We all have our own world we create and live within, right? Hopefully we wil be
couragous and adventurous to expand our world to suit us as we find a need to
change it due to chance, circumstances (of life) and our desires to fulfill our in-
ner needs, yes?  

I’m thinking long and hard about what my world is coming to. First off, I’m often
surprised I’m still here (but for the grace of god) though I have a strong incentive
to out live my wolf (70%) dog because of my commitment to protect him. He’s a
24/7 animal with specific responsibilities on my part.  

I try not to be opininated, to stay open minded, and I think I should to get along
with others because being Here (on earth) with others is a blessing.

I don’t want to be the odd woman living in the woods, but I want to live in these
woods I’m fortunately living in. I want to hold onto to my “big city” cultural ways
and be in touch with the world. I want to be enthralled  with being alive.  

My heart is beating fast thinking about it. I don’t want to lose my courage at this
stage of my life, I don’t want to have the view of myself as being too old or ill to

Any thoughts are welcome.

    • that I read your comment on Janets blog this makes more sense to me. Yes you are here because of the grace of God so go ahead and LIVE each day to it’s fullest. Do things that cause you joy...even if it’s only for a minute. Rejoice in the good things and focus only on them!

    • Yes I totally agree with what makes you happy and have no regrets later...too often we tend to do things to make others happy and the end result is we are the ones that suffer...I know this for sure cause I have been doing it most of my life...having said that I am relearning to be more assertive to my needs than passive/aggressive.

    • Thank you, Ladies.  ;o)

      It’s just a week that dh announced his wanting a divorce and the blog was written weeks ago, maybe a month? He did spur me on for finally buying the violin I‘be been drooling
      over for a year now, and I went out to dinner by myself for the first time ever on Sunday.
      It's a local road side restraunt type place and some neighbor friends came in so I had a great deal of fun. I didn't mind eating by myself before they arrived, so maybe there is a hope for me yet.
