I went for my Medicare Wellness "event" today. Your tax dollars at work!!! And really, what else would you want to spend your tax dollars on but the chance to keep me around long enough to record my new song - or a podcast - or write that, no, THOSE books I keep nattering on about writing?
Growing old is ... better than NOT growing old.
There are some things that I will never get the chance to do. Those things are pretty much related to my aging body and to my lack of interest in doing them; i.e. I will never have a second child; I will never climb Mt. Everest.
But important things like -
Make a difference
Write a book
Paint a picture
Help a child find their passion - for this week - and another one next week
Sing a song
Share a story
Learn to dance
there is still a lot of time to do those things.
I wish I could decide where to place the time I have left. There are so many, many things I hope to do. My biggest wish of all? It's that everyone realizes that it is Not Too Late to do most of the things you dreamed of doing. In the doing of those things, you will ease the regret that might come from those dreams that will never come true.
I wish you hope!
