When you reach a certain stage in your life, things begin to fit differently into your life. Well that is my experience anyway. I am often reminded that because I feel or think the way I do, others may not.
Our lives have been transformed by what is happening in our world right now. Some days, I think it’s like watching a Marvel movie or reading a dystopian novel. I have reached the point where the simplicity of life is a gem to behold. Sunsets, sunrises, rainbows they all hold joy for me. Nature and the world is a remarkable entity. When all is said and done it will go on like time, ticking by when I am but a star in the cosmos.
Naturally, my children, adults all, are still planning and living their lives. I would expect nothing less. I breathe in their excitement and desires and dreams. They don’t know where those plans will take them, or even if they will work but they are going for it. I am the bystander of their movie.
My dreams are less complicated now. The road ahead is still a mystery. I relish each day with gusto and wonderment. I am still impatient for things to happen and then hear my mothers voice calming, telling me all things in good time. Though time now becomes a little more valuable. Yet that is the nub, it should always be valuable. We should always greet each day with thanks. Even more so now with life being so upside down.
My life has been full of richness and exploration. It still is even though it is a little simpler. There are still things to accomplish, places to hopefully visit when it is safe. There is still learning to do.
From rushing around, meeting deadlines, writing reports, raising a family and dealing with plenty of drama, I love how I can now embrace that simplicity. Revel in all that surrounds me.
Wherever the road make take you, relish the ride and value the time.
Thanks for dropping by.
