  • Nov 1 2012: I wake up grateful that I have another day to experience. I try to see everything as an adventure, even the small things in my life. I've learned to have challenges, not problems. I ride my bike along the ocean path every chance I get and have realized that it is a different ride every time I do it because it seems like I see new and different things each time, I have learned to always carry my camera because of this so later I can look back at all the amazing things I have seen. I volunteer at a local thrift store where what we do helps the youth of our community and where I get to meet some awesome local folks I might not have met if I didn't do this. I try to watch the sunset while walking on the beach every chance I get, because it is a great way to say goodnight to the Universe and like snowflakes no two sunsets are alike. I fill everyday with music because music set my mood and fill my soul. I smile & laugh as much as I can in hopes that my smile & laughter becomes contagious and everyone catches it. I dress in colors, bright wonderful colors even if it's only hanging from my ears or hidden under a warm jacket, I know the colors are there. The most important thing I ever did though was after my last marriage ended, I decided to fall in love again and chose as my lover, life. I fell in love with life, it was the best choice I have ever made, and has to this point been an awesome love affair. I highly recommend it to everyone.
