I often think about the old adage, “time flies when you’re having fun”. Well guess what? It flies when you’re not too. Last year was a lot of happy, frustration, sadness, hope, surprise, and dismay all tied together in one wonderful knot. Marriage, children, world events, and family life can do that to a person.
Reflecting over the past twelve months led to an examination of the past thirty four years. In so many ways I’m right where I always imagined I would be. In others, I’m a world away. I have witnessed and done things I never dreamed and I have truly remarkable people in my life. With the dawn of this year came the realization I will soon be firmly planted in the middle age mom category. Friends, there are a few things on my laundry list that I have dorked around with for far too long. It’s time to stop jacking around and get down to it.
I have had fun years, hard years, and “I don’t know how I ever did that” years. There have been years of great change and great joy. I’m not sure how this year will end up, but at the starting line there is great determination in the air. I’m looking for a little inspiration, a lot more adventure, and one memorable ride. Tick tock y’all.
