” Today is the first day of the rest of your life,” my sister said to me. She is so right. It is as if I am waking up like Rip Van Winkle, except that I remember the life I lived, and I want the rest of my life to be different. The old me is coming back, stronger and with more self-confidence. The gray has lifted, gone away. It could return, though with me being courageous, I will fight the gray to keep it at bay.
I remember two sayings from when I was young:: “keep on truckin,” and “a rolling stone gathers no moss.” From now on I plan to do both, truck and roll. I have the rest of my life ahead of me, a good 20 years at least. So onward I go, leaving all the gray in my dust. My life starts…Now!
