Day 52 - too late

Wednesday, July 09, 2014

I think above all else this concept really scares me. I think lately I have been thinking a lot about how life winds down. In a blog a few days ago, I talked about how your world tends to contract and get smaller as life progresses beyond a certain point. All this walking and running really gets the thoughts flowing and today I was thinking, ok so I am 48. My life is still full of possibilities. All that I may dream can still be possible for me as long as I work towards it. I was thinking specifically of my running program. I want to run for 30 mins, so I am doing it. For some reason, it is very important to me. I was thinking today as I was walking along, working on getting my 10000 steps in that I don't want to wake up some morning feeling old with a body that is feeling its age and that is unable to move and do what I want it to do.

I don't want to wake some morning and say...ohhh my, it is too late to do those things I wanted to do. I am to old, too tired and my body just can't anymore. This is probably one of my greatest fears, that I will regret what I could have done.

I think I may be on a bit of a soul search. I think at 48, I am just figuring out what is important to me in my life and what I want to accomplish. As I figure these things out, I am going to strive towards them. I don't ever want to think it is too late.

    Isn't it amazing how old we get to be before we figure out what is really important to us? Don't stop dreaming're only half way through with life...plenty of time to still accomplish a lot of good stuff!
