We Are Positively Challenged!

You would suppose, when you are a senior citizen, that you wouldn’t have many new changes and new experiences.  For me this past year and into this new year, it seems every day is a new experience.  I am really looking forward to this year, even though in other people’s eyes, it will be very tenuous.

We have been on a journey this past year to live in the positive.  It is not the norm in our society—we are thought to not be living in reality.  Well, we have been living a positive life and have been able to handle all that has come our way.  And lots of challenging situations have come our way.  Neither my spouse nor I have been in these situations before, but know that because we are being presented with these situations, our thoughts and emotions are being strengthened.  In the Secret’s Daily Teachings, we read: “even challenges are beautiful opportunities in disguise.”

Our opportunities are being presented every day.  Thank you, we are glad for the challenge to live a positive life.


About Marilyn

I am a "retired senior" (I've been a school librarian and library tech for a government research facility) who is now pursuing a dream of a home business sewing bags of all sorts, crafting and being the creative person I have always wanted to be. I grew up in the center of Illinois and dreamed of actually living back in the state of Colorado where I was born and lived till the age of 7. That dream came true when I met my husband of 43 years while working together in Estes Park. I am interested in alternative medicine, continuing the good health I've always had, while returning to the pre-processed food era of: eating well, losing weight, and using products that do not harm the environment, me, my family and friends. I am for labeling GMO’s, using sustainable products, organics and finding solutions to everyday problems, like colds and sore muscles, using natural remedies. I have a positive attitude that has helped through a very hard year and will bring forth a life that will be full and happy. My family is wonderful and I am a happy lady, wife, mother, and grandma.
