Greetings from the other side of 50. Almost 4 months since the last post when I was merely in my 40's. So. So what?
At 50 I have enough self confidence to know I can get through just about anything and I will be okay. Make that I can get through anything and I will be okay. You can define okay.
I am smart enough with life experience to know we pretty much make our own karma. Our life is a compilation of our decisions and is nobody's fault but our own. I am fully accountable for everything I have done or said, whether I meant it or not, whether it was misunderstood or taken out of context. It served someone's purpose to take it differently than I meant it, but I put the words and deeds out there. They are the universe's to use and define. I know what I meant and that is mine with which to make peace. Or not.
I can strive to be more precise in word and deed. Never too old to learn or change. Never too old to know when change is not needed and we are fine the way we are, too.
I know what I'm good at. I know my strengths and weaknesses. Mostly. I've even been known to admit them.
So, at 50 I still think like I'm 30 but nothing quite works as it did then. I now know I am not immortal and neither are my friends and family. I hope that's an improvement from 30 and that I'll better treasure the times with them now.
So friends and family that is my stream of consciousness for the day. Be healthy and make it a great day, filled with hygge!
