Today I had an interesting conversation with my boss. Long story short it was about the life.
When your young you are curious, gutsy, and naive. The only thing that bothers you is the kid at school, mom and dad saying “no”, or trying to get your toys to do what you say.
As you get older, late teens early 20’s, you start to understand the importance of growing up. School becomes more of a focus rather then a hang out, you get a job because you need to pay for school, and family becomes more interesting to you. You start to break out of the naive phase yet you still have a ways to go. You might learn what it means to be heart broken. You’re starting to get a good idea of who you are and the person you want to be.
Now you’ve grown a bit, you start your own family, your career is taking off, and maybe your in the market for a new home. Siblings, are either doing the same or are still in the naive phase. Your father goes through a midlife crises and comes home with a new car.
At this point family is at the top of your list, you become an uncle/aunt, your little sister/brother is getting married, you start to see yourself aging, your not as fearless and gutsy as you used to be, it takes more energy to be physical move around and you find yourself going through a mid life crises.
As you grow you continue to feel happiness, receive love, maintain your health, wealth, then be introduced to sickness and death.
Life, at times it will be a blast and others it won’t. AT times you will cry with Joy and others you will just cry. You may not know what to do or feel, and sometimes you just won’t know what to say. There are things that are out of our control. If you think positive thoughts and embrace the wonderful things you had going for you then, now, and whats to come you will make life what it is.
My point: Life is what you make of it.
RIP Aunt Margie, you will always hold a place in my heart.
