I am in my forties. That realisation just hit me although I am four years into it already. I have never dreamt of this day, dreamt of living to this age. Forty was so far in the future when I was in my teenage years. Forty still seemed far away when I was in my twenties. I never thought about it when I was in the thirties. Now here I am!
Where have all the years gone to, three decades of them? It felt like such a short while ago when I was a teenager living life dangerously. Mid-life has whizzed past without me noticing. Despite determining to do it, I did not live life fully in the twenties and thirties. I feel that if I do not live life fully now, I may never know what it really is like. Most of all, I owe it to Wuan to make our lives together meaningful.
