Today is my 45th birthday.
I figure 45 is about the half way mark. If all goes well, with modern technology, I may live until 90. Now for my clients who have survived cancer, climbing accidents and hippo attacks (yes, it’s true) I know that life is precious and that I can’t take anything for granted.
And, as the eloquent line from 17-year old Miley Cyrus’s new song “The Climb” tells us, it’s not about reaching the top of the mountains, it’s about the climb.
It’s about the journey of life.
So being at the ½ way mark, I have to check in and ask myself, “am I living my life by design or by accident?” “Am I enjoying the journey?”
