What do you call life?

I have spoken to a few people who have spent more time in this world than I have. They have seen the past when gas was as low as $2.00, and they remember when stores like Mervyn’s were still open. They often tell me about the “good old days.” I’m sure we all had those moments when we were 50, 40, 30, 20, or 10 years ago. Time changes, and people change with it, sometimes for the better and sometimes not.

What I understand is that regardless of your age, there is always room for something new in your life. You can explore a side hustle, pick up a new hobby, learn to cook, or delve into the world of art. The possibilities are endless. So, don’t limit yourself from experiencing all that this vast world has to offer.

As I always say, ‘Stranger things have happened,’ and there’s so much more to explore and enjoy.

Let’s talk about time. The more time you spend doing nothing, the faster time seems to fly by. It’s funny how, as you get older, time zooms past you at the speed of light, almost like Superman! But when you’re young, you might complain about reaching a certain age, but trust me, it’ll catch you up faster than you would think. I’m not joking. So treasure your youth and spend time with your children. Time is something no amount of money can buy back. You only hit each age once.

As a friendly reminder, if you want to learn something, do it. Don’t let time be the barrier that holds you back. Start your new adventure today. I sure did… So, what’s your next move?Believe accessibility is everything!
