In my relatively few years I’ve done a bunch of cool stuff: grown from a baby to a child to an adult, traveled, gotten married, had two kids. I’ve also learned a lot: how to love, be a responsible grown-up, find joy. There have been plenty of hard times and seasons I would rather have not happened but they’re a part of who I am, too. It’s with each passing year that I become more of who I am. I know myself better and have the experiences that define me. I become more comfortable with myself and my strengths and weaknesses. I become the woman I was meant to be.
So I celebrate getting older. I’m excited for what the coming years hold. I have so much of my life to live and I am so excited to live it. There are many things to do, people to meet and lessons to learn. It’s only with time that I grow into myself and discover the life I was created for.
Age has given me what I was looking for my entire life—it has given me me.
She’s 30 years older than me so I can’t wait to see where I’m at when I’m her age! I look forward to getting older (wrinkles, gray hair and all) because time is the best teacher and I look forward to the education.
How do you feel about getting older? Do you find greater meaning in the years yet to come or in the years that have passed?
