I turned 53 on Sunday- 53!! I don’t feel old, in fact when M called to tell me Happy Birthday, she even told me that she (in her 24 year old mind) doesn’t think that 53 is old. I can remember my parents at 53- I don’t remember thinking they were old, they were just older than me and I’ve always known- much wiser!
This list is just something that I came across, but it makes me think of what I’d like to have under my belt in the next 10 years. It makes me reflect on what I could/ should have done. I think I would add more experiences with my kids and family. I would add living in a foreign city- something that I never did, but have supported M to do on a couple of occasions. She still says that her summer living in Beijing was a great life changing experience! I would add service to the world in some way either something big such as Peace Corps or serving in my community and church.
So there it is- my response to the list. How many do you relate to? What should be added?
