I was going to on and on about more problems since last blog but why bring them up. Things happen, that's life. What I have to learn is to let go and move on.
The cup is half full, tomorrow is not promised, and you cant change what has happened in the past.
I turned 62 on the 19th. I'm still learning and have so much further to go. I've lived with feeling that the grim reaper is taping me on the shoulder and taping his watch.
I read and see where others here on Spark my and even older, have concurred their demons. I see others in the 60s and 70s who travel, hike, exercise every day and really sound happy. I want to be in that group. I'll never run a marathon, or climb a mountain, but I can still strive to be happy.
I'm still mobile. no cane or Walker. I can live independently. I can grow my container garden of fresh fruit, vegetables and herbs I've always wanted too. I can play with our grandkids, enjoy the time spent each day with my wife in my life.
I just have to get past " I'm old and my times running out".
So here's to day one. It wont be easy. Nothing good ever comes easy. But it will all okay.
I hope to continue to find others here who understand and do my best. Do what I can. And LI VE.

    Happy Belated Birthday David. WarriorSue is right. I practice gratitude. I start with waking in the morning. I taught my children never to compare themselves with others since that is a sure way to feel like a failure. I fell in July and been unable to stand/walk for months, but never get up hope that I could do both again and I am doing it.

    David I so appreciate what you have to say, and thank you for sharing.
    Happy belated birthday! Let's both learn how to be in the moment, to be grateful for what we have as opposed to what we have lost, and to keep looking for support along the way.

    Adding you as a friend!!
