After forty
came freedom.
No one relying on me
My dreams became
priority.
Embracing fun and beauty:
Shoes that make me dance
VW Bug that makes me laugh.
Writing stories and poetry,
then releasing them to readers.
Studying for that masters degree.
No one to stop me reaching.
No tethers constraining me.
After forty
possibility
became reality.

    Very true. But just you wait, even more freedom awaits you once you reach the age of retirement. Then you’re truly free!

    Hooray! Celebrating with you, that life is unfolding in a way that you have dreams of your own to pursue.

    I love the energy of these words, peaceful and empowering. πŸ–€πŸ–€
