The Long Walk Home

[Flying Gma is pursuing her life long dream of flying, has an amazing eye  for photography, and can wrestle a bathtub with one hand!  Jeanne asks, “What changes would you make in the second half of your life if once you got there it wasn’t what you thought it would be? Believe me it comes faster than you think it will…”]

I imagine the next half of my life will be a blur it will be like a worn movie  reel that fast forwards through time from present to the future. It will be the focus on the joys and pains of forgiveness. I am human. No matter how hard I try I will make mistakes. But how  I move forward from these mistakes will define the next chapter in my life.

The path I take will lead me down the unknown road. Life plans will be attempted, thwarted, and lost.  It is from these lows that will make me want to return home.

It will be a long cherished walk  providing time for reflection of the distant memories as each heavy step  propels me towards the future.

I will take the  Long Walk Home on the path that leads me  to embrace my loved ones and relish the next unknown chapter in my life. The return home will be my sunset on the horizon.

What is your sunset on the horizon?

  1. There is a direction I head, a place I wish to be, and each day is another day closer and another day not there. There are the consequences of the past and the hope of the future. I walk.

  2. i just want to be confident that I’ve left the world a better place, that I’ve contributed to the body of knowledge, and that my children know the value of kindness and service. It’s a long list of nebulous concepts, I know. But when I’ve accomplished that, I think I’ll know. And then I’ll sit back and enjoy that sunset 🙂

  3. As usual, lovely post!

    And as for me, the sunset includes getting all three children out of the nest – but done so only so that the next sunrise on my horizon can begin!

  4. The first half of my life I worked like a crazy woman, raising kids, going to graduate school (twice), trying to perfect hobbies like sewing, cooking, etc. Now in to the second half I don’t like to be rushed or pushed. I’m taking my own sweet time enjoying the ride.
