Dreams, goals, and wishes

Dreams, goals, and wishes
Dreams, goals, and wishes… I think that the pandemic has impacted my desire to live life to the fullest. I decided years ago that I would live a regret-free life, so the older I get, the more I strive to make my dreams come true. I posed this question on Facebook, “If you could accomplish...

Did you jump or tiptoe into 2021?

Did you jump or tiptoe into 2021?
January is always a time for reflection and goal setting for me, and many others, but this year more than ever before seems to be challenging.

I have also been divorced for 18 years, so my experience of Father’s Day is different. My daughters always went to their dads, so my... Read more »

Do you keep a journal?

Do you keep a journal?
My first experience with journaling came when I was around nine or ten years old with a little locked diary to write my daily thoughts. It is a practice I have continued through my entire life. What once was a log or record of my day has evolved and become so much more. Often I... Read more »

What will you miss?

What will you miss?
I went for a walk on my lunch break earlier this week, and I walked past my old apartment. My three daughters and I lived there for 11 years, moving in when they were only 5, 7 and 9 years old. It was small for us, but for me it was a wonderful home. I... Read more »

Life is a complex matter

It is challenging to choose just one; however, this quote by Walt Disney resonated with me during normal life, but especially now at this time. He was quoted as saying, “I always like... Read more »
