We all hopped into the car to try out the new Golden Ears Bridge and visit my parents in Maple Ridge. Instead of the usual hour, it took only 30 minutes to get from door to door!
For some reason, I my eye caught the old photo frame shaped like an old house, with each window containing a picture from days gone by. We saw a picture of mom and dad in front of the old Calgary skyline above what was about to be the site of the Calgary Saddledome that had not even been conceived, let alone built.
I asked mom, “How old were you when you guys took that picture?”
“Hmm…. We were 31 at the time.”
Looking at mom, over 30 years later, the years have been really good to her. She’s happy, healthy and is enjoying her retirement.
Right now, I’m 33, still wondering, still struggling, trying to figure out what to do with my life. I always feel like there’s something more to the life that I’m leading right now.
I’m doing my best in everything that I do. But I always feel like I’m missing something… and my mind can’t grasp it. And that’s frustrating. If my mind can’t even comprehend what the matter is, how can I go about fixing it?
I can’t relax about it because time is so short, and I can’t afford to make a mistake – too many people are depending on me. And I will not fail them.
What am I missing? How can I figure it out?
