Come along on my journey toward health and fulfillment.

Join me on my journey to becoming my best me!  My hope is that what I share here will enhance your life also.

My key word for 2014 was “regroup”.  Following one of the most difficult years of my life, I decided that it was time to take care of Karen and move forward positively.  This includes:

*focusing on my health,

* reducing stress and getting enough rest

* spending quiet time with God to grow stronger spiritually,

*developing new avenues of income,

*spending quality time quiet family and friends.

Does this sound like something you would like to focus on, too?

Each week I will be posting on what I am learning and positive changes I am making to enhance my life.  I will share inspiration, wellness information, favorite recipes, lessons I have learned, food for spiritual thought, things I have discovered that enrich my life and help me reach my goals.

I am now entering the last third of my life and believe it can be my best season. I recognize that I need variety in my life. I want to remain active and vibrant.  I appreciate constantly learning and growing.  My relationships are very important to me and I have come to realize that I need to be social to thrive.  I want to make an impact and have positive influence on the people I love or encounter. More than ever, I value incorporating habits that enable me to be as healthy as possible.   I want every aspect of my life to be pleasing to God and bring glory to Him.

These goals aren’t just resolutions I made at the start of the year.  It is more a determination to move in a forward direction and believe that despite many losses, changes and disappointments, there are still good things ahead.  There is great truth to the saying “Attitude is everything”.  I have experienced firsthand that what you think about and the perspective you see things through will determine how you feel and respond. Now in 2015, I choose to dream and believe that the best is yet to come.

What about you?  What are you hoping and striving for?  I look forward to you sharing your thoughts here, too.  Welcome, friend.

  1. Because we are at the same stage of life and share so many interests, I’m excited to have the opportunity to glean from your wisdom and insight. Thanks for all your hard work and willingness to share!

  2. I am 51, a born again Christian, and I have had so many huge losses in the past two years. The latest one was on January 28, 2016. I was getting ready to marry my best friend, a man of such honor, courage, unconditional love, and too much more to put here, and he was killed in a fatal car accident just 15 days ago. The pain is unbearable, but I don’t even have time to grieve. I now have to find a place to live ASAP since my son is moving and the plans for my future died with the man I love. I am on disability and by government standards am at poverty level or below. If I don’t find something soon I will be homeless. I don’t have family except my son, I don’t have friends. Family and friends were another huge loss in my life. I can’t afford rent and can’t afford dentures, I don’t know how I’m going to make it…plus I will be completely alone. I have a very strong relationship with my Lord, but I am old enough to know that even Christians can be homeless, toothless, alone and in great pain. No-one but my son and my counselor know about my great loss. I’ve been abused in almost every way my entire life, and I just kept having huge losses, one after the other in the past two years. I am glad that you are hopeful at this stage of your life and was glad to see your post. I don’t usually write or take part of this sort of thing because people are so mean, holier than thou, and completely judgemental…and Christians are the worst. I happen to live in a state and an area that even my counselor has said is “not normal”. Frankly, living here I get verbally and emotionly abused just like I did growing up. I know the long term plan God has for my life, but right now I am overwhelmed with what I have to get done, and there is NO WAY I can do it by myself . I know God is here and he might help me, but again, I have learned that He doesn’t always operate in the way you think He will. I will soon (Lord willing) be getting a book written about my mother’s life and then an autobiography. God’s plan for me is to be traveling and giving my testimony to help others. On the day I found out that my Love had died, my amazing son said to me ” Well, Mom..this may sound harsh, but maybe God allowed this to happen so that in your ministry here’s one more type of loss and pain that you can understand and help people with that you didn’t have before”. Such wisdom. It wasn’t harsh at all, it was comforting. I’ve said enough for now. This has really shaken me so I might not sound like I have much faith. But that’s alright, I know God knows my heart. I look forward to going on up this journey with you..thank you for letting God use you in this way.
