I am 30 years old and honestly I feel more fit then I was like 5 to 6 years ago. I think I am in the best shape of my life, both physically and mentally.
I grapple, I wrestle, I box, I jog, I ride skateboards, I read a lot of networking, programming, and quantum physics books, all in a span of 7 days. Could it be possible that my physical and mental being has improved despite aging? I can never do all this 5 to to 6 years ago, I get tired easily, and my patience for reading and digesting complex concepts is absolutely horrible. Now, I can read a book for the first time, and absorb its content without going back to it and reading it again. I never even imagined I can learn to write codes! Now, I am creating my own Cisco IOS simulator using Python and thinking of porting it as a Java Applet.
Whatever it is I'm doing, I am sticking to it. I think its my positive outlook in all things in life that is helping me a lot.
Dreaming while awake, of things I want to accomplish and acquire is also helping me push harder to achieve them. A man without a dream will never reach his potential.
Good thing its Friday, I can now work on my Fakie 180 Ollies, hell, there's even a 4-set stairs in a park nearby that I am trying to ollie on. The young kids, around 15 to 18 years old that skates on that park can easily ollie and kickflip those 4-set of stairs without breaking a sweat. If they can do it, I can do it. I will even do it better, in style, style comes with age :-)
