Live Long and Prosper

Tomorrow, my internal odometer will turn over to ‘50’.   The last decade was a blur.  I believe most of it was filled with school, raising a teenager, chauffeuring, doctors appointments, vet appointments, working out, domestic chores, and searching for purpose.  I experienced great joy in my 40s, too:  travel, painting, long bike rides with my husband, watching my daughter perform in recitals and cross the stage at awards ceremonies, snuggling with snoring dogs, laughing until it hurt, and spending quality time with family and friends.  If I am blessed with another decade of life and health, I vow to slow down, to breathe more deeply, to live every day in a way that is memorable.  After all, what good is ‘live long’ without the ‘prosper’ part?
