A reminder to myself

Pic from Facebook

Many people have said that I am a lucky person.  If Stephen is around, he'll always say, "She's not lucky, she's blessed".  Besides, I don't believe 100 % in 'luck'.  I think we choose our path and make the best of life. 

Yes, I've been through some tough moments but there were always good people along the way to help me get back on track.  For me, it's not about the road traveled, it's where we are now that matters.

I am in the 'autumn' of my life and I finally get it.

Stephen is right, "I am blessed".  I am happy and healthy.  I have family and friends who love me.  It's not luck at all.  It's a blessing.


  1. I disagree with both you and Stephen!! There. I've said it. Now pick your jaw off the floor and hear me out ;)

    I think you are where you are because you used your brain and thought about things - and made good decisions. It's as simple as that! You did the difficult, and now you enjoy the good :)

    You know what I think about luck, and what I think about blessings ;)

    Love you!

  2. You are the best! You know that, don't you?

    While I always wonder what you're going to say, you never fail to surprise me with something original and authentic. This time, it was totally unexpected but, again, you nailed it and I love this comment.
