Things change as you get older..
you see things differently
you put up with a lot less...
you know what you want out of life, friends, family
so much more than you did in your 20's,30's, 40's...
and you become a lot more true to yourself..
there is some carnage on the way
don't get me wrong
many people don't understand this particular journey
they don't see the road you have travelled and the path that is before you
That's fine too...
because you are born alone
and you die alone..
and the time in between is such a valuable thing..
drops of diamond sand
so so precious..
sometimes it takes you a while to truely see that..
sometimes things change
as they must
so that valuable time you are given
is lived fully and joyfully
to the very edge of its bursting beauty...
wouldn't you agree?
