We all go through seasons in our lifetime. Some good, some bad. But the thing about seasons is that they change. Each season brings the opportunity for starting over.
Since weaning off of all of my medications and switching completely to a natural lifestyle of treatment for my medical conditions, I am improving. My brain is clearing, my thought process is more efficient and my body is getting stronger.
The pain is still there, but I feel like I have a handle on it better than I did before. I have recently started skating again after taking a year off and have made it 4 times now! This past Monday I skated for 4 and 1/2 hours! My body paid for it, but it was worth it.
It is never too late
I’m 42 years old and I am starting over again. It is never too late. Currently, I am faced with some extra stress in my life that is coming from a source that makes it even tougher. But I am hoping by distracting myself with bettering myself that this will pass soon. I have to look to the future and not dwell.
Throughout your life there will be people that want to see you fail. Don’t give them the power by giving up. They can say what they want, I know who I am. I know the truth. I’m not a juvenile that needs to play games.
Ditch the Negative
I hearby ditch everything negative in my life. Every negative thought, every negative feeling, every negative person…they do not have power over me. I am better than that and stronger than that. In the past, I fell down that trap by responding to the negativity with my own negativity in defense. I have never been perfect and never claimed to be. Thing is, I grew up. I won’t allow it to happen now.
So if you are a person that has negative feelings towards me, that is your problem. Not mine. You are here reading because you are looking for a reaction. You will not get it this time.
For my health and well being, I ditch your attempts. I choose happiness.

That is awesome! I celebrate your embrace of happiness. You are right – when others harbor bad feelings towards us, it is about them.
I wish you continued success in your new journey.

I absolutely support you as you embrace happiness, health, and positivity, and ditch negativity and toxic people! As far as age is concerned… let me encourage you. I earned my M.Ed. degree at the age of 50; I am poised to earn my Ed.D. degree at the age of 59. You’re right – while we have breath, it is never too late!
