Okay, this time I mean it!

I've been here for long enough to have figured out what I need to do...just listen and make one good choice at a time. It's simple, but it's not always easy...but who am I to run away from a challenge!

I'm a survivor of constant dieting since high school (somehow already 50+ years ago!), long distance running, multiple falls from horseback, and weight gain from my own poor habits and "knowing it all." But, despite arthritis, I'm still mobile and active - what a gift!

Time just seems to slip away, and the older we get the faster it seems to go...and I've still got growing to do. I want to be more mindfully grateful. I want to appreciate and make good use of each moment I'm given, give my full attention to whoever is in front of me, and just "be here now."

Love your background photo! Which lighthouse is that? I LOVE lighthouses!!!! We may be going to one sometime soon! Hope the tracker stays with you a little longer this time! My fitbit flex is a year and a half old now and starting to show signs of being weak...may have to get a new battery. But, pretty good all this time! Hope I don't need to buy a new one...may consider Mysync next time. or the garmin Vivo...that one reminds you to get up and move-you been sitting too long! emoticon
