Living, Learning and Loving

8 Comments

Following a life-threatening illness in 2010, I finally exhaled, opened my eyes, and realized tomorrow was not promised.  Understanding and accepting that I had more yesterdays than tomorrows.  At sixty-seven years old, I decided it was time to start:

  • Living life to its fullest;
  • Learning new things; and
  • Loving me

In doing so, I feel Empowered to

  • Let Go of the unnecessary baggage I carried around for most of my life;
  • Say No to “my wants and desires,” and
  • Say Yes to “my needs.”

During my early transition phase, I was seeking to “find my true self “ and “identify my needs.”  To accomplish this, I had to exit my comfort zone to explore new experiences.

The journey I have chosen to follow is challenging, but it has opened the doors to exciting new places, things and people

  • Yoga Classes
  • Aqua Zumba Classes
  • Spiritual Meditation
  • Journaling
  • Blogging  
  • Social Media
  • Container Flower Gardening

Closing old doors and entering new ones has brought peace, happiness, love, tranquility and serenity into my life.
