January 12, 2013, after weeks of struggling to set up this blog website, I published the first post, “My Final Season: How I Choose to Live It.”
Today, I began this post with what I wrote three years ago:
“As a 70-year-old, I faced reality. Approaching my final season, it’s time to make a choice. My final season, as defined by ME, is the time to focus on ME. My inner voice spoke to ME. I listened. God wants to direct me down a new path. A new journey. A new venture. A time to explore and discover ME. In this final season of life, I plan to open new doors.”
Beginning this blog opened my space up to new people, places and things. I have gone far beyond my own expectations in this discovery of ME.
Blogging took ME down a path to connect with other bloggers who, many without knowing, inspired ME to expand my world. With confidence, I went outside of my comfort zone, explored and discovered:
Mindfulness – Adult Coloring Books for Stress Relief
Ancestry Research – Maternal Family History
I also want to express gratitude to those bloggers who shared information and thoughts about:
- positive affirmations;
- random acts of kindness;
- expressions of gratitude and thankfulness;
- spiritual uplifting; and
- healthy eating.
Motivated by these bloggers, I expanded and/or incorporated healthy practices into my lifestyle. This has improved the overall quality of my life; and, I am on a path to build a healthy mind, body and spirit.
As I continue down this journey to define ME, expressing gratitude for the doors that have opened and the new doors to open.
Happy Blog-A-Versary to ME
