We hear it all the time: â€œItâ€™s not my first rodeo.â€ Thatâ€™s what we say whenever we’re talking about something weâ€™ve done before. Iâ€™ve been thinking about this phrase a lot as we enter this wild unknown arena called 2019.
Time brings with it the possibility for all sorts of experiences. You’ve got 365 days ahead, and yet, itâ€™s not your first rodeoâ€”or even your second. Each year comes and goes one day at a time. You collect friends and memories and knowledge. And when you REFLECT on your experiences (and that’s comes naturally when you write about them), itâ€™s possible to collect a certain amount of WISDOM.
Letâ€™s do the math to see how much TIME youâ€™ve earned for all the rodeos youâ€™ve experienced:Â
If you are 30 years old, you have lived
and so onâ€¦
In this 2019 rodeo, youâ€™re adding:
525,600 minutes Â
So ride this bronco as if itâ€™s your last contestâ€”and spend each day, hour and minute of 2019 wisely.
