I’ve come a long way

I’ve come a long way, but I am no done yet.

It hasn’t always been an easy journey; however, it was all labour. Along with the life lessons, learning, and personal growth, there were joyous and fun times, and great friendships.

I never complained too much, but being different from everyone else, did not make my journey easy. I worked hard to prove myself and my abilities. I shot to do the best at everything I attempted. Sometimes I succeeded. Other times, I had to cede defeat and I had to admit I could not do the deed. It wasn’t easy, but then who said it would be. Life is like that. I just learnt to accept it.

With my reaching into my mid-fifties, one would think I would slow down, stop trying, or stop learning, but I am far from done. I still have things I would like to do. Some of these things are listed on my ‘to do’ list, while other things I have yet to discover. I believe this is what keeps one alive, and keeps one moving forward. If one has nothing to strive for, then one is not living.

I may not be successful (in society’s eyes), but overall, I am happy. I have my health, a good life, a loving partner, a caring family, and terrific friends. What more can a person ask for?

I have what I need, but I am not done yet. There is more to see, and more to do.
