50 years

I have come a long way in my 50 years.  I have been at the top, the bottom and the middle.  I have climbed and clawed and sacrificed and given up some dreams for other paths.  I have no regrets.  Sometimes I think I would do something over again, but if I was actually offered that chance I would decline.  I have walked the path less traveled and am proud of what I have done, where I have been and what I have accomplished.  I have got it all and lost it again a couple of times now.  I have trials and tribulations, have let go of passions and grasped at things I thought would bring me passion only to discover the grass was not greener on that path.  I own ALL my mistakes as they are lessons learned not things I need to be ashamed of.  I have been shamed by people and have shamed others.  I will never again allow someone to own my power, nor will I be foolish enough to freely give it away.  I am my own responsibility.  I will ask for help when needed, I will not turn down assistance because I think I am proud or can do it myself, and will in turn be honored to help those that ask of me.  Without the lessons I have learned and the paths I have traveled down, my amazing KIDS would not be who they are today.  We all struggle, we all make questionable decisions, we all have our own dreams.  Rich, poor, middle class, young, old or middle age... We are all just people intertwined on a path to discovery.  Thank you to everyone that has contributed to my 50 years thus far.  No regrets, many blessings, some unanswered questions... but that is for the next 50 years!  I wish everyone I have ever encountered Luck, Love, and "May the road rise up to meet you.  May the wind always be at your back.  May the sun shine warm upon your face,  and rains fall soft upon your fields.  And until we meet again,  May God hold you in the palm of His hand." An Old Irish Blessing...
