Time for some life revision

“It’s never too late, in fiction or in life, to revise.”—Nancy Thayer

Now and again it occurs to me that life is not really working out the way I had imagined it would about 20, or even 10 years ago. Yet- here I am with the wonderful, the OK and the tedious. What I find difficult is accepting my reality gracefully while keeping positive enough to hatch a cunning new life plan. Some days are easier than others. Usually those when I’ve had ample sleep. However, the best days are when I am open to all the little things – the gift of a smile,  my children chatting with each other, a hug from a loved one. These are the days to make plans and to marvel at the fact that I have options. To think of the small steps I need to take to make things happen. To look back and learn then place one foot in front of the other into the future.
