Today is my 60th birthday – yes my 60th – whew! Birthdays that enter a decade have always held significance for me. When I turned 40 I opened my own chiropractic office. At 50 I had just ridden the entire KATY Trail which began a decade of long distance bicycling. Today at 60 I find myself in a much more contemplative mood, spending time both looking back and trying to anticipate what this decade will bring. It is a fine line – attempting to live the life that is directly in front of me while at times being caught in past memories and future wanderings. Today I am pleased. I continue to be active, Sharon and Jessa remains pillars in my life, I continue to have an enthusiasm for my work and we have a large network of friends and family who bring joy and surprises. I am also very grateful that my sense of humor remains intact and helps me keep an honest perspective.
At 60 I know that I am not ready to ride off into the sunset. I am more aware than ever that how I live today will influence what I am able to do tomorrow and for days to come. I am unsure of the future but look forward to the interaction between my action/thoughts and the surprises the universe has to offer.
I will keep you posted……
