PROMPT WORD: ENERGY
With deep nostalgia, I remember the amount of energy that I used to have!
Raising three kids, looking after the home affairs, finding time to exercise regularly every day, and meeting friends in the evening was the norm rather than the exception.
Now in my sixties, I am done after doing a quarter of what I used to do during the day, feeling like a need to lie down or at least plonk my backside in a recliner with a cup of tea or decaf coffee.
People tell me that growing older teaches us to value our free time and to use it wisely to rest our bones in between the daily chores.
Perhaps as I grow older, I should stop comparing myself to my younger self when I used to move around like a pet on zoomies but should appreciate the grace a slower demeanor brings to me.
Well, as long as I can look after myself and my home without asking for help from others, I should be grateful for the energy I do have still left.
