I am grown up. It just hit me. I am grown up. No more "what shall I be when I grow up".
All my life I've been trying to figure that out. I always feel as though I'm on the verge of something. About to become famous, do a great work, or finally get it all together.
At age 64--almost 65--I have still been waiting for that...that moment of knowing I am grown up, doing what I dream of doing, having it all together. Being at the top of the hill.
Is it my imagination, or is the hill getting steeper?
Today I stopped to catch my breath and looked back. WOW! I'm a lot further up than I thought! In fact, some of my friends think I am successful!
I guess being grown up, being successful, is not a place you actually get to and stop. I'm not ready to stop, anyway! I'm still on my way up, and plan to keep climbing until I die. I am always becoming more, doing new things, growing deeper, wiser, and more capable. I guess I am a human becoming.
