Growing Up

 Isn't it funny how the things we couldn't wait to grow up to do we out grow?  

I was talking with a friend about some of the things we use to do like go to clubs, hang-out all night, drinking a bit too much and of course all the things we just weren't supposed to be doing. The things that we use to enjoy so much at the time.  The funny thing is now those things never seem to cross our minds anymore, and the responsibilities of our lives have shaped our time and interest. 

But, what really hit me was how long do can someone keep doing the same thing before it becomes the same old thing.  I am grateful to have ever growing and changing interest. There are only so many parties and clubs you can go to before they are all the same club and parties with the same people doing the same old thing.

In time I think we all realize that we desire things and events that means something to us, things that.... well let's be honest things that matter like family, good friends, good health and our quality of life.  Now the things I look forward to are so much more simple, like waking up every morning  :) 

Life is a continuous work in progress. We age, but it doesn’t mean that we are old. It just means that we have grown and our interest have changed. Not saying that the party is over it just moved to grown-up room.  

What matters to you?

Love and blessings in divine order
