I do agree that the reality of growing older and different limitations associated with age do enter my mind. This year I turn 55 and the reality that far more is behind me than ahead of me is based on truth. If I had taken the attitude in the last few years to say that I am just getting older, so I might as well stop learning, trying, re- inventing myself I cannot image where I would be today. Probably stuck in a nasty place emotionally and physically and definitely not someone you would want to befriend.
I do believe that as a Christ Follower we are to live with passion, and to serve otheres and to be an example of how a peace filled life can be possible. There are no excuses for not trying, each one of us has been blessed with unique strengths, skills and acquired abilities and we are to be good stewards of what we have been given. One day there will be an account taken of what we have done with what we have been given. That is the final finish line. What will your answer be for not doing what you felt you were always designed to do?
I mentioned on FB that Henry Cloud suggested making three goals a day to stimulate our brain to accomplishing more defined tasks. To me this made sense since I can have a " to do" list and yet not accomplish everything on it but having three very doable g goals in mind makes it a reality. So perhaps you start thinking about what Finish Line you want to cross this year, it isn't too late to start doing something that you have always wanted to do. Investigate, plan and think about next steps to make it happen. I
