It’s my birthday week and I am enjoying by taking a travel vacation in Florida. I am seeing friends that I haven’t seen in a while.. And no this bike isn’t mine. It actually belongs to a friend that I was visiting and we took it out for a ride. She drove, I enjoyed. But I do look good sitting on it and it does make me think about getting one of my own. Also eating foods that are totally not healthy.
If you’re wondering how old I turned this week, I have no shame in saying 53 years old. Yes, I am 53 and living life to the fullest. In fact the older I get, the more I want to live, travel, find adventures, and do things I’ve never done before.
Why wouldn’t I want to do these things?
It always amazes me when people think that just because they are getting older they need to stop living and enjoying life. If I had a dollar for every time I have heard someone say “Oh, I’m to old for that” I would probably be enjoying this vacation even more because I would have a lot more dollars to spend.
Now I understand with age comes wisdom and wisdom has taught me there are just some things I can’t or shouldn’t do at my age. But none of those things are to stop enjoying myself.
And I understand that there are just some things that as cool as they may sound or look I’m just not interested. Like sky diving. But that doesn’t mean that if I was interested in sky diving I would be to old to try it.
My bucket list keeps getting bigger as I age, instead of smaller. I see something or somewhere that somebody has done or gone too and now that’s on my bucket list.
I have said it over and over and will continue to say it. Life was given to us to live. I’m sure some of you may be sitting there saying it’s easy for me to say because I have the time, energy, resources etc, to do these things.
The truth is I have no more or less than you. I make time, I work my tail off to have resources, and I take care of my health to have energy. I don’t use excuses, I find ways.
I truly believe in my heart that everybody has the same opportunities to find ways that I have.
If you need help, motivation, guidance I would love to give that to you. In fact that is one of the biggest reasons I created this blog and come on here weekly to share inspirations and motivation with you.
So this weeks challenge is to start diving into the reasons you feel like you’re not living. I mean living in a way that brings you enjoyment.
What would you do tomorrow if there were no obstacles standing in your way? Now what do you need to do to start removing those obstacles?
You, and only you have true power over your life, and your choices. Stop living in your excuses and start living in your power.
Conquer those obstacles and then share pictures with us so we can see you living your bucket list. In the meantime here are a few pictures of my birthday week so far.
BTW, sorry I am a few days late posting. I have not been around internet and it gave me a chance to have some pictures to share.
