Scary, but only 3 years separate me from that half a century milestone as of my birthday last week. It has made me really think about my mortality- is there an afterlife? Are we reincarnated? Do we just cease to exist? We all know what we grew up believing, but as I age I begin to wonder about these things.
I've also taken this opportunity to think about the goals I have achieved and those still yet to come. Career wise I have come a long way, and hopefully still have a ways yet to go. Education wise I completed my MBA last year. Do I go for my PHD? I really do enjoy school, and now that my children are grown I have time. I'm just not sure it is a good monetary investment at my age. Still thinking on that one.
I am also thinking about ways to prolong my earthly existence. I have been better in the past several years about exercizing, but it is so easy to fall off the wagon. I have also started eating better, but my changes have not been enough for any significant weight loss. I always start off good, but once I make one wrong move I am back at step 1. How do I get past that? I am an all or nothing kind of person and that needs to change, but I have yet in 47 years figured out how to do so. My goal for this year is to figure that out! The rest of the goals will fall into place once I do.
