Well, as we all know that tongue stuck like glue to that pole.
Sometimes I feel just like that tongue.
STUCK! STUCK!! STUCK!!!
It's like there is some invisible glue just holding me down. I want to get up. I want to move forward. I want to make big changes. So what's stopping me? Why do I feel like there are barriers crisscrossing my path?
That's when I start going around the house singing "I am strong, I am invincible, I am WOMAN". (this is the point where my mom usually goes quietly to her room, shuts the door, and turns down her hearing aids)
I have been doing a lot of pondering in the last week. You know since I found out that all of my earthly possessions were illegally dispersed (do you like how nicely I put that?)
In less than three weeks I will be turning 62. OUCH!!! I would never have envisioned starting over at this age, but I know that I can do it, and turn those lemons into lemonade. I may not have everything I need right now, but I have everything I need to move forward.
We all have things we need to move forward from, so, I hope you will join me on my journey.
It may be a bumpy road at times, but that's what makes life interesting. You never know who you will meet on that road or where the road will take you.
I have started to purchase a few things for my move next summer. It's been 40 years since I've had to furnish a home from scratch, and my budget will be just as limited this time as it was then.
Hooray for auctions and thrift stores and the kindness of friends and family!!
So what is my favorite thing this week?
It is the ability to move forward, to follow that unfamiliar road, and to share it with you.
