"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.
