Happy Birthday to me!

Another year older today!

My brother requested an entry about how it feels
to be old! Hmmm... Just you wait buddy boy!!
Your not too far off!

The older and wiser self, just might get up on her
soap box.

I don't feel any older, except the physical part! :-/
I guess that's what matters though right?!


Let's see, I woke up, am breathing and still
functioning, so that's a good sign right?


Where to begin?

If I have learned anything in my journey through life,
it's to appreciate every day. Accept the gift of life and
the wonders of each moment.

The older I get the more I realize that life is really a short
snippet of our journey. I believe that there is so much time
and energy wasted on things out of our control.
I will try and learn to harness my energy and use it to
it's full potential.

As most of you know, I have spent the last year and a half
taking care of my physical self. Making it healthy and strong, and
trying to reverse the aging that occurs so quickly after 40! Yikes!!!
In the upcoming year I hope to stay present and active in each day.
To use all of myself and my resources, by giving back to that I believe to be true.

This was what I know for sure:
-I am thankful for this new year; a fresh beginning.
-I am glad that I can still enjoy each day and I have
family and friends that love me.
-I will spend this year figuring out what I can do
to help others. Where can I give of myself and how I can
make a difference. To Give back?

My wish is that our country remains optimistic about the new course that will be set by our new President and for us all to stay safe and feel secure.

May you all be blessed with Faith, Hope and Love!

Thanks for all the Birthday wishes!

Love,
Me
