Living the Future Now

Tuesday, October 07, 2014

In January - I wrote about my plateau and how I would keep focusing on the positive and maintaining if not losing. Well, I've been up and down since then - health issues - but I always come back to SP and tracking .... I wrote this: "I’m also seeing in my future the ability to travel in an airplane again – to visit my friend, my son, go to meetings, conferences, etc. I thought those days were behind me. "

WOW - here it is October 7th and I did all of the above! (Thank you Barbara/Kindred for reading that blog and reminding me!) Was it easy ... no ... was it fun - YOU BET! I traveled, got new clothes, met lots of people, sang, and just luxuriated in Life ... Visiting my son in Duluth in July, I adopted the phrase "Live Large" ... that with everything I do, I will do with gusto! And, I will try things, as I can to the best of my ability.

As a result - I haven't wrote as much on the on-line boards and my Over 60s team as I would like - I do keep reading and sending goodies to stay in touch ... Isn't the journey all about Living Better? We (I) spend way to much time as it is with work tuned out, plugged in (watch the rock opera Tommy) ... I want to experience that which excites me ... that which brings beauty and pleasure - and share that with others as well.

So tomorrow I'm setting my alarm for 5 AM (I don't usually get up til 9) so that I can view the Lunar Eclipse in my area by 6:30 am ... this particular one won't be around again til 2036 (I think) ... so I am an Living the Future, each day, NOW! emoticon

    Dear Jackie,
    Congrats on your living large life style. You have earned and deserve all the joy you are experiencing and I hope there is more to come.

    As I experience taking care of my mother who is so sick I realize how we must seize the opportunity to enjoy life when we are well and able to. Also, that time marches on and when I don't take care of me I cannot take care of anything else.

    May God continue to bless your success and give you happiness and love each and every day. emoticon

    I loved to read your post about all your achievements. Good on you and congrats. You have so much to be thankful for. Thanks for sharing. I especially loved your expression about "luxuriated in life". I could borrow that from you!
