I don't know how that happened. It doesn't seem even remotely possible. Yet here it is. I am 60.
I keep hearing that getting older sucks. I've been hearing about it for 30 years, but have yet to see it for myself.
There are tough things about aging, for sure. Unpleasant things. There's no denying it. But there were tough things at every stage of life. Being a child is not the proverbial picnic, nor being a teenager, nor a young adult. There are always issues, always heartache, and sometimes much worse. If we're lucky, there is also love and joy, wonder and excitement, adventure and meaning.
Aging is a privilege. I feel incredibly lucky and grateful to have it.
Thank you for being part of my life.
