Double nickles

"You are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream."
~ C. S. Lewis

I hit level 55 this week. 

I was just about to write how I don't feel 'that old.' Is 55 old? Probably to a twenty-something. I don't feel old, at all. I feel better than I have in a long time. It really is just a number. 

Still, I have lived a few years. So the following is is a quick, random list of some things I've learned, some things I am grateful for, and some things I need to remind myself about often. 

I am blessed. SO blessed.

Life goes by far too fast. Be here now. Seriously.

My husband is my Superman. “No cape.”

I love my children and grandchildren more than they will ever know.  I hope they do though.

Clean, healthy food is life.

Sugar is my kryptonite.

Sleep is the elixir of all.

Photography, writing, reading, music, and nature feed my soul.

Self-care is life-saving.

The best self-help is self-compassion.

Perfection is overrated.

All we need is love. Sing it with me.

I’m an introvert and it’s okay.

The laundry is never done. 

My alone time is for everyone’s safety.

I am enough.

The Golden State Warriors are the NBA Champions, again. YEEAAASS!!

My grandchildren are my tiny Zen masters.

I love going to the movies. I need to go more.

There is no angry way to say bubbles.

I don’t do heat. Yes, born on the third of July, but spring and fall are my favorite.

The sky is always blue, somewhere.

I’m 5'11" and have a serious case of RBF syndrome. This intimidates some people.

I overthink about overthinking.

I have everything I need.
