I had coffee recently with a girlfriend who I’ve known since before we were born (like our mothers knew each other when they were pregnant). She said she had been feeling like she doesn’t know where all the years have gone and that it feels far too late to do something different like change careers.
Then, last weekend when Mr. B and I were on our date, the bar/coffee shop had this sign stating that if you were born on this date in 1993 or before, you could order alcohol. I think that was my high school graduation date!
Even though I do not understand how time seems to be speeding up as I get older, I don’t feel it’s too late for anything, except physically being younger, at least in this lifetime. I still feel that I can learn anything, travel anywhere, and be anything I wish to become. We impose those limits on ourselves. If a 99-year-old can graduate from college and if 70-year-olds can begin new careers, surely 39 is not too late to learn to speak Italian or to take up tap dancing. 🙂
It’s birthday time and I’m celebrating being me. Since there is absolutely nobody else on the planet who is exactly my brand of crazy, I choose to embrace who I am and who I choose to become. I wish the same for you… celebrate who you are today and know that you have the power to change how you see yourself, to change your story and become whoever you wish to be.
