All Talk and No Action?

How old are you?  How long do you expect to live?  Let’s say that you’re 65, and you don’t expect to live past 80.  This means you have 15 years left to live.

15 precious years.

And so, what are you planning to do with this remaining time on planet Earth?

Is there something you’ve always wanted to accomplish?  If so, now is the time to do it. How are you going to make it happen?  What is your plan of action?  What are you waiting for?

It will be interesting to see what 2014 brings us.  Will we make our dreams a reality, or will we continue running around the proverbial hamster wheel?  The choice is ours to make…

Yours in aging with class,

    The timing of your post coincides with what I said just yesterday. I plan to sing and dance more because it is what gives me great joy. You know, Kahkee loved “Singing in the Rain.” What are you going to do in 2014 that you haven’t done lately? Thanks, Kathy

  2. I’m going to continue to improve my writing chops (hence, this blog), eat healthier (i.e., less sugar), help Dad to have the best quality of life, be a part of my grand-children’s lives, continue with my regular yoga practice, and improve my cooking skills. I’d like to get back to knitting, and I’d like to get rid of my nasty habit of procrastination and wasting time on the internet…although a lot of that time gives me ideas for my blog… Three cheers for singing and dancing! Will you join a singing group or a dancing class? How are you going to make it happen? Lots of love, Janie

    For me it’s hard to tell. I have lost so much of myself into being a mother, wife and grandmother that I’m not sure I can find that young artist and dancer I used to be or have the energy to discover it…sad but true….

    • Awwww…I’m mostly kicking my own butt with today’s post. I read goals or ambitions that others have set for themselves for the future and what they’ve set for the past, and I can hardly believe the energy that young folk have. Did you dance ballet? What was your medium as a young artist? Yes, “losing ourselves” can be such a part of being a woman, sad to say… Love, Jane
