"Embracing life at forty-something,I survived my thirties with road blocks and obstacles to success. While embracing life at forty something__ just didnt happen for me overnight, I mean really who embraces growing older. Anyhow,embracing life @ forty something isnt as bad as it might sound;however,I knew it had to be done and conquered with out centripetal force i.e the (peace of resistance). As an affirmation, " I bravely,embrace, plus I accept turning forty(growing older) and all of its imperfections (me)"
Furthermore,I know that life is a small word with big implications. Life did not begin for me at forty,actually,it recycled itself and give birth to a forty year old educator,motivator,writer, and entreprenuer. At the same time,I know that life is like the ebb and flow of beach waves on some of America's most precious coastal shore lines* after a while it recedes,corrodes,and errodes from attrition without daily replenshing of mineral,nutrients including calcium build up it becomes brittle not malleable causing dissension in parallel universes in other words bypassing or crossing paths that might not have otherwise been brought face to face. Moveover,I know that life is filled with plans,events,and precious moments.Likewise , I know that all that life has to offer both the good and bad has a season and reason that isn't always readily apparent. But,most importantly,I know that showing up for life is 1/2 the battle.Egregiously, the one thing I want to know about life is how did such a small word get such a big job and all that responsibility.
And at thirty something I learned life does not have to begin at forty it can start right now;for instance,if you’re a graduate student,unemployed,a newly wed, a divorcee,or an entrepreneur you can start your life exactly in that place . Everyone must start somewhere, or even start over somewhere; remarkably, the best thing about starting over is you do not have to start over alone"...and this is one of the primary reason I love Owning Pink it's allows you to meet and share some of life's most valuable lessons as well as experiences. I often quote an anynomous quote that states " I'd rather keep the lesson and throw away the experience". I joined Owning Pink to share some of my personal life experiences.
Amazingly, I performed a remarkable feat___ and now the inevitable has arrived, the big 4-0. Unequivocally,my perception of life has been shaped as well as molded mainly from the people in my inner circle plus those who has been most frequently present in my life that primarily includes my parents,teachers,college buddies and co-workers. As a result of sharing some of my lifes experience,my goal is to ease the pain of others plus deter further
abuse against women, stop self destruction & build self confidence in women of all colors.
It is easier to have perfect thoughts, to be the perfect person when you feel that you’ve arrived to the perfect place, the test of life is to be that perfect person even when you’re not in the perfect place. And the same is with our thoughts, it is easier to have perfect thoughts when you feel that you’re in the perfect place. If you took a moment to critique your thoughts while on the road to the perfect place what kind of rating would you give the thoughts that you’ve had over the…Continue

In life, I have very few regrets. And to be truthful,I have a strong penchant for the word regret. Instead,I prefer outcomes,situations or lessons and experiences that I am not pleased with the end result. Honestly ,I believe regret is such a strong word__, it gives the bearer of the word a bad reptutation for having a negative attitude. Also, it implies a pessimist view or outlook on life. At forty something, I fall short on regrets in choices of friends,bestfriends,boy…Continue
