Upon the renting of a sports car, as I clearly enjoyed getting up to speed on the highway, my husband reminded me of days when I was younger and a little more reckless behind the wheel. I think he was glad those days were over or he might have been a little fearful for his life!
There was a time that I longed for those more reckless years! I was so upset that I had so much more caution in my day to day life.
I now have a sense of calm about the maturing. I still enjoy some adventure, but a different level.
I think the goal is maintaining a youthful spirit while allowing the slow down to take its course.
