Life’s a lot more beautiful when we’re naïf and hopeful. Dreams may come true and anything can happen. Life’s a developing film. An old-fashioned developing film.

As we grow old, we become “experienced”. We try things once, twice and a third time, and we feel we already know what it is like. We put an end other people’s dreams once “we know what will happen”. If dreams are absurd, they cannot come true: been there, done that.

And that’s what getting old shouldn’t be about. No one wants to be friends with people who tell us how a movie ends.

Don't let your movie end as you age. Start over, create a new episode, switch things around, and life will become much more interesting both for you and for the people you talk to.
