A Life –So Far

I have had a problem:  it’s hard to squish alot of stuff into a resume.  It’s like stuffing a pillow that’s fluffy, yet lumpy in the wrong places. Then trying to lie down and wondering if now, the pillow is too puffy.

Sometimes we amble along in life, nearly robot-like in our daily routine, chores and habits.  We forget what we have learned, what we know, what we saw and how we felt then and now.

Looking backward, it’s humbling to come so far.  At times, it was like grinding up a hill on a bike, and not look back. ‘Cause I knew looking back, would scare, surprise or distract me that I would get off-balance.  Sure I got off the bike when my strength wasn’t there and the weight of myself, bike and pannier load, felt like a boulder.  The harder part, is remounting and trying to cycle the first few strokes.  Just try to avoid doing it on an ascent.

What would your life lessons be so far?

  2. Ha, I think my infographic would have too much time on social media and the internet. Maybe I can write some of that off as research?

  3. This is great, how you can literally look at your life. I see mine in words.
    It all starts with the mind, body, and sleep.

      Well, I did find fun working with the software and choosing from the software library graphics.

      Ah, sleep is something we treasure as the years roll along! Hope you are well, HWF.

    Jean such a good idea for reflecting on life. I feel sometimes i seem so busy in the moment I don’t appreciate all that has happened in the past. A wonderful idea to create an info graphic to make is such a visual review.

      Piktochart offers some free templates to make one’s own infographic. When I get an idea…I have fun. 🙂

      Hope all is well, Sue.

        Thanks Jean. The year started out with both of our Moms in hospital but each are doing better now. The grandkids keep us busy …and exhausted.

          I’m sure and you’ve probably wondered….and I used to have more energy 50 yrs. ago when my kids were younger.

    One thing would be: It’s important to detox our lives (people, habits, clutter, you name it), and then be more intentional and dedicated toward the things/people we choose to invest in – make more time and effort for – because that way its more rewarding 😊

      I didn’t give the detox advice…especially on clutter because I’m not a shining example –yet. 🙂 My life is very simple compared to lives of others. Not having children simplifies a lot of plans and puts any of my own problems in perspective.

        I don’t think anyone will ever be a shining example, we always have room for improvement, which is why I think it’s important to be reflective and keep check – just like we would with physical clutter – best wishes, and stay safe Jean 😊🔆

    You’re infograph is adorable and I like that you changed your theme, using up that real estate!

      Well, it’s been the same theme for past few years. I like it whereas others might want something more sparse-looking. Blogs are like pennies nowadays. Very common..well, not quite like Instagram.

        It might be the same theme but the layout is different. When I used to go to it only a third of the space was the actual blog post, and now it’s full width which is kinder on my aging eyes!
