18 Feb You’re an old soul… and that’s perfectly fine…
“How old would you be if you didn’t know how old you were?”
Me? Probably 65.
“Early to bed, early to rise,” is my life motto.
Well other than, “I got 99 problems and my knees are all of them.”
But to be honest, I think having an old soul is a blessing.
I’ve lived a pretty unique life in my 26 years.
A life that some don’t live in a full lifetime.
I’ve seen beautiful places, filled with beautiful people.
I’ve loved fiercely and boldly.
Felt heartbreak and heartache.
I’ve watched death take the life of two perfect souls.
And the birth of two more.
I’ve seen solitude become reality,
And reality become unimaginable.
There’s been days that I feel broken and beat,
Motionless to which way to run.
I’ve been confused and unfocused, unhealthy with my words and actions.
But there’s been more days of self discovery and good intention.
And the days of trial and error are still to come,
But to know I have lived through it all,
Tells me that this old soul, is one to be proud of.
And that this old soul, has a lot more living to do.
So catch me in bed at 9pm most nights,
Drinking sleepy time tea and blissfully writing.
Watch me drift off into a daze, in the passenger seat, staring out the window,
Dreaming of the days to come.
Find me morning after morning,
drinking black coffee, two ice cubes, out of the same
Little Erin mug.
On Sundays you’ll find me praising freedom,
And a valued life.
My solitude is important and something I believe should be.
My capability of being alone
and thoroughly enjoying it
seems to counterbalance my need for established conversations and
in depth discussions.
As I continue to challenge myself to discover a new-found peace within all the chaos.
Because chasing life is a priority,
One that this old soul,
will always crave.
“Be consistent in your voyage to find the things in life that make your soul radiate, and your heart beat fast.”
Because full knee replacements aren’t as scary when you’ve lived a life like this.
You’re just an old soul and that’s perfectly fine..
How old would you be if you didn’t know how old you were?
