Just some thoughts.
I've been a bit withdrawn and quiet online lately. I'm normally ready and willing to share with the world, but lately it just feels so fake. I don't like fake. I don't do fake. Fake isn't real life.
Maybe the fact that the BIG 40 is right around the corner and I'm reflecting on life and figuring out what I want out of the next 20 years. Yeah, that's it.
Don't get me wrong, I have been looking forward to turning 40 for the past 20 years. Crazy? Nope. I've always been 'too old' for my numeric age and I dreamed of the day that my age matched my mind. Not bragging, it's just how it's always been.
I look back at my life and see all of the mistakes, achievements, adventures, happiness and sadness. I regret nothing because every single thing taught me valuable lessons and besides, that's the meaning of life: to LIVE IT. My past doesn't own me and my future is mine to own as well. Ownership of life is the lesson that came out of the past 39.5 years of my life. Own IT.
Honesty, that's also one of the lessons that life has taught me. Be honest with yourself and others. Waking up and being able to be honest with yourself and others is the greatest feeling in the world. There is power in honesty and the right people will appreciate your honesty because those are the people that are also honest with themselves.
What has life taught you?
