I am Jae. I am married with two grown children.Both have families of their own. I have five grandchildren and one great granddaughter who is seven months old. I had the pleasure of meeting her for the first time this Thanksgiving.
I lost a lot of weight this year..not all that I wanted but I am still working on it...I have chronic depression and my husband has mid stage dementia...I also have two fur babies that sometimes keep me sane..other times drive me crazy.

I just figured out I have been here at Sparkpeople for ten years..time to finish this up
I am still working on losing weight and my health..I can't say if I will reach all my goals but I know this.. I will be taking life one day at a time...and doing my best

I pray that the last three months of 2018, are filled with nothing but
bigger blessings, new doors opening, big opportunities, and better health.

The most difficult thing is the decision to act, the rest is merely tenacity.

“And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.”

Personal Information:
Happiest at the ocean ..

Attaining lasting happiness requires that we enjoy the journey on our way toward a destination we deem valuable. Happiness is not about making it to the peak of the mountain nor is it about climbing aimlessly around the mountain; happiness is the experience of climbing toward the peak.

Other Information:
I am a a minimalist lifestyle with gratitude. I battle depression..I am caregiver to my husband who has dementia.. it has been the fight of my (our) life

I have learned that..

You can't go back and change an experience.
You can't make it 'unhappen.'

But you can change how you feel in this moment... about that experience.

You can change how you perceive that experience.
You can change what meaning you give that experience and what suffering or joy you create long after the experience has passed.
