On April 18th I turned 54 years old.
I have spent the last 6 months thinking about this birthday and the theme for the year. I had two themes that kept coming up in my head over and over.
- "Let it Be" which several people just laugh at because they know I am pretty much incapable of letting things go. However, several times lately I have awakened with this Beatles song running through by head. That being said, there are a few things in my life that I really need to learn to let go or one of the most important relationships in my life may be ruined forever. I have shed a lot of tears over not being able to let some things go in the past year.
- "Be the Change" is all about some of the changes I am making in my life. Right now they are not huge changes, but I hope they are permanent changes. "Letting it Be" could be a part of the "changes." This one climbed to the top of the list because when I was thinking about this a couple of weeks ago, I opened a drawer and found a blank diary with a soft green cover with the words "Be the Change" on the front. "Be the Change" says it pretty clear. I have to "Be" the "Change." The kind of changes I need to make cannot be made by anyone else.
