The fountain of Youth
Hello world! How are you doing?
On January 8th, few years ago I was born!
Today I am celebrating this special day in a new environment. It is very special because it is also a new decade full of opportunities and goals! I learnt a lot from the previous decade, and I am so ready for this one!
In 2019 Instagram, was full of this #10yearschallenge, I have seen so many amazing things! For instance, Gabrielle Union, an American actress, or Will Smith seem to stay forever young 😊! I have recently seen on Facebook a video of people who refuse to get older despite being parents. It was quite funny!
What about you? Would you like to stay young forever?
Have you ever heard about the Fountain of Youth?
First thing first, the fountain of youth is that spring which has the power to restore the youth by drinking or bathing in its water. You will find many stories about these waters across the world such as in writings by Herodotus, Alexander romance and Prester John for instance.
However, it is the 16th Century that it became a legend thanks to Juan Ponce de Leon a Spanish explorer, first governor of Puerto Rico who has discovered the actual Florida in 1513.
Myth or Reality?
As far as I am concerned, I believe that youth is a state of mind! Aaliyah used to sing Age is nothing but a number! I agree. You should not let a number define you! It is never too late to do new things. I believe that each time that you are no longer in your comfort zone you start growing
So, this is my advice for you: do not be afraid to change your environment and habits! In my case, it is now that I am so far away that people realize my value. People tend to take for granted a lot of simple things like your presence, your smile, your laugh…
Finally, the true Fountain of Youth is your spirit! Indeed, while your body gets older your mind stays forever and ever young if you nourish it! I mean, sometimes you will meet young people wiser than older ones. It is simply because they have done a lot of different things to enlarge their horizon!
I encourage you to do whatever you should do, to live better!
Live, Love, Laugh!
See you soon!
