Tired of being young?

Something I often see on Facebook is this quote from some unknown source: “Do not regret growing older, it's a privilege denied to many.”

When I read it, I always nod in agreement and the next day I forget it all together. This truth, I guess, probably doesn't sink-in until we're ready, mature or old enough to really appreciate it as we should.

This long, enduring state of denial is probably what prompted me, as I was riding my bike this morning, to think that “We begin to grow old when we become tired of being young.” This quote is from me, I swear. Keep it in a safe place.
