Day 160 – I Remember Him


I am awake, I am alive, and this morning, I remember him.

I don’t know him. He doesn’t know me. He rode by on his bike as I drove past. Our eyes never met but I saw his face.

He was young, late teens would be my guess. I saw him and I couldn’t help thinking, “He has no idea the adventures that await”.

He will fall in love. He will know ecstasy. He will know pain. He will know achievement and disappointment. He will take some chances. Others he won’t. He may regret both or neither.

In that second, I was simultaneously happy for him and envious, leaving me with yet another thought.

I am 56 years old and I pray somewhere at some point in time, a man or woman in their late 70s or 80s sees me or my picture and thinks “she has no idea the adventures that await”.

Because like with that young man, I believe that to be true.

Fly today, my friend. Shine today. Inspire today. LIVE today! Do not think of all the ways you can’t. Embrace all the reasons you must.
