So I’ve been playing with my little blog for 5 years now. The last few years have been fairly dark ones – and I want to move on from the darkness and chaos. It’s still there, I deal with it on a daily basis. Mama bear will always deal with the chaos.
And where do I want to go with this little blog from here? Well, I’m thinking more on:
The joys and stresses of aging from my prospective, staying young at heart while becoming old of bone, friendships, relationships, effective make up for aging skin (cos I’m always searching), fun hairstyles in spite of being older, and a little bit of this and that with respect to family (because that’s number one in my book said this mama bear) …. yep, that’s it!
That being said, lately I’ve been working on being contented with me and letting that “me” out.
The “medically supervised fast” is on hold because I started having major issues with digestive issues from no fat, high protein and iron supplements if you get my drift. I’m in process with finding something else low calorie/high protein to replace it without the side effects.
A few weeks ago I took a second step in changing the color of my hair from mousy brown to a darker chocolate brown – and eventually silver highlights. Brittney Johnson at Salon Bravissimo in Fair Oaks, I still love you a year later!
Then last weekend I got my very first (and I’m sure only) tattoo. I saw it a few months ago and knew I had to have it. Thank you Nick at Fat Cat Tattoo in Carmichael, CA for the awesome artwork and being gentle with the ol’ lady!!!
And last but not least, I got a new ‘puter – lending my old smaller one to my son so he has his own laptop to use.
I also have to share a little gratitude here for the new circle of women friends I’ve made over the last year through my work networking systems. I see some of them becoming life-long alliances. Part of my availability to foster these friendships is my single state – I have time to actually spend with friends occasionally – and they are the kind of friendships in which we actually do “wellness checks” with each other when one is struggling. Women and friends ….. critical!
So Namaste, my friends – I honor you and your willingness to grow and change!
