Fabulously Fulfilled at Forty-Six: Have a Day you Dreamed of!

I’m grateful and humbled by all the warm birthday wishes I received today.  Aside from deeper laugh lines, wilder gray hairs, and more time spent in sneakers than high heels, I’m thankful for the following which keeps me recharged, tuned in, and willing to praise each new day: love, knowledge, grace, forgiveness, health, energy, ambition, and laughter

IMG_6172The biggest things I strive for in these middle years is to keep moving, focusing, connecting, dreaming, playing, and praying.  In a hurried world, it’s easy for me to neglect these birthday wishes for myself, but I thank God for another year and day to give it a go. Green light!

I hope to do my best to carefully sow and grasp the nature of the moment and fully glow and grow in it.  I try to embrace challenges and stages of change in myself and others.  The discarded calendar pages and infinitely made-over clock face prove change is the only permanent constant we have besides death.  With each fleeting breath, my greatest wish is to transform and discover a softer wingspan one to help me and my soul glide along more presently, pleasantly, and peacefully.  May each tomorrow grant a metamorphosis that floats all of us further than where we are today.image

Wolf Moon, Morning Boon, Grateful Dead Croon – Part I

On January 2, 2018, I took down my 2017 Bruce Springsteen calendar and reflected on the past year. That eve, I thumbed through the pictures of The Boss and pages of my celebrations, holidays, events, and milestones. I wish I could report that I reminisced with a cup of cheer and shouted a “New Year, New Me” proclamation, but you can scratch that from the script. Instead, I continued brooding over last year’s heartaches, the ones I’d erase if only I penciled them in. I ended up building a bridge for unscheduled griefs and leftover letdowns to crossover to and stain my new Peanuts Gang, “Happiness is…” calendar.   Continue reading “Wolf Moon, Morning Boon, Grateful Dead Croon – Part I”
