Despite My Age

I really never thought I’d reach the age I have. A lot of my friends are now much older than I thought possible, and to top it off they are active, climb mountains, take adventures, and participate in activities I thought only possible by the much younger. This reality has caused me to think about my destiny — do I have accomplishments not yet obtained, should I be setting goals?

I don’t have a clear answer but I admit thinking about the future more than I did ten years ago. I’ve dodged a lot of bullets, but having succeeded at life’s game of dodge ball only causes me to wonder what is next?

What I do know its all my planning and dreaming isn’t as important as being alert and open to opportunities. A lot of my best moments were not planned. I just happened to be available at the right time.

Which brings me to a conclusion. I don’t need to spend much time on what to do now that I’ve overcome my latest health hiccup. I must focus on being open to the next door God opens and being able to walk through it.
