Daily Prompt: Obstacle Course

28 Jan

What I wanted to accomplish last week was to get a flu shot.  I waited until Sunday but it was still accomplished.  I also got a shingles shot.  I felt good about this accomplishment and more secure because it’s for my health.

The things that hold me back from doing some things are fear, lack of energy and not trying harder.  These things I’ll work to overcome.


The Seasons Of My Life

27 Jan

The seasons of my life are decades in one. All the decades come together to make one. I am never old because the youth of my seasons are always there.

I remember how I used makeup when I was a teenager, how I arranged it on my dressing table and I find myself doing that now. I was about to lose the young girl but decided to reinvent myself and do some of the things she did now.

I remember the cute teenage girl who embraced the beauty fo that decade, the styles, the makeup and the music. She’s still a part of me. The music that she listened to is still played now. She smiles and winks as I go through this season with her.

There is also the disco era, the woman who had the freedom of being an adult, free to spread her wings, to do things she once couldn’t do and the freedom to move freely as the music played. I find myself dancing to it now. She is still there.

The seasons of my life come together in one. They will always be a part of me because they are not forgotten and live within me.

Daily Prompt: Truth Or Dare

4 Jan

It is possible to be to honest.  If being honest is hurting somebody’s feelings.  I think one should remember some words are better not said. My ex-husband always said that he told the truth.  This is

the excuse that he used for saying rude and hurtful things.  I think he believed that he was right.  It wasn’t until after we were divorced that I realized that he should have known that some things are better not said.
