It’s over already? Reflections on an upcoming birthday.

Okay, so this last weekend was like the last bit of honey from the bottom of the jar.  I took off on Thursday to go down to the ranch to get some writing done on Legends of Green Isle Book Two “The Mirror Sliver,” and Kevin followed up on Friday.  It was the last great adventure for me before the Spring semester started at Young Harris College.  We spent two days riding around the trails in the mountains. and my little Cash (horse) was spoiled, as I kept pockets full of carrots and treats.  Don’t know when I’ll get to see him again, as semesters get so busy, we don’t find time to get there to the Ranch as much as we would like.

I did manage to get a lot accomplished on the book, and did some rearranging of things that didn’t fit. Of course Kevin offered to do some editing, which was a big help.  But I kept thinking, it’s over already?  The winter break is gone?  What the heck happened to me getting Book Two completed all the way as I planned? What happened to me getting my paper ready for February’s conference in Dahlonega?

Time does seem to fly now days.  I always thought my parents were crazy for saying that.  When I was younger, it seemed that the days just stretched way too long, and I thought I would never reach 21.  Now I’m  saying “Wait a minute, I don’t want to be 47,” but it’s happening in just a few days.  I know I’ll look back in another 47 years and say “It’s over already?”  “Where did that time go?”
I guess I am a driven person because I don’t want to come to that time in the future, and reflect, thinking to myself, why didn’t I accomplish this or that?  I want to be the person who looks back on life and smile, thinking of all the fun and adventure I had with my loved ones, and say to myself, “good gravy, what a ride! Thanks for letting me be a part of it!”  Everyone says life is too short to worry, and I’m beginning to understand that phrase.  So, I’ve made a deal with myself that this year for my birthday, I’m gonna stop worrying about not having enough time, and just concentrate on making the most of time.  Okay self?  Okay!

  1. Hi Constance! I don’t know how recent the picture you use is, but if it’s recent I have to say you don’t look anywhere near 47, so stop complaining. 🙂

    You’re a beautiful woman, enjoy it. Before you know it you really will be old and you’ll look back and think how silly you were to sweat 47, especially when you looked so good.

    1. Hey MaryAnn! The picture was taken just this weekend. Yes, I know I will look back and think 47 is young. Heck I feel like I’m still in my twenties sometimes! But my body doesn’t want to cooperate. Here’s to us young chicks! 🙂
