Mid January and I' m feeling hopeful that this year will be an improvement over last. I decided that instead of lettin life control me totally I'm going to be more proactive. The community college here has a program for seniors, it's shocking how young you can be and still fall in to this category. After looking over the classes offered at a very reasonable rate, I chose yoga, swimming/exercise and oil painting. I am a good swimmer and I need exercise badly, unfortunately the last time I went to a gym I hurt my knee and had to let that membership go to waste. Yoga is something I have practiced off and on my entire adult life, not nearly as much as I should have in the past 20 years so I think a few yoga classes will do me some good :) I'm actively looking for a book club to join. All of these are designed to help me meet people in my new hometown. I'm horrified when I think that I have been here a year and haven't really met anyone I can call up and say how about a coffee at Starbucks? It is so unlike me to be this much of a hermit.
Here is what else I think. I think that if I follow through on all of this I will be a more attractive person to Hubby. Ok I don't know how many of you have read my old blog but I am a good deal older than Hubby. It never bothered me until this year. It's like someone waved a diabolical wand over me and said AGE you f*****! You have no right to look younger than you are, wipe that cat that swallowed the canary grin off your face and act as well as look your age!
If I could find one I would take a Laughter Yoga class! There is such a thing and I have researched it and written about it. I believe it works. Laugh yourself to well being and happiness is not as silly a concept as it sounds.
Oh, on top of all this I am not going to let another year pass without BEACH TIME. I thrive at the beach. Folks used to go to the beach for health purposes back in the dark ages haha, and it works! When I go to the beach my allergies disappear along with the dark circles under my eyes and the wrinkles on my forehead. The salt air heals and nourishes my skin. And the vitamin D from the sun does wonderful things. My head clears and I become peaceful. There is no beach per say near my home now so this effort will involve trips!!!! yay! I'm already putting away the pennies :)
