I'm participating in this year's A-Z challenge, and so will be posting daily about a subject focusing on a letter of the alphabet.
Abandon. At first glance, it conjures up the negative: forbidding, fracturing, forsaken, deserted. But when I delve deeper, I discover a sense of freedom within the word. To live with abandon -- that is what I strive for in my old age now. I want to let myself go, forsake the judgment of others, and desert the boundaries of the life I am expected to live.
When I envision my future now, I see myself:
Throwing aside old thought patterns
Embracing new challenges
Opening myself to the surprises of the universe
Loving harder, wider and without blame
Abandon. I think I will like the taste of it.
