OK… so I am not 65 or 75 but….I got some other issues that certainly helped me relate. Although I never got even remotely close to perfect, I now look back on my life and see how much of my life and energy I wasted on trying to get there or trying to make the rest of the world think, I already had it. I squandered time, money, my children, energy, talent, life, (and this list can go on and on and on) doing what other people expected, very rarely asking is this what I wanted. Now that I am getting closer to my end, I find myself desperately wanting to make up for lost time. Going out of my way to have experiences I have denied myself. Maybe I am over doing, maybe not. Maybe somewhere in here I will find the balance.
