Live Life Now

So here we are at the end of May. I have been banging on about turning 50 (on Facebook) for about a year and so I decided to share why. It isn’t just a midlife crisis.

Ever since my dad died just before my 10th birthday I have that burning need to live life to the fullest. You see my dad died when he was 42. He never got to be in his 50s. I find it hard to imagine not having the last 8 years of my life. He didn’t get to see his daughter (me) grow up. He didn’t get to travel. I don’t think he had even been in a plane. He didn’t get to retire. So many things he didn’t get to do.

Live Life Now

On a similar note my friend Paula’s anniversary of her death was a few weeks ago. She died of the same thing as my dad and didn’t get to be in her 50s either. Paula didn’t get to see their children grow up. She didn’t get to retire.

I am passionate about everyone living his or her fullest lives. Not when the kids leave home or when you retire or as soon as we pay off the mortgage. What if you don’t get there? So my intention is life to the fullest today in my 50s.

I can’t imagine not being able to live our travel lifestyle that we have designed but it does take a concerted effort, choosing priorities, living by our values, making the choice every day. What choices are you making?
