My life: The real version
I was going to tell everyone of all my wonderful accomplishments, my worldly travels and possessions, and about the mansion I live in, but here is the real deal.
I wake up in the morning, I look in the mirror and say, my God, it's been 40 f'ing years since graduation and I don't look a day over 80. I have laugh lines, stretch marks, and arthritis. I still put my pants on one leg at a time, sometimes if I lye on my bed I can put both legs in at once and leap onto the floor as I pull those suckers on. But the last time I did that I hit the dresser and fell to my knees. Still half dressed. And a goose egg in the middle of my forehead.
I have had happiness and sorrow in my life, I have a family who I love and adore, I have a roof over my head and I laugh a lot. I enjoy the sounds of song birds and I still can see the beauty of the sunrise at dawn and the skies at night. I am happy, I am able to work, I spend time with loved ones and that is what means more than anything to me.
I need less material things. I have more gratitude. And tomorrow may I wake up, look in the mirror, pretend I don't give a shit about the cracks in my face and put on a sun dress (it's a lot easier and less painful).
