I am not just a woman - I am a human being

Wednesday, February 20, 2013

Getting ready to turn 50 has been quite a time of introspection for me. I had a realization while driving to work the other day. The hormonal changes that happen to a woman and what we lack in estrogen we make up in heart. This change has softened me and I find a new sensitivity to all things. I realize that I don't categorize myself as a woman now - I choose to be a human being. I see with new eyes the needs of others. It takes my mind off of myself. I aspire to be the best human being I can be. To live each day well.

    What lofty goals!! I truly hope you achieve them....... you're already more than half way there just by recognizing where you want to go. emoticon
    The trick is to take time to look inward.....so few people want to do that for some reason. Maybe they're afraid of what they will find.

    In you ----- you found a kind, generous, caring soul. So.......be the best 'human' you can be - even with less estrogen!!!!! emoticon

    Yes.....the hold food has on us is amazingly strong. There are so many factors to consider. We all bring our baggage to the table - but I believe we all have the inner strength needed to clean up our acts and get healthy. At least, i want to believe that.
    I know I'm trying my best.
    BTW.....I'd love to go to California.. I have lots of family there. But these days -- traveling is a bit much for me (healthwise). I have great memories of times past, tho'......
    Stay in touch, OK??

    ps....love your kitties.....I miss mine. Now, I live with a crazy, loveable doxie, named Lucy who OWNs me!!
