These should never be counted, stated one of the finest Italian authors, Anthony Capella, in the most flirtatious way to elevate romanticism through his words. But have you ever wondered why they should never be counted when most of us count every single birthday, every single breakup and every single bottle of wine?
If you keenly observe, each element of that particular phrase defines ageing and in the process of growing old with enormous experience, we bother much about the number rather than living the moments in the past, present and future. And also from the perspective of having a romantic partner beside you, don't you think, counting the number of years you spent before encountering the most deserving one, the lovers whom you were with in the past and the glasses of wine you keep counting instead of enjoying the moment with your loved one, take you nowhere but ruining the acquaintance you enjoy currently? Naturally, those numbers do matter because too much wine on one night is also hazardous but your approach to counting numbers must come into the picture only when necessary especially when you know and have a deep sense of being with the right person.
Speaking of years, they surely define how old are we in every possible way with every passing birthday celebration in our lives. Here the counting of one's age number defines the mindset of a person. If you feel every birthday makes you look aged and push you a bit nearer to death, then you can never enjoy your existence on earth with such a pessimistic mindset. On the other side, if you think, ageing makes you mature enough with all the encounters and experiences you gather all this while, then you will be able to enjoy every moment of the rest of your with an optimistic mindset. They say age remains just a number, indeed it's an experience and nothing and no one can beat an experienced person in sharing exquisite life stories where one can learn way too many things.
The day you start investing your energy in counting numbers and feel worried, you start losing the zeal of living your life. And when you know that you are going to do something bigger, when you work on your dream project, when you struggle every day to attain a good point in life by acquiring all the skills and exposure, then you should never count the number of years you spend during the process. If you count, then it makes you feel demotivated especially if the number is immense. Nothing is a waste of time when you work for building your dream position in life. And when it comes to love, all those years leave you with endless stories and you get maturely ripened in choosing the best person to love you the way you deserve.
