You wake up one day and realize you’re ten years older than you were the previous night. Beyond the initial shock, how does this development change your life plans?

It’s every day I wake up and realize that I’m ten years older.

Where did the years go?

Were they spent as days or nights?

The shock of the years passing may abate.

When you realize that the path is—forward always!

Sometimes a backward glance  or two only to smoothen the way forward.

Plans? I stopped making plans a while ago.

There are goals, there are steps and there are ways.

It’s one day at a time, daily!

Is it ad hoc? You tell me.

Order in chaos, chaos when ordered.

What about you?
