Another Year

Fifty-five years ago, I was born the youngest of three children. I was quiet and shy, but I loved to perform dance. I was a perfectionist, and still am. Life happens, marriage happens, children happen, divorce happens. Life is challenging, but I’ve learned that I can only sacrifice so much of myself. I’ve learned that I need to fully respect myself and treat myself accordingly. Only I can make myself happy, but having the perfect partner, my current husband, helps tremendously. Happy Birthday to me.

The Gathering

The pier, it is a place where people like to gather.  You can gather your thoughts and evaluate your life.  The experience can be self transforming,  Walking its planks while absorbing the ocean scene, the sandy beach, the seagulls and its breathtaking surroundings is one of life’s simple pleasures.  Listening to the roaring sounds of the ocean waves methodically calms your soul.  The scent of salt in the air brings about a refreshing change or outlook on just about anything that ails you.  Indulgence without guilt.

No Tears

Although, it’s technically considered “hump day”, I was not pleased to have to deal with a hurdle today. I was so close to being in tears, but I gave myself a pep talk, and just dealt with it. As a result, other positive things transpired. Sorry, Wednesday, but nothing is going to ruin my day or night.
