getting older

While I was gone I celebrated another trip around the sun.  I’m old enough to know that I don’t want to waste any time grousing over the fact that I’m older.  It happens.  If we are fortunate we get older.  It’s like I told someone the other day – getting older is 1 part suckage and  2 parts freedom.  Not a bad ratio.  Now that I’m thinking about it though,  I’d change that to 1 part suckage, 2 parts freedom, 2 parts wiser, 1 part realizing this is your life so stop  dinking around, and 3 parts being kinder to yourself and others.  A pretty darn good ratio!  Hello 49.
