The past four days I’ve been experiencing the beginning of a new era. I’ve reached my 59th year. I’ve celebrated 58 birthdays since this picture of Little Mary was taken. Notice the bracelet and necklace. I haven’t changed a bit. I still have the jewelry and the bright blue eyes; although my hair color varies slightly I am wearing it almost that short these days. I like to think that I still look at life with that same wide-eyed wonder.
I choose to believe that I possess a combination of Diva and Destiny infused with a great deal of Creativity with which to accomplish my goals whether it’s meeting a deadline, practicing a yoga pose or baking cookies. Yes, I have to admit that there have been times where this wild ride called Life has been so turbulant I’ve encountered some challenging circumstances. But there have been some equally amazing events as a result. I’ve learned how much I can do to further my own healing. I’ve learned how resilient I am. Every incident became an opportunity to grow and contributed to the person I am today. I can’t wait to see what happens next!
