Older, But Wiser?

Make of yourself a light.

Season of light

Are you getting cold feet about entering into the middle ages (that’s mid-forties to all you youngins out there)?  I am another year older this month and I don’t know how to feel about it.

And as I get older, so do my Old Ladies.

Older and wiser

We’re all dancing this waltz, slow or fast depending on your situation, towards the grave and we don’t want to think about.   Except that we think about it all the time.

We can’t help it.  We’re seeing our mortality every time we look in the mirror.   Whoomp, there it is!

Fading light

Though I hear tell that ‘older is wiser’ I am still waiting for that to happen.  When does it happen?  I hope it’s before I am too old to appreciate it.

What have I learned so far, assuming I’ve been paying attention, living this life I’m living?

It depends on what day you’re asking me, but what my pea-brain and I have been able to come up with, most specifically, is that the moment you’re in is the moment you must live.  As in don’t focus on tomorrow so much that you forget about today.  All this focus on all the goodies waiting for you in the after life is taking away energies that you need to make the here and now a better place.

The here and now

The here and now

Well, I gotta go now because the Boyfriend has just prepared a fabulous snack with treats from Sahadi’s and I need to focus.
