I hate platitudes. You know those annoying statements people say to make you feel better about a situation. I come from a line of women who live long lives, into their eighties and nineties. Based on that kind of lineage, I anticipate a long life too. I’d prefer to be one of those women who age gracefully (whatever the heck that means).
My mother, a proud woman, wore her crown of white hair and the wrinkles on her face with pride. Coloring her hair would have been an insult. “I earned every one of these gray hairs raising six kids, ” she said, more times than I can count. Never at a loss for words, Mother had quite a few trite statements and tiresome clichés in her repertoire of advice. None of which prepared me for the grim reality of aging. I would’ve preferred the truth.

Took a trip up to the beloved “off the wifi grid”,
Mt Holly, VT over the weekend.
Haven’t made the trip since last August, (2016).
When it comes to a new season, due to it’s elevation,
this area runs about two weeks behind the lower valley.
Spring really is coming!
If you look closely, you can see it is
on the way.
New buds, bright green sprouts of
grass and other hints
in sunny areas, even though
there is still
snow along some of
the backwood trails.
For me this means – HOPE!
Nature has a way of
Reminding me of what
Is truly important.
Peace within myself.
Sharing a smile with a friend.
Photography compliments of
Both K AND LGB!
Pssst I shot the porcupine!
Kind Regards and wishing
Each of you
Health, Love, Contentment, Joy
Along with Wealth and Success -K
a WONDERFUL REBLOG FROM THOUGHTSNLIFEBLOG!! ❤
Thoughts are the creations of the mind. What we repeatedly think creates a habit. What we read feeds our mind and creates thoughts. Thoughts are the food for the mind.
So what habits are we creating with our thinking? Is it that we constantly have good thoughts in our mind, are we constantly peaceful, are we constantly upset or are we in a constant mood?
It is so important to have fresh food for you mind every single day. A fresh positive thought every day, a motto or a mantra will help you stay peaceful and happy all day. All you have to do is remind yourself of it. Always, go out of your way to create the habit of positive thinking every day (I share various thoughts on Instagram almost daily). Then you will feel that life is not so hard. Read positive thoughts, listen and watch programs that make you happy, that give a deeper meaning to life.

Originally written 10/11/2016.
Somehow her heart knew, I was someone special,
But her head could not place from whence we met.
On my weekly visits, off to the garden we’d venture
For I knew from my lifelong upbringing,
Her love of flowers, birds and all things nature.
Down the hallways we often skipped and danced,
Singing little ditties, whilst holding hands.
Her soul was that of a free spirited teenager.
And she was the happiest girl of all.
As sundown time each day arrived
She anxiously awaited the doors to open
In the parking lot, they must sit awaiting,
Her parents in their horse drawn sleigh,
To take her home to the old farmstead.
Alas, she was 94 and it was I who knew
They had long since gone away.
But none of that did she believe.
Once that time of day had passed.
She remained the happiest girl of all.
My children knew…

One must love Mother Nature’s sense of humor, particularly if you live in New England.
One would think we would be accustomed to change by now. Who was it that said, “Change is inevitable. It’s a constant, the one thing you can rely on?”

Self doubt from a childhood
Being told I never would
Battles the truthfilled knowledge
That I’ve already proven
That I could.
Knowing the signs, triggers of self
Show years of forging through.
It’s time to quiet the mind
Relax, Get some rest
Once again tomorrow
I’ll be me, the winner
Refreshed and at my best,
-Bryant McGill, Voice of Reason
Kind Regards and winning -K

Do you remember when you were 13 what you aspired to be when you became an adult? Then between the ages of 16 and 18, we had another vision of our future. I’m thinking something along the line of “taking over the world.” Serious stuff like that. (smirk) We knew it all! No one could tell us anything. The possibilities were endless. The world was wide open! Move over because we are here!!! Woo hoo!!
Somewhere between then and our fifties a whole lot of reality took over. We worked jobs we hated because we had families and responsibilities. Single parenthood was hard work but no longer frowned upon. Then, WHAM! in comes the era of the entrepreneur. I am not sure of what percent there is of triumphant individuals. Do you? I surely want to hear the numbers are high. Hard work, countless 16 hour days plus. “Do what you love…
