Happy Birthday to Me!
Yes, 62 years ago today I came into this world with a mission!! 62 years later, I'm still trying to figure out what my mission is!
I thought for awhile that maybe it was my creation of Minnie Pauz and being able to help so many women lighten their journey through you know what...but seriously, was that a mission or just an accident? Afterall, it didn't happen until I was 49, so what was the point of the previous 49 years?
I think of a mission as something you have planned for a long time and then you work towards a goal, knowing what the goal is--and then you accomplish the mission, right? My life hasn't got a lot to do with goals or planning, it's been mostly REACTING to circumstances that for a long time I thought were totally out of my control. That's truly one of the benefits of reaching this age....hindsight! NOW I can see that I was in control the entire time, just making stupid decisions.
So now, today, I'm going to set a new mission for approximately the next 30 years of my life. Considering it's the LAST 1/3 of my life I need to give it some thought and will post it later, but the first part of my mission I started 2 months ago when I started walking every day....to continue getting healthier as I grow older! I finally understand what it means to say "It's never too late to....."
To prove that, I SKIPPED 10 steps this morning on my walk!!
