This was wonderful! Aging is hard and I’m learning that slowly. But what I forget is that it’s also a privilege.

Turning 40 was awful for me because I wasn’t where I thought I should be in life. Then things started to shift physically and mentally and I really began to crumble.

I’m now adjusting accordingly.

We are all going to get old — if we are lucky enough to be here for the process.

We are old longer than we are young so the only thing to do is to buckle up and enjoy the ride.

Mine started out bumpy but it’s getting smoother. The bumps still rattle me but I’m holding on and staying on the road.

Thank for sharing this and happy birthday!
