Inspirations, Tuesday, November 20

by Emmy B.

My mom’s birthday is tomorrow. I’m taking the day off so we can partake in the usual birthday activities such as eating, shopping and opening gifts! I asked her the other day if she feels her age. She laughingly said, “Sometimes in the morning when I get out of bed I feel older than I actually am!” But then she admitted it sometimes boggles her mind when she thinks about her age. She feels like she should be approaching 40 rather than 80. I can relate. I’m approaching 50, but I usually still think of myself as that 25 year old kid who’s got her whole life ahead of her. I look in the mirror and see gray hair peeking through and crows feet making tracks around my eyes. Seriously, what happened to that 25 year old?

I read a quote once that said the days are long but the years are short. I think that gets truer every year. While intellectually I know it’s important to try to live every day to the fullest, practically speaking, one day just kind of floats into another. Before you know it a week, then a month, and then another year has gone by.

Note to self: Learn to be more conscious of each day, remembering that time is fleeting.
