Happy 60th Birthday to me today in 2021. What's on my mind today? THIS.
It is the reality.
Thus, I'm celebrating simple things today.
I get to have a good cup of coffee and we have a warm fire in the wood stove.
At the moment, we have peace in our home with our little scottish fold kitties.
My cat whisperer husband and I.
We stayed up and fixed an electrical problem with our hot tub last night. Randy did most of the work on that, but I was his helper. I was on my way to the gym, but when I went outside in the cold to see what he was up to, I saw him working out there.
He started explaining how the circuits work, and I decided being his helper last night and learning a bit more, and most importantly, spending some time with him, was more important than a late night at the gym.
I will get to the gym today once I do enough college homework to be satified.
I get to go to the gym today.
I have a tiny bit of freedom left, I'll do the best with what I have.
Does it mean we are dark to look at reality?
Some of my friends may think so. This is when we learn who our fair weather friends are. I don't giggle and laugh as much as I used to over a year ago, I talk about real things.
It doesn't mean I won't laugh, as we must maintain a balance for sanity, but I won't stick my head in the sand either.
I'm still moving forward with my life, working and keeping myself healthy.
We all have these little battles every day, to combat dispair, and all that the world wants to throw at every single one of us right now.
I will refine my small circle of friends accordingly.
No, I won't have birthday cake today.
I will enjoy a normal healthy day of meals. I will enjoy the work I get to do. I will enjoy my homework and a few chores. Lately every day I've been making myself healthy little truffles.
Maybe I'll take a picture at the gym or at some point today, so I have a picture to look back on, yes, that was me on my 60th birtday in 2021. One of the strangest times ever in my life.
The author of the video asks a great question.
What can we do?
I will ponder this as well, as I go about my day, observing others in my community, and maybe see if there is a way I can help someone smile and get through their day in these strange times.
For now, I'm staying off the mainstream sites and my circle of friends becomes more meaningful, more real, and things will fall into place with the right people around us. I will see some of you in our online meeting link into today's Macro Accountability post inside the forum.
Have a blessed day!
For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope. . -Jeremiah 29:11
