It's my turn
Saturday, September 24, 2011
Recently, I celebrated my 59th birthday. As usual, my family kept asking me what I wanted for my birthday, and I found myself answering with my mother's words "I really don't need anything" Truth is, what I wanted, they couldn't give me.
I used to be full of energy- never sitting still. I used to be able to eat what I wanted and would burn the calories off. I realize we change as we age but I don't think we change this much.
What do I want? I want my energy back. I want to be the size I think I am.
I want to be able to put on my sneakers and not get out of breath. I'd like to look at my shadow and not see "Humpty Dumpty"
What do I want for my birthday next year? I want to be me again.
