Usually on Wednesdays, I come here to share with you stories of some of the paranormal experiences I’ve had. Today though, since it’s a milestone birthday for me, for some reason 45 has always felt like it would be a milestone, I thought I’d just come by for a little chat. In my younger years, I thought that when I turned 45 that my life would be perfectly “together”.
Well, let me tell you…it isn’t. That statement isn’t a complaint though. In many ways, I am very together. One of the things that I thought would come with aging is definitely turning out to be true, and that is that as we get older, we really get to know ourselves better. Not only that, but I am finding that I am much more comfortable and confident in who I am as I get older too.
It seems to me that while some have their lives together more than others, that even the most together seeming of us still have things that we’re working on. Change and growth are constants in every life. All of us probably had the notion that when we grew up that we would have all the answers and be able to do whatever we wanted, whenever we wanted. Even writing that sentence made me chuckle. While it isn’t necessarily true in the sugar plum version many of us had as kids, it is definitely true in other ways.
One of the biggest nuggets of wisdom that I seem to be holding as I turn 45 is that while we can’t always choose everything which happens in our lives, that we can choose what we do with what comes. We can roll around indefinitely in the inevitable muck which we all have to wade through at different points in our lives, or we can roll around for a little while, then sit up and make ourselves a mud pie.
This year, I chose the word live for my theme of the year. So far, I am doing just that. I’ve already had a few bumps and bruises along the way, but I have to say that so far 2017 has been a pretty good year. For the most part, I’m pretty happy…doing work that I enjoy, meeting new people, being myself without reservation, getting out into the world more, stepping away from less than positive influences, and most importantly opening back up to possibilities.
As the year continues on, my wish for all of us is to live a rich, full, joyous, love-filled life. I want to thank you for being here with me on my journey. As you know, this blog is a place where I come to express myself creatively as well as to share experiences and life lessons….and to talk about the paranormal and spirituality. If there’s ever anything that you would like to see me cover here or on my YouTube channel, please feel free to leave a comment or send me an e-mail.
Time for me to get out there and enjoy my 45th. No matter where you are, you can help me to celebrate my birthday by doing something which makes you happy. Ready…set…go!
