Good lord where did the time go? life has gone by in a flash...
Okay truth be told some of those flashes seemed to go on forever...but they did end and then merge into the next. And now in the last week or so I have become very aware that in 6 months-as this is July 1st- I will be 60. 60! Unbelievable on so many levels.
Unbelievable because I can still remember when my babysitter said she was a freshman in high school and that sounded sooooo very old.
Unbelievable because my life does not look like the lives of people who I knew as a child when they were 60.
It is my life though and this upcoming milestone of sorts has given my pause to review. Where I am and where I want to go next.
If I was being honest with you I would say I have been comparing my life to others and that can be a bit daunting. My life does not look like many others. I am not sure what path I have been on but it has taken me from here to there back and forth and up and down more times than I can count.
I, like you, have my share of bruises and bumps but no one said this was easy. And for the most part it hasn't been. The last seven years indeed have been the hardest and the best I can say is that I am still here.
And that is a triumph in my book because there were days I did not think I could go on. But I did with faith and family and friends. And in the end when you are comparing your life to others around you that is what you should be comparing...if you feel the need to compare at all.
So 6 months to 60. I have decided to finish things that I have started and stopped and started again. I have 6 months to clear the deck and get ready for the next 60...just kidding! But seriously I think I am tired of carrying all the "I am going tos with me". Time to finally do them or send them on there way.
I am feeling a need for new adventures and closure. And I have a deadline with a fabulous cake waiting for me.
