I woke up this morning and thought, Whoa! I’m 50!” Then I decided what I’m going to do with the second half of my life. (I probably don’t have 50 years left, but just maybe I have 40.) First, I’m going to keep on loving God and learning about His character and I’m going to do my best to live a life that pleases Him. I want to love myself less and others more with each passing day. I’m not going to dwell on past mistakes. I’m going to take the lessons that I’ve learned, and move forward. I’m going to live a healthy lifestyle. There’s still so much that I want to do and I don’t want this body to hold me back. I want to learn when to speak up and when to be quiet. I’m going to own less and give more. And I’ve decided that I’m going to start writing those books that I’ve dreamed of writing. It’s not too late! I’m definitely not going to spend this second half of my life worrying about what people think. I’m going to be who I was created to be. I know that hard times will come, so I am determined to tell my people that I love them and make beautiful memories while I can. I’m going to leave behind unnecessary baggage and find joy in every step of the journey that lies ahead.
