Published in 2008, the average life expectancy is 78.4 years.
Monday is my birthday and I will be thirty-five. The past few days I have been hyping it up. Everyday I have been waking up saying “it’s my birthday!” Fiesta has been fun and excited. It has helped get the celebration started.
Then it dawned on me… I have already lived almost half of my life.
Today I have been in a funk. I have been dragging and slow. The gray skies are not helping.
To cheer myself up, I decided to start subtracting the years instead of adding the years. I only have about thirty-five more years to live. I need to make the most of the time that I have left. There maybe more wrinkles around my eyes and my body becomes more achy, but I am only getting younger. Or, that is what I am going to tell myself….
