The familiar feels safe and so often that’s a good, important thing. But sometimes we cling more than we should; we hang on when we know it’s time – or even past time – to release. We cling to hindsight because we have already been through it, and we fear the unknown. Time only works one direction so letting go and leaping is always a risk.
But you know what? Don’t let that fear get to you. You don’t need to get brave, you’re already brave. Getting out of bed is a risk. Driving a car is a risk. Life is a risk. Get over it. The scariest part is just before you act. Pray, then leap. Once you’re in the air the view is better, the air is fresher, and you’ll figure it out.
I am a wife and mom and, like so many of you, each day is filled with precious moments, funny moments, thoughtful pauses, a share of pain, a share of prayer, and way more random thoughts than I can reasonably account for or use - so perhaps I can put some of them to use here :)
I like to write, but I have not done enough of it in my getting-longer-by-the-minute life and I miss it. In this blog, I plan to enjoy a bit of writing and hopefully brighten your day by sharing thoughts, stories, serious stuff, fun stuff - basically, whatever seems relatable in any given week.
There are definitely days when I feel timeless, but that is not why I named this blog ImaginAgeless. And then there are those days - you know the ones! - when I am definitely feeling my age on the outside, even though inside my heart and soul feel 30 years younger (for some of you, that would land you right back in diapers, so just use your imagination) - but that is not why I chose this name, either, although it could have been.
I chose this name because I like to imagine what agelessness feels like. Sometimes, I like to imagine what it will be like when I see the face of Christ and eternity begins. Time will cease, and life will be ageless. Some days it is just gloriously terrifying to think about. Some days I don't want to think about it at all. And some days, I can't wait.
