Finding Me Again.
As I creep slowly closer to 40, I find myself looking both back at what (and whom) I've loved, and looking forward to the future and what it might hold. I don't know about the rest of you, but birthdays are always a time of reflection for me.
What have I done?
What do I still want to do?
My god, its time to get this saggy old bum in gear and do some of those things I want to, while I'm still able to! Admittedly, I have 70+ year old friends that are still out climbing mountains, and heli-skiing, and swimming with sharks... And who's to say I won't be one of them someday? I plan on it, but in the meantime, I'm very much feeling the need to carpe diem.
I woke this morning, feeling uneasy in my own skin, itching to... do something. Anything. For although I've spent the summer travelling, I feel like I've been stagnating since early spring.
So I'm reviewing my happiness list and see what I can (re)incorporate into my life:
Quiet solitude at the beach
Slow cooking Sundays
Space for just me sometimes- no man, no kids
Rock climbing and sailing
A warm fire to curl up in front of
Morning bike rides
Rekindling friendships I've let lapse
Waking up somewhere in nature
Any one have any thoughts? Anything on their must-have happiness list? Share in the comments, and it may inspire me (or others) to try new things, or revisit old ones! I can't be the only one who's lost sight of that which makes me...me, right?
