I realize a few things in life I would love to pass on to others. One, “We don”t stop playing when we grow old, we grow old when we stop playing.” Two, “It is not the amounts of breath we take in life that matter, it is the moments that take our breath away.” Three, “Be grateful for getting older, it is a privilege denied to many.” Four, “It is never too late to become what you might have been.” and Five, “Imperfection is beauty, genius is madness, it is better to be absolutely ridiculous than completely boring.” With that being said, go out there and play, do something that will take your breath away in a good way, accept your shortcomings, focus more on your strengths, and have fun, don’t sweat the small stuff, follow your dreams and take steps to live your passion that will bring joy to your heart while helping others along the way. This is what it is all about. So if anyone out there is feeling the blues with another birthday coming, just shush up and enjoy yourself and life to it’s fullest each and every day. ❤

I am a perennial optimist
I Am Becoming the Me I Was Born To BeAs I journey through this part of my life I have discovered my next mountain. The key is to be the me I want to be in the world, as my gift back to God.
