Life is unusual, complicated, it can be tragic and magic. I can’t say I really understand it, but can any of us really figure it out? So all there is left to do is to live. Live your best life, be your best you. To feel and give and love and learn and experience and appreciate it all, because that’s all there really is.

You know you're getting old when... remember seeing Titanic on the big screen.

Conversation between me and a couple of volunteers:

Volunteer #1: "I love Titanic! It's my dream to be able to see it on a big screen some day."
Volunteer #2, confused: "Well, why didn't you go see it when it was in the theaters?"
Volunteer #1: "I couldn't, I was in kindergarden."
Me, horrified: "Oh my gosh, I was in high school! I feel so old!"

And that, my friends, is just the beginning. As time ticks on, more stories like this will make us realize just how old we're getting.
