Screaming to 50

Today, I start my six month adventure to 50. See my birthday is coming up in November and I told myself long ago that when I reach 50, I had to start taking things serious. Well, those days are coming like a run away freight train.

Remembering those 20’s,

I have decided it’s time for a bucket list. The issue, I have never been a person that has gone without something I wanted. The problem, I wanted a lot of things that I truly did not need. I have also come to realize that with maturity comes sensibility. When I was in my twenties, I wanted to accomplish everything I could, in my thirties, I wanted to leverage my accomplishments. In my forties, I wanted to fix all of the things I completely screwed up and now, as I head to my fifties, I want to accomplish difficult things and I just might fail. Best part, I am ok with all of it.

I have always said, “On my worst possible day and I have had some devastating ones, I am better off than most.” My mother ingrained the value of work ethic, my relentless pursuit of success does not allow me to give in to defeat, and I learned that most things work themselves out in forty eight hours.
