365 days is a long time. 365 days is a blink. Today marks a huge date in my life thus far. Surgery and recovery from something that was without a doubt the scariest experience I have dealt with in my life. Every morning when I take my dogs out I give thanks for the sunrise. This was the sunrise this morning. Self awareness of mortality is what separates us from most things. I am grateful for the daily opportunity that I am blessed to have. I will alway be nervous every six months, but that is a better than fair trade. What I have continued to believe is that I need to strive to be a better person daily and not to waste the gift of life. I am human and still have shortcomings. I am excited to work on those daily to become the person I wish to be. Today is my New Years: so here are my resolutions- I want to truly listen with an open mind to people when they talk to me, even if I disagree with every word they say at the start of the conversation. I want to volunteer in my community. I want to start a community project (dog park??). I may want to start a business on a small scale and see if it has legs to grow. Who knows maybe write a book or run for a office that no one else wants because it doesn’t pay😃 I am so grateful for my life and even before all my medical issues I have had opportunities and experiences that others are not lucky enough to enjoy. Blessed!
