I’ve been thinking about (and writing about, but that’s for another time) milestones and the passage of time. I’ve always tried hard not to get bogged down by the shoulds of life – I should be married, I should make more money, I should own my own home. But, and it’s a big BUT, it’s hard for me to move through life without marking time and acknowledging the milestones. Which I try to do non-judgmentally. Not being hard on myself. But we all know how that goes.
Anyway, I guess, since I don’t have the traditional ones (marriage, kids, house) I look to other things. For other things. Signs that I’m moving forward. Moving somewhere. Somehow. Not standing still or going in circles.
And yeah, a lot of this has to do with the fact that my 40th birthday was just a few weeks ago. And that I’m a hell of a lot less “settled” at 40 than I was at 30. Which is really pretty freaky when I think about it.
I probably should’ve warned you up front, this is one of those lame-ass posts that’s barely a post. Just a bunch of thoughts, cobbled together.
I’d love to know what you think about the whole milestones thing. Do you think about it? What you’re accomplishing, what you’ve accomplished and where you are in your life?
