I actually was very psyched at the thought of turning 50🎉Frankly I’m thrilled at every birthday number as it truly is a privilege to be alive! Mike “ MadDog “ Adams sings it best”Everyday Above Ground is a Goooooood Day”!!!!
Turning 50 called me to really reflect on life! I reflected upon the many family and friends that inspired me along the way! The good, The bad and the Ugly. The events in my life that have taken place that have lead me to the lane that I find myself navigating !!
I received a journal for my 5-0 Birthday from a friend that I admire in so many ways. Thoughts spoken from this friend are always concise, brief, confident… well spoken words. The note card inside the journal encouraged me to take the blank pages and use as a canvas to express myself. Personal journaling has become therapeutic and a way of life for me.
The other benefit of the journal was it brought to my attention that someone can inspire, influence, challenge, support and encourage a positive direction and may not comprehend the game changing gesture and the positive result that one can inspire!
Transcribing in my gifted journal opened up a new way of life for me and even took me to wanting to blog! I’m not going to be the next LG and nor am I looking to be anyone other than ME! My creative energy is flowing and to me that is healthy and fulfilling !❤️ This gift taught me to encourage others, lift them up, believe and inspire people to be their best …. their best! And not look for any thing in return other than to sit back and see the smiles! 😀
Actions and words and gestures can lead to lasting impressions… things never forgotten! I’m going to take a cue from my wise friend to “keep living my life”… I’m going to try to be kind and choose my words and actions wisely….. hoping to bring out the best in myself and others!What life should be about! Time to go fill some more empty pages …and remember to watch my actions and words!! You never know who is listening and learning !
