In Others’ Words: As Old as You Want to Be
So let’s just have a little fun today.
I found this quote and made the graphic to go along with it. And then I was writing a post about age … and how we celebrate our age early on in life and then we deny how old we are later on in life.
And then I deleted all of that.
Because really, the quote “How old would you be if you didn’t know how old you are?” has nothing to do with any of that.
It’s a straight up question. Pick an age, any age. How old would you be? 10? 20? 36? 90?
I’m a “there’s no going back” kind of gal. I try to be content with where I am, even as I aim for the future. But, if I were to pick an age, I’d grab “thirtysomething.” My thirties were the years when I began to wrestle with my stuff. When I unpacked truth from lies … and began to accept the beautiful, awful truth. When I began to separate who I was from who I was supposed to be. My thirties were excrutiatingly painful years … and some of my most honest years. The mask came off … and for the first time I looked in the mirror and liked who I saw.
And in between all that growing, all that changing, all that honesty … well, I’d travel a bit more.
In Your Words: What about you? What age would you be if you didn’t know what age you were? Why? What would you be doing?
