I came across this Maya Angelou quote and thought long and hard about what it meant to me and my life. Yes. Let the truth be told , I was being “reduced” by things that were happening to me. For one I had abandoned my blog, which I love and miss dearly. I had let a host of interferences take over, succumbing to various interruptions. So this evening after everything was quiet, I picked up my pen again.
I’m at an age where all of a sudden I am surrounded by devastating diseases attacking loved ones, numerous deaths, sprinkled with untimely divorces, complicated family dynamics, and a 17 year-old son navigating the college search, all of which were chipping away at me little by little. I stopped and exhaled and decided to take control and reclaim myself and the bits of me that were disappearing, like my blog.
One thing I learned during my hiatus is that life is precious and each day should be cherished. Take care of your physical, mental and spiritual self and surround yourself with those who love and support you. Learn to say “no” to sh– you really don’t want to do. Make time for self, nourish and exercise your body daily, this is how I maintain my sanity.
So let me update you to a little of what I have been doing.
