You know of course as you get older there are more things to worry about than when you were younger? Well, maybe not more but different. My Sister Dana said something very profound last night...the "Golden Years" aren't very Golden! Life happens and choices are made and you try and do the best you can raising a family, making a career for yourself or maybe in my case having a well paying job, and finding love that lasts through the good, the bad, and the ugly right up into those "Golden Years", but not all of it comes out like you dreamed it would. Getting older does happen, for better or for worst. I should be wiser than I am, but I'm not, and that bothers me sometimes. Learn from the past and change the future...now, I don't think I've heard that before....yeah right! We are blessed in so many ways but sometimes when you're older you look back and say...cripes what was I thinking! Fortune has been elusive but I keep on trying. Fame was never my cup of tea. Love has been profound, fleeting and hurtful but I gotten through those three and am enjoying the easier path now, loving myself with all the flaws and baggage that have hurled me into these not so "Golden" years but they aren't "Pewter" either.
