The Winter of Your Life

  This might be a little cliche to many of you out there, but coming from one who has lived awhile longer than most of you, believe me, it is so true . . .

You know, time has a way of moving quickly and catching you unaware of the passing years.

It seems just yesterday that I was young, just married and embarking on my new life with my mate. And yet in a way, it seems like eons ago, and I wonder where all the years went. I know that I lived them all...

And I have glimpses of how it was back then and of all my hopes and dreams... But, here it is..the winter of my life and it catches me by surprise...

How did I get here so fast? Where did the years go and where did my babies go? And where did my youth go?

I remember well... seeing older people through the years and thinking that those older people were years away from me and that winter was so far off that I could not fathom it or imagine fully what it would be like...

But, here it is...wife retired and she's really getting gray...she moves slower and I see an older woman now. She's in better shape than me... but, I see the great change... Not the one I married who was young and vibrant... but, like me, her age is beginning to show and we are now those older folks that we used to see and never thought we'd be.

Each day now, I find that just getting a shower is a real target for the day! And taking a nap is not a treat anymore...it's mandatory! Cause if I don't on my own free will...I just fall asleep where I sit!

And so, now I enter into this new season of my life unprepared for all the aches and pains and the loss of strength and ability to go and do things.

But, at least I know, that though the winter has come, and I'm not sure how long it will last...This I know, that when it's over...its over...Yes , I have regrets. There are things I wish I hadn't done ,,,,,things I should have done. But indeed, there are many things I'm happy to have done. Its all in a lifetime...

So, if you're not in your winter yet...let me remind you, that it will be here faster than you think. So, whatever you would like to accomplish in your life please do it quickly!

Life goes by quickly So, do what you can today, because you can never be sure whether this is your winter or not!

You have no promise that you will see all the seasons of your life...so, live for good today and say all the things that you want your loved ones to remember...

"Life is a gift to you. The way you live your life is your gift to those who came after. Make it a FANTASTIC one." Make 2010 the best year of your life.

LIVE IT WELL!! - Author Unknown

  It IS a little cliché, mysterious author person, but we appreciate the sentiment.

Carpe diem.

  Reminds me of the lyrics to the Kenny Chesney song "Don't Blink"

For me its not so much cliche as it is the truth.

In the words of Ferris Bueller, Life moves pretty fast.

It does. I'm almost 33 and am just now feeling like I'm learning how to live. I think of how much time I wasted not paying attention.

Now is all we have. Cliche as it may be better start paying attention...

For what it's worth...

It is absolutely the truth, I really just thought it might be cliche to the younger folks that frequent this place.
I'm 55 now and I swear I was 25 just a few weeks ago.
My Dad is 82 and he just says "what happened" ?

  It's cliche cos it's true.

When I was first introduced to this forum, it was 2003/2004 and in those 6 years, it was like my life had passed me by just like that.

There are days when I can't believe I'm not 18 or 21 anymore. It makes me panic that I am only just growing into myself and getting comfortable with me, and it won't be long till I gotta go already.

Maybe time passes faster after 30.
