What Do I Want to Be When I Grow Up?

This question is generally asked when you are five, or graduating from high school or starting college.  However, I am asking this question now as I face a milestone birthday–the big 6-0!!!!  There is no way this can be true!  I do not feel like I am that age–in my mind and my heart I’m much younger.  However, the calendar tells me I will soon be eligible for those senior discounts! (I guess that is one good thing about growing older!!)

They (whoever that is) say that “age is only a number”, “you are only as old as you feel”, “60 is the new 40.”  I do believe that you are only as old as you feel and I feel like I am way younger than 60–at least mentally.  Physically, yes, I can tell that I am no longer 20, but I am still in good health and I do NOT feel like a 60-year old woman!

So as I prepare for this milestone birthday, I find myself asking–“What do I want to be when I grow up?”  There are so many things that interest me which I hope to try in the future: writing a blog (already working on that one!), improving my photography skills, learning to play the keyboard, owning my own business, and traveling across America–to name just a few.  The list is almost endless!

I know God is not done with me and I am looking forward to seeing what He has planned.  We will all face this feeling of getting old at some point in our lives.  However, no matter our age, God still has plans for us–plans for good and not for evil–plans to give us a future and a hope.

The future is bright and I am excitedly looking forward to a new decade!  I cannot wait to see what I do become when (and if) I grow up.  I would love for you to join me on this adventure as I  discover all that God has planned for my future!  Hang on–it will probably be a wild ride!
