I say this all the time...โ€Turns out my parents were right about time moving faster when youโ€™re older.โ€ Like Sarah, Iโ€™ve found my early foray into my 40s to be full and satisfying; like you speak of, I think a big part of that is a stripping back to what matters when there is a sense of โ€œthere wonโ€™t always be more timeโ€. Itโ€™s such a balance of living in the brilliant enoughness of now and respecting that this life is finite.

And ps Iโ€™m excited to dive into the friendship podcast. Post-2020, Iโ€™ve noticed the shift in who is still in my life, who fell away, who do I want in my life (current, former, new).

I love being in my 40s. I've embraced the freedom that comes with age and not being as worried about what others think. But oh I feel this urgency. What legacy am I leaving? What impact am I having? Who will remember me when I'm gone?

I really started to feel this after Rachel Held Evans died, and I realized that time is so much shorter than we want to believe. And I saw this wealth of work that she had left behind for her young children to remember her by and realized that I needed to keep writing it all down for my kids.

Good and thought provoking piece for today :-)

Time is so short isnโ€™t it? But I think that after the grief of realizing we wonโ€™t live forever, embracing the constraint of time can end up being so exciting. โค๏ธโค๏ธ xo
