This year's word is . . . SOAR ~ To rise or fly into the air. To increase or improve suddenly above the normal or usual level.
On January 12th, I will be 48 years old. To type that number is surreal to me. I don't have a problem with this number. In fact, it's just the opposite. I feel so blessed that I am here to celebrate it. So many people never get to see this number. What has been going on in my mind is this whole aging process. The idea of being in the middle years of my life. Feeling like a kid still yet looking in the mirror and seeing the aging process happening right before my eyes. I think this middle age thing is a part of our journey that teaches us the lesson of acceptance that there are things that we can change and there are things that we just have to accept. I'm in a transitional period of doing both.
In my 20's, 30's and early 40's I never really felt the sense of urgency that middle age is now giving me. I think about things that I've always wanted to do but have never either taken the time to do or have never been afforded the opportunity to.
Last week, I sold my first photograph in my new Etsy shop. Someone liked my photo enough to pay for it. I'm smiling as I type this. Actually, the first time the word "soar" came into my mind was when I was celebrating this.

Happy Tuesday to you all!!!!
