Half Way There
As of July 1st I am almost 40. I will admit to being a little "bummed" about the whole ordeal. Don't get me wrong, I love my birthday. But this number does bring a pause for most people. Forty is the age that middle school girls think is really old. At least I did.
I can write nothing new about aging, or what it feels like, or how you should do it.
But I can try and enjoy it. I can do so much more at this age. I am WAY more active than I was at 20...or even 30. I have so many interests that it is hard to keep up with myself. I have more to look forward to then I ever did before. I watch less TV. I run more. I say sorry more because I know how easily I make mistakes and I hate it. I give more.
There is a bit of sadness that can creep in when you look at a number that is attached to you...saying goodbye to traditional "youth"....getting older means loosing more people in your life...but it is also the beginning of something new.
YESTERDAY IS GONE
tomorrow has not come
We Have Only Today
LET US BEGIN
