We would often hear this cliche that life begins at forty-especially women and I don't know if this is just to console one's self of the dreaded thought about getting older
and aging soon, lol!
Well, I myself once used this apparently consoling thought the day my age turned to what they say "out of the calendar days". And yet, looking back now-I realize that this cliche is not really something to be positive about but rather a sad thought, considering that if this would be, then there would be a lot of people who won't even have a life as not all of us would have reached 40!
But when do we really begin to live?and I mean really live. Should we really wait until we are forty? Do we have to waste 39 years of our lives first before getting a life?
As I turn 37 today- a realization came to me-that life doesn't begin at forty at all. In fact, you may even have reached a hundred years old and die without actually having had a life. This i discovered-that life can begin any point in time of our life at just one particular moment-this moment can be on your younger or older years or not at all-depending on your decision. I thank God for giving me life and I mean real life even before I reached forty. Now, I don't really have to fret and worry about getting older...though my family and friends seemed to be the ones worried for me being still single at my age, lol! But of course I'm not discounting the thought of having my own family, it's just that I do know God has great plans for me and I just have to be still while He is working on it. After all, life's essence is not in having a husband/wife, nor kids, nor boyfriend/girlfriend. In fact, they can even take the life out of you at times.
