I’ve been doing a lot of thinking about where my road is leading me and I’ve decided that I won’t get old without a fight. I won’t let my road lead to nowhere.
I’m watching people that were passionate and impulsive and full of energy let their lives slip away and I don’t want to go that way.
Please understand I’m not talking about aging, that happens and quite frankly I’m debating the whole botox issue* with myself at the moment. Crazy Cat Boy has taken to calling me “Angry Bird” and having just seen myself on screen, I’m inclined to agree with him. It’s that gradual loss of a sense that anything is possible and doing interesting things with life that scares me.
So even though I’m in the second half of my life I’ve decided that I wont get old without a fight, I won’t give up on seeking out new opportunities and I sure as hell won’t allow taking a different way home from the shops to become an exciting thing in my world. I’ve been as guilty of this as the next person, life gets busy and somehow we forget to live it along the way as the days and then months slip by.
I want to have an answer that is more than “oh, you know, just busy” when someone asks me what I’ve been doing.
I wont be scared, I refuse! I’m issuing the challenge to anyone who wants to play along – What will you be able to say when someone asks “What have you been up to?”?
Where will your road lead you?
