As you look back over your life, do you have any regrets?  Did you have dreams and aspirations prior to your marriage that you put on hold?  The break-up of a marriage can be one of the most difficult and emotional events in life.  It has been compared with going through a death.  Start living your life with no regrets.  There is nothing you can do about the end of your marriage.  Stop looking back.  Looking back over my life, I can truly say that I have only one regret.  I always wanted to jump out of an airplane.  I was about to do this in my twenties but decided against it.  Now that I am older, I don’t have the nerve anymore.  I know what you are thinking.  Former President George Bush (the father) did it at age 90, and I say more power to him.  It is not something I aspire to do anymore.  I did, however, get on the back of a motorcycle this year at the age of 60.  It had been almost 40 years since I went motorcycle riding.  Don’t let me be daring by myself.  Join me by all means.  Start dreaming big!  What have you got to lose?  Besides, you will have some great stories to tell your grandchildren and great-grandchildren.  My daughter and granddaughter loved the fact that I went motorcycle riding at my age.  They were proud of me.  I was a biker chick for a day.  Make new and better memories.  Try not to shock your family too much.  Who says it’s time to wind down as you enter the later years of your life.  It’s time to rev it up a notch! Your life is just beginning.
