With all of the changes I try to put myself through as I get older sometimes I have to stop and ask the question… “Are you happy where you are at right now”? The answer to this question is obviously YES.
Sometimes my instinct to push forward and progress further in the pursuit of creating a better self me gets the best of me. Sometimes I think I try to hard to become the vision of myself I create in my mind and simply forget about the person I am right now. At 55 I am in pretty good physical shape, I eat healthy and enjoy the laughter of sharing life with family and friends. It is rare when I can truly say that I had a bad day.
This underlying pursuit for perfection is a train I have been riding for my whole life and I don’t regret it one bit. I have attained incredible knowledge throughout the years and have been involved in some pretty interesting projects that gave voice to my creativity and dreams. But the bottom line is that sometimes we all need to get off the train and take in the experiences of the stop off’s along the journey. Sometimes it is OK to have a seat at a railway station to just sit and watch the trains go by.
Know that soon I will be back on the train and moving forward on my pursuit to somewhere I can take comfort in knowing that sitting on this old bench at the railway station is also a part of this journey and has probably always been a part of it. The difference is that I believe as we get older we start to recognize our times of contemplation. No train can run forever without stopping to be re-fueled at given times. And it is during these stops along the way we discover that our lives really are pretty good.
