As we get older we question alot of things in our lives . Do you ever set and reflect on the past and ask yourself “what if” ? Like what if I would have taken a different path with my career , or what if I would have raised my kids differntly , what if I would have grown up in a different part of the country ? I think about things in my childhood and think how the hell did that happen or why and there is no good explanation except it was a lesson learned and a building block for who I have become . I often wonder if I deserve a good ol fashion nervous breakdown yet, or simply a mid life crisis, and then I smile and just think to myself , girl you are a rock star for keeping your head on straight this far ! Do you think there is an age limit when you are required to just accept how your world turns ? Is it ok to be selfish once your kids are grown ? What if you wanted change and to explore new things . Is it ok to just throw responsibilty in the air and run as fast as you can even though you were always led to believe that being a grown up is supposed to be boring and routine day to day . I think not…. I say screw it and take the chances you were afraid to take ! Your not getting any younger and you have done your time for others now its your turn . Buy that rediculous outfit that you have told yourself no to, Take a trip to beautiful place , change your hair , do something that scares the hell out of you . Point is don’t get stuck in the mindset that because we are “grown ups” that life is all schedules and timeclocks . Be brave and be proud of your accomplishments you have in your life . You deserve to celebrate the saccrifices you have made to be successful , dont grow to be resentful and think that you HAVE TO behave in a certain way to keep your reputation untarnished . I could go on and on but I will wrap it up by simply saying life is too short , so dont give your mind any more ammo against yourself with the “what ifs” and get out there and live it up , you deserve it !
until next time… Cheers !
