Day 155 ~ Working On Me

2005 ~ My Boys and I
I remember the first time I noticed I had laugh lines (in a picture.)  "What are those? When did those happen?"  Isn't it funny how we don't appreciate something until it's gone?  Including our youth.

That was some time ago.  What I am struggling with now is that in the last five years... well let's just say that I look a little older.  Doesn't help any that I am a little older.  

Since turning forty-six I have had a big problem with aging.  Why? HELLO!! That's four years away from the BIG five O!  Well... that was two years ago... only two to go.

Do not get me wrong!  I love the year I was born... the era I lived... the history I experienced... the music I experienced... H O W E V E R . . . 

2011  ~  Calley and I
I think the main reason I am having issues with aging, is Calley/  I want to be around for her.  I want to be healthy for her.

I know that she will one day live her own life... I do not want to think about that day!   We'll cross that bridge when we get there.

Regardless... I say I want to be around for her.  However, I also want to be healthy for me.  Lead a healthy life and feel great about myself.  I currently am working on I have to work on me.  Meaning, I am working on the mental part of me... now I need to work on the physical part of me.

Hmmmm...  I just may be ready for that...

It is very important to generate a good attitude, a good heart, as much as possible. From this, happiness in both the short term and the long term for both yourself and others will come.    ~  Dalai Lama

Work harder on yourself than you do on your job.    ~  Jim Rohn

I am thankful for each day that I am given, so that I may do better than the day before. 

Blessings to all!!

210 days to go...

Nope, I'm half your age - and I bet that just made you feel a wee bit 'old' but I believe old is not in the way you look.. it's more about the way you feel.. When I was 17 I felt like I was in my 20's and now I feel 17 again.. while our bodies get old.. our souls are still youthful! So enjoy everyday and set goals.. that way you'll always have a reason to live :)
