After many years of wallowing in the old me image, I am struck with a newfound awareness – an epiphany that is changing my life: “There are no strings on me,” are words that delight children, but they make me smile with a renewed awareness that I am a child of God. “Isn’t it interesting?” I reflect, “God has given me a free will – to do as I please with the gifts He has given me.” Yet as a parent – until now I have not given my children the same space – the same freedom - loving them truly unconditionally.
You’re “too old,” is a response I have received while struggling to re-work life stripped of my former role. Perhaps I have exceeded the cutoff age for participation in some work fields. However, if I am to be earnest with myself I have to conclude that I am as old or as young as the perspective I choose with the dawn of each new day.
