The speed of midlife

Honeymoon by bicycle
When will we make time to drink life in? To savor it. To suck the marrow out of it? Honeymoon photo, 1984. (Wedding was 14 months earlier)


The speed of midlife is fast.

And most of us like it that way.


Because it allows us to have a great excuse for why we aren’t changing.

  1. Big challenges here. Always a voice chiming in. Is it reason/wisdom? Is it fear?
    “We’ll take that big road trip when the kids are older.”
    “Should that money be used to pay down/buy the house?”
    “Is grad school a good use of my time/money?”

  2. If wisdom and great choices were easy, we’d all be living without regret and without failure. But alas, we are perfectly imperfect. Thank God. 🙂
