My motto is: "Be the change you wish to see in the world" by Gandhi.
There is so much wonderful in this world I want to keep working until all of it is beautiful and wonderful.

First I must continue to work on myself. Getting healthy, Getting Greener in all actions and being Positive in all areas. All this to be an inspiration to others around me and make everywhere in this world a wonderful and healthy place in which to be.

I will be 53 this year and emotionally I totter between feeling like I am in my twenty's with so much I want to accomplish and do to 60's with all the decisions of growing older brings.
Physically I look younger most people think I am 10 years younger.I attribute this to being a little plump- my wrinkles don't show as bad and never had the stress of a marriage. I do however do not physically feel like I am in my 50's either- the best of it all.

I am blessed I have a wonderful daughter and granddaughter. My mother is still here and is facing multiple challenges of getting older. I have a fantastic Aunt. all of which I stay in contact and see on a regular basis.

    Thank you for the blog comment!
    It is hard to age because it is so easy to project ourselves into the future and want certain things and set deadlines, but I think if they're either unrealistic or we don't want them enough, of course we never make it "in time". Ten years ago I seriously thought I'd have a kid and a house by now. But I'm actually very glad I don't!!!

    Hello, my friend. Thanks for asking.Court was a cake walk. Now I have to go back to the Probate court and be released from them. Then NO MORE COURT PAPER WORK, just Social security and Trust...less stress-I hope.
    Have a Wonderful Wednesday

    Thanks, but I only wear knee braces when I go to the amusements parks because I will be walking 6+ miles and need the extra support. :)
