Long long time ago, a story I read from a random book lives in my heart. In this age where people live longer, being a centenarian is no longer just a mere abstract hope, but a reality. Calculating the age into a day with 24 hours, we, the twenties, are still at the dawn or in the very early morning. Our twenties are the time when a person is still deeply asleep or just woke up, the time when our days have not even started yet.
While sleeping, in our dreams, we sometimes wander and face what could never happen to us. Those are available because it is in our dreams and that is the time we wander and confuse. This goes same to our real life. In our twenties, it is natural that we wander, get lost, or fail. Twenties is just a period when people are about to start the day.
Many college students, me included, experience frustration through many failures. However, the failure is defined by our reaction to it. Past is in the past, and the failures in the past are all behind us. I’m definitely sure that the lessons we learned from the failures will lead to a great success. Past is what we no longer have; live the present. I want all the twenties to know that we are still young enough to have a new start, using the lots of past failures as a stepping stone.
