Can we actually change after a certain age? It only gets worse from here on, you only get older, less attractive, have less energy, lose people you love, and of course drink more.

I am a realist not a pessimist…but I also have moments where I feel extremely lucky and grateful for my life and if you are aging it means you are living (a luxury some did not have).

I’m trying to be a more improved version of myself.

It doesn’t work out most of the time and it is disappointing, but I still try.
