In NaNo smallness, I’m keeping my blogs short in November while participating in National Novel Writing Month.  This is short, but I hope it will make you think, I know it did for me.

A few weeks back, I was riding with one of our salespeople in Grand Rapids, MI, and he stopped off at Calvin College to see his son.  He showed me around campus, as he is an alumni from there as well.  I noticed how happy and upbeat all the young people were as we walked around.  I thought, “Man, it must be nice to have your entire life ahead of you.”  As we were driving later that day, I was thinking about this, and I realized that I STILL have my entire life ahead of me.  You see, the only life we have is the one that is still in front of us.  So from that perspective, we have it all available to us to do as we please.  So the question is, “How am I going to live the rest of my life?  Will I look backward, or forward?”

What do you think?  Do I have it right, or is this just the “wishful thinking” of someone in their 50s?  Let us know what you think, and thanks for stopping by. ~clink~
