Not that Old

Don’t laugh! I just found out that I am not as old as I thought I was. What a marvelous concept.
It is not that

I am losing my mind; has more to do with the fact that when I turned 50, I made a big deal of celebrating. 

Every day for a week, I did something different with various friends and family. Activities included: eating the

prize winning Jambalaya for the year, grilling in the back yard and having cake with my grown children at

11pm. The kids made the 8 hour trip after work to spend the day with me. Each day was special. Since, I

haven’t kept track of my age. Not that I think that it’s all down hill, just that I have been busy doing lots of

things that I had put off doing.  Turning 50 was a wake-up call to access where I had been, where I was

and to motivate me to accomplish something if I was so inclined. When you set

your mind to see what you can do, great things happen.

Now I discover that I have a whole year to be this age again, it doesn’t get any

better. What shall I do with my year? Shall I make all the mistakes that I

previously made; quite possible. There are things I would

do differently if I could go back. I can’t go back but I can try to be better at what I do the second time

around. This time, I will reach out and challenge new opportunities that come my way. I will grab live and

hold on. I’m not as old as I thought I was so I am going to act as young as I am, even if that is over 50. :-)
