We turn not older with years, but newer every day, says Emily Dickinson. I ran across this quote of one of my favorite poets this weekend.
I have been dreaming about being in my 40’s since I was 12 and here I am with both feet immersed. Absolutely, it is totally different than the dream, actually way better, thank God. As I stand in the waters, I’m not dreaming of life in my 50’s or 60’s. I’m taking it all in, because like Emily says, with all the newness happening around me, within me, there is so much to drink in.
