Blog-A-Versary

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:

I also want to express gratitude to those bloggers who shared information and thoughts about:

  • meditation;
  • mindfulness;
  • positive affirmations;
  • random acts of kindness;
  • expressions of gratitude and thankfulness;
  • exercise;
  • 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
