Another revolution around the sun has happened. This is the 46th time for me. I look back on my life and I'll have to say that I'm pretty happy with it! I looked in the mirror this morning and yes, there are a few more wrinkles around the eyes, a little more skin is sagging, and parts are racing south.
However I also see ab muscles, probably not quite a six pack, but muscle just the same. I see arm definition, my favorite part. I have the runner's "V" in the midsection. I have a smaller waist and thighs than I ever have. (This makes up for the smaller bust and boobs!)
I ran sprints the other night and felt pretty good after doing them. I've also learned over my 46 year lifespan that other peoples' opinions really don't matter to me. Ah, the wisdom that comes with age! If only we could figure this out in our teens and twenties.
Age is a funny thing. Some of us do get better with age and others use it as an excuse to "let themselves go." I want to be one of those old tattooed ladies that are still fit and make people wonder what in the world did I do when I was younger!
Here's to another year. May everyone's next be their best!
