanks for reminding me 🙂 I listened to Five for fighting when I was around your age too (abit younger).

    Enjoy your 23rd and remember the best days are ahead of you, but the paradox of life is such that you’ll never really get to live them if you don’t live your present days with all the fervor you can muster and I’m not just saying that. 🙂

    Good advice, I’m taking it seriously, thanks!

    Thanks! You should youtube the song… it’s so um.. can’t find the word for it. It’s reflective.. as in it makes you think about the stages of your life.
