Where did my life go? On December 31, 2009 I decided, 2010 would be my best year ever. Yes, I’m really going to make things happen this year. I’m going to kick this RA disease in the butt. I’m going to break new ground, go places I’ve never been before (figuratively speaking). I’m going to take risks. I’m going to create a vision, set goals, list action steps and DO IT! Way to go Marianne! You CAN do it!
I’m standing in the room where most of my revelations happen, where the only paper available is on a roll. Suddenly, it hits me like a lightening bolt. I’ll be eligible to collect CPP (Canada Pension) in five years. “What?” I gasp. Mouth drops. Five years, that’s nothing. Do you know how quickly five years passes? My mind drifted back over the last five years. What have I accomplished? What do I have to show that proves I’m moving forward? Nothing, except maybe, more wrinkles! Wow, it seems like, in an instant five years passes. In the snap of a finger, it’s gone! As if that was not enough, my mind searched through the five years prior only to come up with, the same old nothing.
Did I just wake up? Have I been sleeping? Yes, that’s it, Marianne. You’ve been stuck in your own personal nightmare, consumed by fear, worry, stress, self-doubt and self-criticism, not to mention disease. Where is the fun in that? Where is the creativity, enthusiasm, happiness and above all, where is the love in ALL that negative stuff?
I have a grandeur vision for myself. Can I be a senior citizen and still become rich and famous?
