|Me, dancing like nobody's watching|
|Getting ready to soar into the sky|
|... and feel the sunshine on my face|
In two days, I'll be 50 years old. It sounds funny to say since I don't feel that old at all. I remember when I was 17, I wondered what I would look like at 30; when I look in the mirror, I don't see any difference except the usual 'life lines' that come along. Oh, and gray hair, but "Mocha Ash #4" takes care of that. :-)
I don't have any major life plans going on. My greatest accomplishment to date is my autistic son, who has grown into a handsome, amazing 25 year old young man. I like to say we 'grew up with each other.'
I am still a huge work in progress. There are areas of my life that I'm unhappy with; may this milestone let me examine myself deep within & free myself from all the mental blockage that I carry. I hope to speak my mind more freely; allow myself to feel more deeply, grow more confident with myself & be more kind/gentle with and to myself.
May I continue to get wiser in my faith and walk the path God puts before me. May I continue to be kind and compassionate to those in need; may I believe in love for myself and open my heart to the possibilities that "it" could happen to and for me.
But mostly, may I release my inner fears and live my best life. For another 50 years.
