There’s a certain urgency that comes with ageing. My birthday was a couple of weeks ago and for the life of me, I cannot understand why I haven’t done more with my life at my age. Well maybe I can… But still…
I’m almost thirty, single, (well sort of…it’s complicated) and my finances are shit, to put it mildly. And now I am a tad more sceptical and cynical about a lot of things. Does that come with age?
Anyway, this post is an attempt at cheering myself up and convince myself that it isn’t too late for me.
I will make better choices when it comes to money.
I will find a way to draw myself back into things I am passionate about.
I will get fit, no matter how badly I want to hit that snooze button in the morning.
I will start a hustle.( I have a few ideas)
I will spend more time with my family.
I will give more.
I will work harder at my job, even if it is the least exciting thing for me right now.
I will not let opportunities pass me by, something that I have done in the past.
I will not compare myself to my peers.
I will not worry about things that are beyond my control.
I will not be unkind to people (even when they deserve it! ;D ).
I should probably print this and put it on my mirror so that I see it every morning because this feels urgent. And though it feels that way, I know that everyone’s life moves at their own pace. I honestly still wish for more out of life though…
Someone mentioned to me yesterday that life is a like a game of Snakes and Ladders (anyone remember that game?) He said that all the things I wish I had accomplished will come to pass in due time. (like when you get to the ladder and move a few levels up) And sometimes unfortunately, you end up at the snake and the snake swallows you. Setbacks.
Here’s the thing though, you’ve got to keep rolling the dice because the ladders and the snakes are just how life works. And that’s exactly what I will do. Keep rolling the dice.
