Growing old is mandatory

You know how that one goes, don’t you?


I had one of those mandatory things yesterday – part of the growing old process – a birthday. Don’t start asking me how old I am – age is a number, and mine is unlisted! (I wish I had made that one up myself!). Anyway, I’m not going to dwell on the growing old stuff, but on the growing up bit.

I had a lovely day yesterday, thanks to all the wonderful people in my life. At the end of the day, my husband asked me what my plans were for the year ahead. Well, actually, as crazy it may sound, I have no plans, except :

To get fit and healthier – for which I must exercise more.

To be more grateful every day – for life and the many blessings I enjoy.

To reach out to others and try more consciously to make their lives a little easier.

To use my talents and skills more effectively to make a difference.

May you be inspired – every day!

    I’d like to dedicate a quote for u- “There is a fountain of youth: it is your mind, your talents, the creativity you bring to your life and the lives of people you love. When you learn to tap this source, you will truly have defeated age.” Sophia Loren quotes (Italian film Actress, b.1934)
