I have learned so much over the years. I have learned from my failures and have been eternally grateful for those challenging times. There were and sometimes are times when I feel I am climbing up a down escalator, not reaching the top, and I slide back down. That is when
I find the strength to put my big girl pants on and start climbing that escalator again. I am grateful for the strength and tenacity to keep going despite my challenges. It took me years to love myself, to realize I was unique, to stay motivated, and be joyful and at peace. Each day I wake up, I am grateful to be on this side of the sod. I live in the holistic world and love my life.
I’ve written two books and am in the process of writing my third book. In my spare time, I love to knit and improve on this skill as it helps me reduce stress while keeping me calm. I have begun breathwork and deep meditation to find peace, joy, and calmness in my life. In the past three years,
I have made my home my “blue island,” surrounded by happy thoughts full of positivity. Gratitude comes from within. I find gratefullness in my inner soul. I am intuitive and listen to my inner soul frequently as she guides me throughout the day. I have been having some health challenges and am now realizing these health challenges need to be addressed. I am tweaking my lifestyle plan and incorporating more exercise.
I know it won’t be easy. I will succeed. This is a huge challenge for me. I want to run circles around my grandchildren, not the other way around! Life is what we make it. I will forge ahead.
Way to go, Marilyn! All of the tools have helped many of us navigate through health challenges. Embrace the process and run those circles around your grandkids!
Miss Marilyn happy thoughts make for a happy life, see you at the top.
Hi Marilyn. Wow! Great blog. The third book is in the making, or maybe the fourth by the time this is said and done. Thanks for sharing you with all of us. Keep up the great work.
Hi Marilyn, It’s wonderful that you have found gratitude to be an asset in your life. So glad to see you here in the MKE keeping an open mind to the changes that you need to make for yourself. Love this “my home is my “blue island,” surrounded by happy thoughts.”
