“Getting over, getting older… better, bosser. Bad-ass and beautiful!”– Kurt Elling
Today is a new day, a new year and a new decade for me. I admit I am feeling a little verklempt as I look back on the past decade but I am also looking ahead and wondering what this new phase of life represents not only for me but for my family. I was going through the photo albums (remember those?) and came across the photo in this post. It was taken a month before my 20th birthday and right before my son’s first birthday. Yikes! Where the hell did the time go?
Time…we assume we will always have an abundance of it, but the truth is we only have the moment that we are in since really none of these moments are promised. If there was one gift that my 30’s gave me, it was the understanding that time is not infinite and that this journey can end far before we are ready. So moving ahead, I strive to live each and every day to the fullest, to be better, bosser and bad-assed…oh and beautiful. That is my gift to myself.
