Peaked

Peaks. They’re everywhere. Mountains have them. Waves have them. But do our lives have them?

We certainly hear it applied to our lives enough. You’ve peaked. You’re at the peak of your career. The peak age of having children. Etc etc

But what does that word even entail? It certainly seems to bear a lot of weight to it.

It insinuates that you’re at the height of your career, life, school, etc…that from this point forth nothing better will come along.

Well that’s depressing.

Do people really peak?

Is every day not another opportunity to grow? Do I, at a certain age, all of a sudden stop learning, stop adapting, stop becoming a more well-rounded person?

To insinuate that at a certain age I won’t advance at my career, I won’t be as capable of having a child, I won’t grow as a person to me is completely ridiculous. My life is not a singular wave, it’s composed of many waves, big and small, with variable peaks.

We have our good days, our bad days, our days where we’re super productive, and others where we just slouch on the couch all day. Some of us are only 23 with the maturity of a 40 year old and others 40 with the mindset of a 23 year old.

Life is dynamic and unpredictable, a true roller coaster. Nothing is static and everything dependable.

So the next time someone tells you that you’ve peaked at something, not only give them the middle finger, but also refer them to my blog so they can learn a thing or two!
