one hundred and twenty

I have a birthday this month.
Not a milestone one.
Not yet.
But it's coming.

I don't necessarily fear getting older, but I feel a certain pressure.  For some, it may be the biological clock (cue the scene from When Harry Met Sally), for others, like me, it may be the 'what now' after having been home with the kids. I don't regret making home the priority, and my life has turned out better in so many ways than I had ever dreamed.
But I still can't help but feel I let go for a while of who I am, and now I need to get a grip again.
And I feel like the clock is ticking.
