Can you believe this? It has been less than a week and here I am posting again.... the "spirit" has moved me. At my age I am grateful for anything that will move me. How about another decade?
Today is my 79 birthday. No way I would live this long. But here I am and I intend to make the most of it. My favorite quote is "It's not how old you are....it's HOW you are old."
Most days I can't wait to get up in the morning...would you believe 4am? I just spent two hours on the internet catching up on the news, checking out my favorite bloggers, and a bunch of other things. Now I will start the morning exercise routine, have breakfast, and get ready for a few hours of fresh air on the golf course.
Golf is still my passion. I will play 18 holes with two friends in an hour or so. Back to the house for lunch, and run some errands before my nap...never ever miss the nap. " The untroubled sleep of the pure of heart"...read that somewhere.
Then some reading, dinner and an AA meeting, where perhaps I can share my experience, strength, and hope with another alcoholic. Whatever the day brings, I always seem to have something or someone to be enthusiastic about....that is the secret to happiness for me.
Of course I've had my share of loss and dissapointment over the years, including some serious health issues. But as we say in AA , I do not regret the past nor do I wish to shut the door on it.
All I have is today...and today I choose to be happy.
I wish the same for all you.
