To Live

Imagine having a life against the natural flow of aging. To make things sound more easier to understand, it's something like you're born physically old and as times pass by, you'll get younger and younger, while everyone else is getting older and older. What would a life like this be?


This one miracle guy answers them all in the movie "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button". Starring Brad Pitt, this is a story about a human being born as an old man. Physically old but mentally young. As Benjamin slowly grows up, he becomes younger every day. Healed from broken bones and being crippled, Benjamin's situation can only be explained as God's miracle, nothing else. The story continues about Benjamin's story from getting old to growing young. Enjoy it if you are interested in it. =)

After seeing the movie, I was very deep in thoughts. While seeing the movie, I feel a great sense of sadness within me. Nobody wants to grow old. While you're young, you can walk, run and jump up high, full of energy and enthusiasm. As you start aging, you'll begin to get disease and your body gets weaker. You get osteoperosis easier, organ failures, fatigue. At some point, you can't even run normal anymore. It's life. People get old one day and it hurts to imagine then decades from today, you may not be able to walk or move as lively as you can anymore. You feel like appreciating everything while you're young, but you just can't do so because your life is not at its highest peak. In the end, when your life is at its fullest, you may not be energetic enough to enjoy it...

About aging, that reminds me of accepting death. It really hurts to see someone you truly love leave you . Of course, they'll remain in your heart, that's what you'll say, but just imagine, whenever you thought of that person, there's a burning feeling within you to urge yourself to meet that person, to talk to that person, to stay with that person for just a little while, to feel that sense of warmth and happiness with the company of that loved one, which can no longer be with you......

Well, that's all I can say about the movie, don't know what else to type. So well, as a conclusion, I feel afraid of getting old and dying, but well, the only thing we can all do now is wait and appreciate what we have now, don't you think? ^ ^
