I started to pray. I believe in God. I know for myself that there is power in positive thinking. I stay away from negative people. I choose to let the past go. I am still going to live my life. I am going to enjoy the time I have left here on earth. No one is promised tomorrow myself included. I recently turned forty and it feels good to be older. I had a thought “wow I am forty now.” I feel like I can kind of say “I am doing pretty well”. I feel better now that I am older because of WordPress.
