In 2017 I turned 55. When I was around 50 I had an epiphany, of sorts, or I simply "grew up" and gained clarity. So much made sense. Finally! It was as if I couldn't believe things previously were so unclear. When they say "with age comes wisdom." It's no joke. So if you are under 50 - you have that to look forward to!
2017 was mierda - crap! Most people I know had a rough year in one way or another. All we can do is look forward. Decide how we want to chance. How we want our surroundings to chance. And how we are going to make it happen. There is no win or fail. We simply grow and evolve.
I have been more than AWOL on the site for a lot of 2017. Health issues, issues with family's health, pretty much everything you can think of slammed at me in 2017. The start of 2018 hasn't been worse (TYG) and therefore, I am grateful! There is so much to be thankful for - and I remind myself of all of the reasons daily. I laugh so I don't cry. I stay busy so I don't remain idle and think of all that could be worrying. I am determined to make 2018 better, regardless of outside influences.
There is so much joy all around us. Embrace it. Not just because of the negativity that strikes, but because of it. My to-read pile of books (no, I will never conform to a Kindle) is full of positivity and ways to better myself and encourage those I love.
Life is what you make it. <3
