We were meant to live

I can’t get that song out of my head and I’ve probably listened to it 30 times in the last couple of days. The funny thing, is that each time I listen to it and every time I hear it in my mind, I feel the same sense of excitement. I want to jump up and down and spin in circles! I can feel the words in every fiber of my being and everything inside of me agrees, I was meant to live for so much more. Somewhere along the way I started believing something different.

I’ve really struggled with getting older. I don’t like the number that is fast approaching and I feel like I’ve wasted so much life. I know I can’t go backwards, even though for years I told my kids I was counting birthdays backwards. If I truly am meant for so much more, then I don’t want to waste any more time fighting the inevitable. I’m going to embrace getting older and embrace the experiences of my life and the wisdom that comes with age. It’s easy when we are young to say age is just a number, but if I can keep in mind that we aren’t promised a single day, then age really is just a number. I am truly grateful to be where I am in my life and don’t want to take another breath for granted. I think I’m finally ready to truly live.
