Today Becomes Tomorrow

This is an excerpt from Life In The Boomer lane’s – Guerrilla Aging: Losing Youth, Gaining Perspective. The guest writer is Darcie Purcell.  Darcie can be visited at Being 40: Shift Happens. I loved this paragraph, (not so much the new, much younger husband part). Go to to see the complete post. What we do, how we behave every day matters and it sets us up for the following day and the day after that. We too often get caught in the rush and race, instead of the smiles, hugs, and reassurances. Enjoy.


I still don’t like being the old lady in the stands, but that’s for me to maneuver and come to terms with. My BIG realization is that as the old proverb states…drop by drop the bucket fills. What I do today matters. The attitude I choose today matters. What I put in my mouth today matters. How I decide to treat my son today matters. How I decide to treat my coworkers today matters. How I decide to treat myself today matters. Laughing today matters. Slowing down today matters. Hugging a friend today matters. Calling my sister today matters.  The next time I am going to be in those stands I will probably be watching my grandson play football (next to my very handsome much younger new husband!!) and it will come probably twice as fast as 44 came at me.

I am complicated and seeking - joy and sorrow, country and city, competition and cooperation. After behavior of a gregarious nature, I require down time to refuel. My loves are children, family, friends, reading, writing, blogging, fitness, and health. I feel most alive when I stay true to my core values. Beauty makes me happy, pain helps me grow.
