As Good as I Once Was

Im saying it loud & proud. I’m a middle aged mom, whose days revolve around work, family, dogs & cats, and the gym. If you had asked me a half a lifetime ago I’d be where I am today, I would say you were hallucinating.

Obviously, you grow up. Things change, priorities shift. Each extra day I get upright I consider a gift. I crammed a lot of living into my first quarter century, had some of the most amazing adventures. While some of that is currently on hold during this season of life, one day it might be.

There are too many moments to mention when I realized I lost my mojo. The time I caught my reflection in the mirror and I had no clue who I was looking at. Last time I checked I was still that rocking bad ass, exploring the universe both figuratively & literally. What I was gazing upon…was not that.

I couldn’t remember the last time I had been to the gym. I had stopped reading, except for bedtime stories or Facebook. There were lots of things I stopped doing/being/becoming. But life’s too short to dwell in the past. The only thing that’s real is RIGHT NOW. I had to get out of my head and get myself right.
