Y = Youth

“Youth is wasted on the young” – George Bernard Shaw

It is so true.

I recently turned 52. How did that happen?

Every now and then it dawns on me that I’m not getting a re-do.
I’ll never get a chance to jump or run like I did as a child.
Driving is a necessity….its not exciting like it was at 16.
I’ll never see my twenties again (that’s probably good…I didn’t treat them well).
Any chance I had of giving birth to my own child is long gone.

When I look back on my youth I question why I made some decisions.
What if I turned right instead of left. What person would I be if I had not walked away from a bad situation or walked into a place of peace.

Sometimes its hard to picture every little instant and every little step that brought me to this age and this moment.

Youth is long gone. But my future is bright. When I turn 82 I will look back at the youth of 52….my goal is to enjoy every possible moment in between.

The A – Z Challenge will run through April. Each day is a different letter and a different photo…I hope you all enjoy!
