First 40

Once I read from a friend's Facebook post: "during the first 40 years of our lives, we are busy working and earning as much money as we could... and the next 40, spending all the money to keep ourselves healthy."

I think that there's much truth to that even if I am not even close to the first half of the years the author was talking about. Well, at least that is how I'd like to count my age.

As convinced as I am, there has been a lot of attempts to keep myself healthy for the last 10 years. It is good to know that there were times when I almost got there but really they did not last long enough to make me spend the first 40 years of my life staying healthy.

Right now, I am sitting on a bench watching people who are working hard jogging, running, biking and walking. Some of them look less than 40 and some way beyond 40. I'd like to think that whether they are on the first half or second, they are doing this to not spend all the hard earned money for the health related expenses. That's the same reason I am watching them now. I am resting and spending a bit of "me time" before I head back home from a 45 minutes jog-walk. I hope I can do this more often and be able to say my own version of that Facebook post later.
