A few months ago, I had my 39th birthday. I was scared that I was getting old. Really scared. A few months later, not so much. I'm coming to grips with my age and my place in the world. I'm learning to not care so much about those who still act like they're in high school (gossipers, back-stabbers, etc)...I'm learning to be more patient with myself. I'm getting better at saying, "No, I can't do that for you this time."
A lot of us fight getting older. We buy creams to smooth our skin, clothes that hide our parts better. I think that's great if you need to do it. BUT...
Today, I sit here and type the words, "I don't really care about the little things anymore!"
I don't care.
I care about a lot of things but I'm caring less about nasty people who carry around verbal knives...I care less about those who are mean and rude to others...I care less about crap I can't control.
I DO CARE about big things. Tolerance. Kindness. Love. Generosity.
Strange how long it takes some of us to grow up but if this is what happens when you get older, I can't wait to see what the next few years have in store!
