Today I am reflecting on July. Thinking back one year, five, ten, twenty-five, thirty-five years ago.
I was a young woman planning her wedding. I had dreams and wishes. I was excited.
Some of those dreams and wishes have come true. For that I am grateful. Others I am still working on.
There are things I would have done differently. Not regrets, just lessons learned. I am grateful for that. These past thirty-five years have not been in vain.
I do not think I could ever fit again into my wedding dress. I do not think I would want to. I like remembering what I looked like as a young 19 year old. I like seeing what I look like as 54 year old. I like the dream and the wish for what 55 looks like.
