It's March 8th. I'm officially 44-1/2 years old. Woo hoo!?!??
On the first Tonight Show, Will Smith talked to Jimmy Fallon about skydiving. Will decided that at 45 years old, he is at halftime since he has a good chance of living until 90. Will decided to skydive to kick off his "3rd quarter" of life in a strong way.
According to Will Smith, I will soon be entering my "3rd Quarter." I started thinking of life expectancy and what I still want to do. I have no plans of skydiving. My brother jumped out of two perfectly good planes when he was younger. I will continue to leave the crazy stuff to him!
I plan on living past 100. Why? I want to be here to see everything! I have no plans of leaving, really!
I do want my mind to be as sharp as it can be. I purposefully play word games and complete crossword puzzles to keep my brain from becoming mushy. I try to eat fruits, veggies and fiber-full cereal in an attempt to keep a my body healthy. I have great intentions for exercising, and I go to yoga class sporadically. (LOL) I keep in touch with friends and watch comedies.
Will my plan work? Gosh, I hope so. My husband says I live like I'm running from something. Maybe I'm running from illness and sadness. I don't want either of them to get me. I want to be the happy person, even when life puts hard things in my way.
I'm not making any plans to skydive or do anything crazy. Don't worry. I do admire Will Smith for his bravery, but I'll hang out here on the ground!
