Aging is such a enlightening journey. It seems entering a new decade brings many surprises as to how we feel about the experience. I've been feeling a sense of urgency with the entering of my sixth decade--I mean, really--!?!?!?--SIXTY!?!?!?!?
Of course, in a period of three months:
1. Mother passed away in June, 2014
2. I turn SIXTY on December 4, 2014
3. Retire from thirty years of a FABULOUS teaching career on January 16, 2015
I read the other day: 'this is plan be...'
Yes, life events can give us a sense of urgency.
Plan be: Am I living my life the best I can? How do I want to manage my next decades? Am I being the best I can? And it's about LIVING. And how we choose to show up!
So I'm nervous, a bit fearful..but bring it on. I'm ready for changes!
As a working artist/retired art educator, I've always lived the artful life. Let's share!
