This March I will be 56 years old. When I was a kid, I thought being in your 50’s was so old. Now that I am living this age, I don’t see it that way. Inside, I feel like that same little girl who thought being in your 50’s is old. I feel young. I feel happy and eager to learn new things. Like the saying goes, “You are only as old as you feel.”
I want to begin to learn more. A few months ago I started watching the program, ‘Universe,‘ with my husband. This show is revealing to me a lot of the mysteries of the universe I was always fascinated over and completely in the dark about. ‘Universe’ is also turning me on to science. It’s thrilling to watch and learn. It’s invigorating to actually have something explained so well you can understand it. For this reason, I want to make my word for 2019, ‘learn.‘ Learning is going to be paramount in my life this year. I intend to set aside blocks of time to read daily, whether it be before bed or in little snippets during the day like while in line at the bank or waiting in the car. I have stacks of books waiting for me, calling my name. The time is now.
Sarah Jessica Parker talks about how her mom always taught her to bring a book with her wherever she went. That way she would always have an opportunity to read when the time arises.
What is your word for 2019?
