Maybe I should lie about my age. Maybe I should cry that I’m getting older. Or maybe I can just be grateful that I have the blessing of life, health, love, and family. I have the joy of dancing and friendship and challenges and growth. I have the ability to change and reach goals. I have the wisdom to know myself and my limits. I have the grace to seek forgiveness and make wrongs right (if I can). So sure, wrinkles start to creep in, sleep becomes more of a priority as does nutrition and exercise, and you begin to question what the next half of life will hold....but you’ve lived long enough now to know that things never stay the same and life does indeed go on whether you’ve been dealt blessings or strife. So might as well make the best of it! Try your best to let go of guilt and embrace God’s grace. Try your best to heal from hurts. Try your best to develop a new skill. Try your best to be a good human. Try your best in general.
Impact as many people as you can, do as much for yourself and your family as you feel capable of, and live with JOY out loud...be humble, be kind, and also, be bold.
