I was watching another Korean drama, as usual and one of the male leads was talking about how his life was bitter because he lost hope of seeing his daughter married, and retiring peacefully to volunteer in Africa and help the 200 million hungry people there. His ex-wife, a beautiful human being that he foolishly lost and reconnected with recently said “Well people these days live to be 100. So at 50, you’ve only lived half of your life. So you can spend the next half of your life making your dreams come true.”
Frankly, I kind of got screwed out of the early part of my life, grew up poor, abused as a child, spent my teens in group homes and have spent most of my adult life just working and surviving.
Obviously, a lot of people are in the same boat.
Anyway, I hope I live to a ripe old age so I can have a better second half of my life, and spend the next few decades making my dreams come true, like the old dude in the drama.
I’ve had my share of loss and things falling apart, so I’d like to live long enough to see the other side of that coin and experience abundance and happiness.
Wish me luck. 15 months ago
