    My mum made me realise when she said "God I'm 50 next year"

    You only get one shot at it.

    So many what if's buzz in your mind. Friends and lovers who come into our lives and make us happy and also leave and break our hearts.
    Family passes away and emotional and physical rollercoasters are endured by all.

    I could be anywhere in 10 years time.

    I could be married, have kids, I could be travelling the world or be a successful business woman, I could lose it all and be homeless, I could be dead.

    One minute you're a teen enjoying your days in the sun and having fun with friends. The next 30 years have flown by and you wonder where it's all gone.

    Scary stuff....

    Ignore my ramblings if you so wish :)

    The years go faster as you get older...in your teens you think it's gonna last forever.

    One day you're flashing your neighbours the next your memory is going and you forget to put your clock forward. Which in your case is only a few days :lol:

    But yeah live life day by day because you do not know what's around the corner, and it will soon fly by.

    Awhh thanks hun and I shall do :) I have decided to not keep looking at closed doors and focus on open ones. Cos no one on their death bed says "I wish I dwelled over things that little bit longer"

    Thats 100% your right hun I just believe that you get one shot. If their is reincarnation I'm gonna come back as a worm i can tell :eek:

    I don't think you've lived a long life at age 50! :eek: I'll be 45 this year. My father will be 85 and it doesn't seem that old to me now (I want him around for quite a bit longer thanks).

    I actually forget how old I am sometimes, I must be getting old. :)

    I actually find it comforting how quickly time flies. i like the thought that we are tiny specks in the cosmos and am happy to make no impression on the world at all.:)
    I figure ants' dont sit around worrying about their existence so why should I?;)

    It does concern me when I put it into context - I'm 26 and feel I've got my whole life ahead of me....But I've already lived more than half as long as my mum did. Scary thought :blink:

    :eek: Poohdog how rude! :p


    Well no it isn't long I guess but put it this way I have had 3 friends die in my lifetime. One was 11, one was 16 and the other died in februrary this year at 16. What I mean is people can die anyday and its an achievement to make it to 50.


    Whoa. That is certainly a wake up call :blink:
