Let’s just say that lately, I’ve been a little preoccupied with the aging process. And if I were to be Brene Brown about it, I’d also admit that I am feeling little scared shitless. I know, I know, I feel a little exposed saying that out loud because I think I shouldn’t feel that way–and quite frankly, I don’t want your pity or to hear “that’s not true, Rob.” Or “Stop that! It’s never too late.” It’s just my truth, just for this moment.
There are a couple of things I’ve been concerned with: 1. For so many years, youth was my hope and currency. Only I got super busy getting married; moving countries, having a family, cleaning the house, writing a book and making ends meet. Which is awesome. And I sometimes forgot to embrace–to see–each day and yes, myself. In my heart, I absolutely know it’s not too late… Pfft, I’m just getting started. But I’m worried other people will think it’s too late for me–that they’ll give my chance to the younger generation. 2. With aging, I see my beauty that I have hidden behind, slowly changing. It’s true that I am so much more than what I look like, but aging is a little confronting.
For some of us, there is a grieving process when we first start noticing signs of aging. But when we embrace it (instead of trying to run away from it,) there is a new do-over-with-wisdom and a richness waiting for us. I’m not waiting any longer to embrace life!
