Fifty years and counting…

50 years.

That’s how long my parents have been married to each other.

We sometimes cannot wrap our heads around such numbers. You know, when you realize that some actors have been in the profession since six decades, or when you realize that Warren Buffet is 91 years old and still going strong – that too with a coke every day…some grit.

Fifty years is a long time, given the moment-to-moment nature of life that we have got accustomed to nowadays. Sitting without your phone for a couple of minutes is difficult, imagine spending 50 years doing something!

But then, some days come up with lessons that you cannot ignore. Time passes fast when you are in a rush, and slow when you pace yourself accordingly. Fifty years can seem a lifetime for some, and a short period of time for others. Taking it slow helps, and sipping in experiences, rather than gulping them down, can be good for you in the long run. Take each day as it comes, and they add up to 18,250 in no time.

Yes, that’s 50 years.

See you tomorrow!
