You know, no matter how hard you try , LIFE is too big to squeeze into a box!
And you know what else? I have found I don't have to wait for my birthday or Christmas to open a gift ! Every day has something special when our eyes are open!
It is ironic that when I was still working full time, I talked to both men and women who confessed they eagerly looked forward to retirement. Kind of like that "Pie in the sky" dream. But after a few months a well dressed gentleman told me "I was never been more bored in my life and finally returned to work! Another woman I worked with said the same thing. "Once I got my house all cleaned and organized, I was climbing the walls!"
You can imagine how I felt some trepidation, yet a year later, I had already 'gone the extra mile and my body was ready for this new frontier. '
I found this to be a time of discovery! And what I love about life is there is NO age limit on learning! And now I have the time! There’s enormous satisfaction to be found in learning different things. And they don't have to necessarily be big things. (Small gift box)
My husband still works full time (and loves it). When he kisses me goodbye in the morning, he always says, "Do something FUN today!" .
For starters, I decided I wanted to cook the perfect hard boiled egg and peel it in a nano-second! So I watched a handful of videos on the subject and everyone swore there's was the best! Results: One problem solved!
Never Act Like you Know everything.
I met with a trainer at the gym to discuss what I wanted to attain and she took me through
the best equipment for me. She showed me some things with cables and weights and told me to have FUN (there's those words again) . Well I began to explore what I could do, and to my JOY almost immediately changes began! …
And last but certainly Not Least:
A year ago Spark friend, NILLAPEPSI, a wellness advocate, ntroduced me to do TERRA essential oils!
In Smart Mom's guide to Essential Oils, doTERRA through scientific study has proven to be #1 in the world. And so I am like the mad scientist in my kitchen learning how I can use these oils to our good health. (yes-many are ingestible)Here is something I tried today.
This was the best hot chocolate I have ever drank in my life! The thing that put a lovely Top note on it was a single drop of Wild Orange essential oil.…And to help wake up first thing, we take one drop of lemon or grape-fruit combined with peppermint and take three deep breaths.
Objects like garden tools may grow dull or rusty but may we NEVER allow our minds to do the same! Keep your mind vibrant and keep learning for life never stops teaching! …
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
P.S. did I tell you I learn so much from reading your blogs too?
