Are You Making A Life For Yourself

When I became a widow at the age of 50 I knew that I had to make a life of my own.  No one was going to do it for me.  If I was to become a person unto myself I had to lift myself out of my grief.

It’s never too late to take up something new and so I got my motorcycle license – just because I wanted to proof to myself that I could do it.

I read a lot and I often have two books going at the same time.  I also keep a gratitude journal that I write in every night to record what I have to be thankful that happened that day.

I love getting together with friends and my Chick’s Night Out group is a special place to chill out.  I think it’s important to remain open to new experiences and spontaneous events.  I love to travel and explore new places, like when I went swimming in the island caves when I took a cruise.

Overall, I’ve found that the more I do, the more I want to do.  My activities keep me going so that I don’t have time to brood about my loss.

What are you doing to make a life of your own?
