Future Thoughts

As we move into middle age, my friends and I, we have more discussions around what we see ourselves doing next.  The children are out of the house, some are retiring, some have had serious health issues and we are presented with opportunities for reflection on what is really important to us.  For some it is taking time to enjoy life more, for some it is finding more ways to give back to the community, for others it is realizing it is time to step back and encourage our younger peers to move into our roles and shake things up a bit.

I like all of these possibilities.  And the more I consider these options and their variations, the more I begin to trust that those coming after us are smart, creative, dedicated and energetic in their willingness to step up.  I can also trust that my peers are smart, creative, dedicated and energetic in their willingness to make room, support and applaud those of any age who are not afraid to do the shaking, or who might be a little bit afraid, but will do it anyway.
