And by crazy, I mean do stuff that you’ve always wanted to do like say, get a tattoo!
I got that when I turned 42 this year. I couldn’t afford to do an Elizabeth Gilbert but hey, at least I got the “LOVE” part covered. I call that Winning at Life.
Next on my life list is to run a full marathon. 42@42. 42 kilometres at 42 years old! I was thinking of getting that as another tatt but where should I have it inked?!
Confession time. I do not know how to swim properly. I have a phobia of some sort. I almost drowned when I was around six-years-old. And I am shit scared of going underwater and I will not venture beyond the five feet mark. BUT I am planning on rectifying the situation, facing the fear head on and letting my inner mermaid out. I will be enrolling at a swim school very very soon. Hold me accountable will you?
I got my driver’s license (after some much nagging from my kids!) when I turned 40 so I reckon getting my swimming act together should be a breeze. At least that’s what I’m telling myself!
There’s something about this quote that just makes me want to do things. Life is too short to be a scaredy cat. So here’s to doing more stuff that scares the hell out of you.
I am owning my 40s. I reckon I should get “go crazy in your 40s” printed on a gazillion t-shirts. There’s definitely a market out there.
Are you in your 40s? Done anything crazy lately?
