I learned tonight that some members of my family don’t believe in me very much. They doubt me. I feel sad that this is so, for I have done many things that prove I follow through with things I set out to do. I guess they focus on the few things I did not.
I can recall wanting to learn to knit. I taught myself to knit, thanks to the internet and
YouTube. I did that for a while, then stopped. Now I pick it up only once in a while to relax. Our family joined the gym. I go once in a while, more often in winter than in summer. I’m not a huge fan of going to the gym. That wasn’t a “thing” I had set out to do anyway, so you can’t exactly say I didn’t follow through there. I did try yoga for a while and got excited about that, but I only do that once in a while as well.
I DID have a goal of running the NYC marathon, which they doubted I would do, and I trained for it and completed it too. HA. I started biking last year and am still into biking. So much so that I invested in a beautiful new light bike. I love riding it and plan to continue riding for exercise and for fun. I have already done a few road tours. They are surprised I still bike. Bah humbug to them.
I guess they just see the things I stopped and doubt all my goals and dreams because of those. What a shame. Sad for me to have people in my life who are behind me doubting me all the way. Well, as long as I am happy doing what I am doing, who cares what those doubters think anyway, right? Life is about doing what makes you happy, and that is what I will continue to do.
Until next time…

Phooey! You’ve got nothing to worry about. I love your attitude. .All my life I’ve lived to please others and do what was considered the ‘right thing’ to do. Only last year did I start doing what made me happy…and guess what? I can write! (enough to publish on amazon 🙂 ). It took me 25 years to course-correct…don’t make the same mistake. Just make sure you get an education…then you can fund your passion…once you know what that is. All the best!!

Thank you Vivian! I appreciate your encouragement. I did get my education – I got two masters degrees – one I finished last year while working full time and taking care of the family. And they think I don’t finish what I start! Congrats girl on being published on Amazon – that’s fantastic!!!! Let me know what so I can buy it!! Xo
