Time definitely moves faster as you get older. It “s all about perspective.
When you “re 2, a year is half your life!
When you “re 19, that same year is only 1/19th. It “s really not that big of a deal. It goes very quickly. Before you know it, you “re 20 years old.
I “m almost 40. For me, 20 years happened in NO TIME. Seriously, it just went *poof.*
And I definitely look younger than my age. I “m having to constantly convince people that I “m as old as I am – why on earth would I want to do that?
Something that doesn “t end, no matter how old you get, is that the younger you look, the less likely people are to pay attention to you. If you are trying to lead a team of people and look like a 20 year old, then you won “t necessarily command the same respect as someone with a few grey hairs.
Thankfully I also have picked up a little something called gravitas.
Learn that and you “ll be able to feel comfortable with whatever age you are.
