You have to have faith in yourself. Be brave and take risks. You don’t have to have it all figured out to move forward,

March 22nd. - Don’t wait for the perfect moment to start.
Aging gracefully means being flexible, being open, allowing change, enjoying change and loving yourself.
It’s Monday and it’s Ok. I haven’t got the perfect plan to move forward this week, but I’ve some ideas how things might go and that’s enough to get me started. There is no perfect plan, because we all know the man makes plans, and God laughs. He might just have a different plan for my week than I do. That doesn’t stop from making my lists of what needs to be done though, If I don’t have a list, nothing will ever get done.
Moving forward is important if you want to make progress, but I can still be flexible and go with the flow. You always have other options. Y.A.H.O.O. is one of my favorite acronyms. You always have other options. Nothing is set in cement. We can change the way to go depending on what is needed.
If we don’t know where we are going, we’ll never get there, so it’s always good to have some kind of map to help keep you on track. Truth is that I don’t think I’ll have everything all figured out. Every time I think I have, something changes. Things are not always the way we expect them to be. Be we always have a choice to make as far as what we’d like to do. I want to keep moving forward and keep on going for as long as I can.
We all had a lot of plans that changed when the corona virus hit us a year ago now, and we all adapted and made changes to the way we did things, not necessarily bad ones either. We kept on going, doing what we had to do to remain safe.
We kept going and I’m not going to stop.
Stay committed to your decisions, but stay flexible in your approach.
