I may be a minority here but I feel this way a lot here lately.
Beginning of life: all is exciting and new. Experiences mostly intriguing.
On into your teenage and young adult careers, we are focused on building and achieving.
Reaching into the middle aged or life comes to a high as we are about to reach are goal.
Into our older years, once our goal is reached, we slow down and take a look back
Now at the peak of our career, we no longer climb or move upward, we no longer grow.
Going nowhere!! Existing until our final day.
