Day 2, I joined the 50+ club

It wasn't the mile-high club, more like the 50 mile-club. This morning, it was a walk in the park at 6:30am. As per my last post, I'm committed to giving myself the first hour of every day.

It is the best hour.

Just me, the birds and few other 50+ seniors.

There's a few ladies doing a few brisk laps around the pond.

An old man practicing Tai Chi on the bridge as the sun rises.

And me. Just me.

My kids are reaching the age where they are end their school era and entering adulthood. I'm fast approaching the 50+ club. Different perspectives, different goals. I wish I could tell them what really matters in life and what doesn't. I'm not sure they'll understand. I'm not sure I know either.

But I did learn in the last two days about perspective. About stepping back, way back and thinking about what really matters. And asking ourselves, the thing we think is so important right now, how would we feel about it in 5, 10, 15 years.

Oh, yes, I got my blogging mojo back it seems.

All I needed was a change in my routine and making time for me.

More often, I'm the March hare (aka white rabbit) in Alice in Wonderland. "I'm late, I'm late, no time to lose, I'm late, I'm late, I'm late". It's time I stopped to enjoy the Mad Hatter's Tea Party or talk to the Walrus about cabbages and kings.
