At 53 years old I am starting to realize how life changes both physically and emotionally. I strive for a life of simplicity. I am winning the battle with type II diabetes, created a plan to have all debt paid off in 4 years including the house, taking advantage of every opportunity to live life to it's fullest through adventures in nature, hiking, biking, loving and learning.
The idea of keep on keeping on is real. Even when you get to the point where you think that you have reached your potential, just keep moving forward and sooner or later you will reach the next stage of your mission. I suppose this applies to just about anything in life. I am sure that one day I will look back at all that I have accomplished and think that it wasn't too hard, hell, I look back now at where I am and where I was and think that it wasn't difficult. But the truth is that each step of the way feels difficult as we move forward into the unknown of our mission. The unknown knowledge, the unknown endurance and the unknown strength that we possess inside ourselves waiting to come out. I have beat the smoking habit, I will beat diabetes and I will arrive one day completely debt free. For this is my mission.
