Almost There

Tomorrow is the big day. I will be 50 and I am looking forward to it. It's exciting because I began this blog with trepidation. I have learned a lot...about blogs...about human nature...and about myself. I have learned that most of my friends do not know how to follow a blog or do not want to follow a blog. That's okay. I have learned that I am only speaking to a few people out there in the world. That's okay, too. I have learned so much about myself and what I am capable of. I have been steering myself onto a new path for several months now and I am very happy about where I am headed. I have been writing more. I have a job writing. I am applying for a writing/book proposal job. I have been knitting an awful lot and have learned things about knitting that I didn't know I needed to learn. I am happy in a way that I didn't believe could be possible and I am happy to be becoming 50 tomorrow.

I have also learned that I have fabulous, fantastic, fun, friends and I am forever grateful for them in my life. Scientists have proven that satisfaction in life depends on a strong support system of friends, family, community, and place. You have to work at it, but it's so worth it to be satisfied and happy in this life. Hurray!!
