Reflections on turning 50…

Yep, turned 50 this past October 11.  Been waiting to see what it feels like before I posted any reflections.  Have yet to actually absorb the fact that I’ve lived for half a century.  Thought I’d post a few things I’ve learned in 50 years (I’m sure this is just the first installment of this post – sure I’ll think of more!)…but here goes…

My dad was much smarter than I gave him credit for and I miss him dearly.

Absolutely and positively grateful for church, music, books, and motorcycles.

I control nothing except my own personal choices.

Thirty-somethings who think they have it all figured out are so – cute.

Choose your path carefully – you may be on it a long time.

Wish I’d taken more time to play.

Be careful of the words that come out of your mouth.

Don’t waste time on people who don’t “get it”.

Life is really short.

Still find it hard to believe that the Almighty Creator of the Universe would give a hang about me – but I know He does.

Still find it hard to believe that the Almighty Creator of the Universe is so unbelievably patient with me – but he is.

That’s it for now…

  1. So what’s a hang? While I’m not yet 50 I agree with your sentiments.

  2. Some great observations! And – lots to think about…
