This weekend we “Fall Back.” We set our clocks back one hour to signal the end of Daylight Savings Time. It will get dark much earlier. And I personally hate that. Because I find myself just not wanting to go out much after the sun is down. But that’s not good for me. That isolated way of living is what I did right after I was left. I don’t want to be that person now. Watching television, eating snacks, etc. It’s just one hour after all. It doesn’t have to take over my entire life.
The other side of the darkness of course is always the light. The sun will rise an hour earlier. I want to take advantage of that, too. Maybe it’s healthier to change my sleep habits to go with the seasons. Not of this planet, but of my life. What will I harvest for myself in the coming months? Will I stay on a good path and keep moving? See what’s ahead. I plan to. Because it’s too easy to “fall back” into my old habits. And I know that is a dangerous thing to do.
I’m making future plans. Seeing what movies will be coming out. Planning new shopping malls a little out of the way to go browse in. Having a friend over for dinner. Normal Life Stuff. I know it’s kinda weird that I have to remind myself to keep doing Normal Life Stuff. But I know you Leftat50’s know EXACTLY what I’m talking about. You’ve been there, done that, or maybe still do.
So, I’ll set my clock back this weekend. I’ll look forward to that sunny Monday morn, and I’ll invent the phrase “fall forward.” Then I’ll keep walking the good walk, into what I’m sure will be a lovely harvest sunset!
We all go through major life transitions when relationships end… Through this website, I will share my thoughts as I walk the path of “New-Self” discovery. It doesn’t matter which side of 50 you are on. The real question is, Are you ready to live life? To forge a Path of Your Own Making (For a change!)? Then stop dwelling over the What-Might-Have-Beens and join me. Share your thoughts here, comment on mine, and let’s do this together!
