|Happy days at my condo.|
Every two weeks, an intrepid group of bloggers participate in something called a Blog Off. We share our take on the same topic on the same day.
Today's Blog Off topic is "What are you carrying?" Good question. As I pondered it, while driving to my appointment today, I heard an interview with Dr. Marc Agronin, author of [amazon_link id="0306818531" target="_blank" container="" container_class="" ]How We Age: A Doctor's Journey into the Heart of Growing Old[/amazon_link]. He was discussing the qualities and essential parts of ourselves that we carry into old age. This got me thinking about how I would approach this Blog Off topic. What are the gifts I carry with me now that I did not see at 18? One thing is a sense of perspective. They're not kidding when they say "hind sight is 20/20". Today I think before I act. I look beyond the present moment. I have also managed to carry with me a general sense of optimism. Yes I have suffered the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune, haven't we all? But for me, behind it all, hope is always there. Today I carry with me the hope that my children will be everything they wish for themselves. I believe everything happens for a reason and that there are no coincidences. I honor my intuition and I also have some weird inkling that if I keep plugging away at this blog something will happen. I don't know what but I hope and it keeps me going. The MOST important thing I carry with me is my attitude.
