Today I tiredly sit and daydream that of the most glorious birthday wish: to run at lightening quick speed. As a working mom, I think about how amazing that would be to wear a lightening bolt on my chest. I could be infinitely more efficient, infinitely more productive, and much less tired if I could move at the speed of light. Dinner could be done in 3 minutes, the laundry could be folded and put away in a flash, a marathon could be checked off my bucket list, and the bathroom could be spotless in a blink of an eye. *Sigh* Amazing it would be.
In reality, I am just another year older which means my hairs are a little more gray, my knees are a little more achy, and my metabolism needs another jump start. Another year means I can’t eat two slices of cake for dessert (or one for that matter – I should have an apple slice with water), and I have to work that much harder to lose this baby weight. I know it sounds like my glass is half empty, I certainly know that it’s not…but sometimes, some days, I just wish I could run, crackle, and light up the sky like lightening.
