Today marks exactly six more months until I turn 42 years old. Where has the time gone??
When I was little, I considered my parents so old when they were in their 40s, and now, as karma would have it, so does my own son. Ha! I don’t feel or look old, with the exception of the plethora of grays populating my scalp and the fact that my joints now hurt at the slightest of activities. I welcome aging, for the most part. After all, I’ve gotten more confident, wiser and more comfortable in knowing who I am and what my life’s purpose is.
The only thing that scares me about aging is how fast time now flies by. Just the other day my 16-year-old son was born as we celebrated Y2K and now here we are in 2016. My mortality is that much more real when I realize that the calendar and clocks are now signaling that half my life has passed. The hours, days and months zoom by and I can’t help but ponder even more how I want to spend this second and last half of my life. If there is a time to start thinking about taking risks and making even more of my dreams come, now is the time.
In honor of my musings on time and how it waits for no man, here are some of the clocks in our home; all of which are a constant reminder to live each moment like it is my last.
Clock 1: Home Goods
