You wake up one day and realize you’re ten years older than you were the previous night. Beyond the initial shock, how does this development change your life plans?
It doesn’t matter really… I’m still younger than my boyfriend (HAHAHAHAHAHA Can’t wait to read him this one), but I’m still me. Some days (like today) I wake up and I feel as though I’m 80. My body hurts. Some days I wake up and I’m still 18. I will always laugh and be silly with my son. We dance through the house singing songs like complete fools, but it makes him belly laugh that I’m such a spaz. I like it that way. The number might have changed, the aches and pains may get worse, but I’ll always be the same person on the inside. Age doesn’t define us, and it doesn’t make us automatically smarter or wiser. If we haven’t paid attention thus far, and learned many life lessons to date, we’re just going to be older idiots. So, I imagine I’d be in shock, but there’s a reason we say time flies. It does. Those ten years will be here before we know it. This is a good prompt to point out… STOP AND SMELL THE ROSES!!! Enjoy life. Stop taking it so seriously. No one gets out alive at the end anyway. Be happy with who you are and all you’ve accomplished. And know that your age doesn’t define you or your intelligence. Pick up a book (preferably mine when it’s done), learn something new, educate yourself, but have fun. Now I have to go, because I promised my son a stack of big pancakes for breakfast, and he just woke up, so I gotta get to cooking, regardless of how I feel.
Hope you all have a great day!! Stop back in a bit for my Motivational Monday post!!
