I love to know what makes people tick. I love to hear what they’re thinking and listen with an open mind to what they are saying, I mean really saying when they talk. It always amazes me that people open up to me, strangers even, with such vulnerability. I guess I should have been a counselor in my life, but that ship has sailed. I’m not going back to school any time soon. But in the meantime, I enjoy helping people to find peace. I’m not certified in anything except life school and I’ve had a bunch of exams that thankfully I’ve passed – life changing moments and tragedies.
But I’m still here!
I could talk about most situations with strangers. I’m an open book these days at age 50. In fact, I like being my age and wouldn’t want to be younger, even though that’s not the common thread among my age group. Many lament that they wish they were younger, but not me. I’m proud that I have lived through what I have and I’m still here. I find enjoyment in helping others and if I weren’t the age I am, with the experiences I’ve had, I wouldn’t be able to help them. You can’t understand unless you have been through something similar. That’s just a fact.
So I embrace my age of 50! I’m happy to have made it to this place of peace. Sure, my life’s not perfect, but it’s mine and I’m embracing every piece and peace of it!
How about you? How do you feel about your age?
