Really thinking about time

Sunday, October 07, 2012

At age 16 we are excited to get a drivers license, at 21 we are excited to be of "legal age", at 25 we are excited to have hit a quarter century. Time seems to run slow in our 30's but once we hit our 40's things seem to speed up a bit and we find changes affecting our life that we did not expect.

Parents may start getting sick, friends might be divorcing, maybe you found you are not able to have the children you wanted so bad, or you have lost your job and finding another has been more than difficult. Your life is changing overall and you are not sure what the future holds. Stop and think about this moment of time and where you are in life. I suppose the saying, "today is the first day of the rest of my life" really does mean something important. Take today and grab hold, enjoy your family and friends, take on your life challenges with strength and determination to do you best and get the most out of your life, don't let the negative changes of life get you down...remember, today truly is the first day of the rest of your life.

    Well, I 'was' 40 yesterday, but all of a sudden I've blinked my eyes and I'm over 60 today. Where has the time gone?

Here is a life poem for you:
