Moving Forward – Monday Update

Spring Bluebird

This blog is about moving forward in my life and today I feel like I am bogged down and struggling in quick sand.  Every step forward, there is a step back.  I do not have the understanding of the ins and outs of setting up my blog and one moment I will feel like it is working.  I complete a step and feel like “YES” I did it and then discover there is another step to make it actually work.  An example of that is making my blog connect to Facebook; I kept getting an error message which told me I did not have a page on Facebook which, of course, I thought I had, but did not. So today I went to Facebook and I think I now have a page although I am still not certain it is 100 % done.  We will see. Frustrating.

I have changed the “theme” of the blog twice and I am still not sure I like the way it looks so I may be changing it again.  I really think I just need a good nap !  I did look at some other themes today but I just do not know.  Part of the problem is I am not certain where I want this blog to go.  It is about me changing things up in my life, to not be stagnant, which I feel is easy to do when we become older.  I want flexibility in my blog theme to be able to show other snippets of my life which will not take away from the main focus of my blog but will enhance it.  Just as I want flexibility in my own life.

I do want flexibility in my life and I think the vast majority of people do.  So why do we become stagnant ?  Why do we slow down.  Maybe we are growing older and are retired, lost contact with friends, have a health issue or a spouse has a health issue.  Maybe we cannot afford to do some of the things we would really like to do.  We start to accept slowing down, we make up excuses for why we cannot do things.  We do not look for different things to do that we can afford, or for different ways of doing something that will not cost as much.  It is easy to make an excuse and stop doing something, or believing we cannot do them.  It is for some reason harder to believe we can make changes.  Why ?  Any thoughts that you might want to share ?

Just a couple days ago I went to a hair stylist and said, “let’s change it up”, I need to make a major change and I did.  I went from longer shoulder length, straight, hair to a short spiky style.  It was liberating and I love it.  

Now I need to do more to liberate myself, make improvements, move forward.  How about you ?!


Moving Forward.....that is what this blog is about and adjusting my Time Frame. We all have a time frame although we may acknowledge, or look at our life that way, but life is our own personal time frame. I am in my early 70's and I plan on living for many more years and accomplish many things. This blog is the beginning of that process. It is my way of pushing myself along that path. So where do I go from here? Follow along and maybe what I do will help you to Move Forward as well. Also, join me on my journey at
