Ontogenesis ; (biology) the process of an individual organism growing organically; a purely biological unfolding of events involved in an organism changing gradually from a simple to a more complex level

Year after year, we celebrated birthdays as a symbol of growth. Nevertheless, many regards it as another year of being older which demoted oneself from the benefit and joy of youths. Yes, it's true that as we grow older, we will have more responsibilities to take care of. But isn't responsibility is what our life is all about?

Responsibilities are always there through our whole life-span. Responsibility as a children is to play, get healthy yet don't get dirty. Although your parent may say don't get hurt, you will get hurt eventually and you'll learn the pains. Responsibility as a teenager is to study and learn more of your own strength, for that you'll decide your future undertakings. You will also get to know your weaknesses along the process. Responsibility is.. responsibility that... yeah all of us may already know what that is. Cliché isn't it?

What I'm trying to say is we have to celebrate our birthday to cherish our life, to congratulate ourselves of our maturity increment and to live to our heart content..

A teacher once said this to me "History taught one to be more judicious (Sejarah mengajar manusia menjadi bijaksana) " .

So why would we always look in the past and hope that we'll return to that state?? Returning to our younger state means that we're willing to move backwards, feel the same joy again, yet the same pain and most importantly, face our very same ignorance! Seriously, do we really need that??

Don't look back
Just remember what we've been through
And face what lies ahead
Shall we?
