2010 is almost over.
I am at peace with so much growth and change. I am now 50 years old. Not as scary as it seemed. I heard that while 40 is the old age of youth, 50 is the youth of old age. I tend to agree. I am grateful for my life, health, family and friends.
I ran my first marathon. While the day was amazing what was better was the process. The training and learning. Now as my second attempt at the same marathon approaches I am still learning and growing. This is a process I will never tire from!
I learned how to meditate this year and found my purpose for life is to be love. What an amazing thing to understand about my life I was created to be love. God is love. I stopped looking outward for God and looked inward in quiet contemplation and found God within which I attempt daily to share with others. I love the book The Four Agreements! I try to live by them. I focus on how much good I have done each day so I am not too hard on myself and realize that we all make about 100 mistakes everyday. I just forgive and press on.
I am learning to live in the present moment, and trying to simplify and support causes that can help others. Last year I raised money for Make A Wish. This year I am asking friends to consider donating money to fund research on finding a cure for Leukemia and Lymphoma. (Not formally raising money, just raising awareness).
What exciting challenges lay ahead in 2011? What limiting beliefs will be overcome?
