And, 60 is but a memory!
It is not an easy concept. I struggled to be what I thought I should be until I was in my early 30's. Struggling with a situation, not of my making or ability to control, I sought help from Dr. John McGarry, a friend as well as my personal physician. He convinced me of who and what I was.
I had made remarkable progress professionaly in Industrial Management, my chosen field. I was financially secure for such a young person starting with absolutely nothing. I had served my country in a time of war. I was active in church, community and family affairs. I was a leader of leaders. I was father to three great kids who looked to me for love and support. He made me to know that I must accept that which I could not change and get on with life. I've grown ever since. I am still growing!
I like poetry. One poem says "Like the ways of the seas is the way of life as I journey on my way. It is the purpose of the soul that determines the goal, and not the trouble and strife". Another ends with "Be still sad heart and stop repining, behind the clouds the sun's still shining. Thy fate is the common fate of all, into each life some rain must fall. Some days must be cold and dark and rainy".
You are not a problem, you are a solver of problems. In my family I have taught my children never to even use the word problem. We say we have an opportunity. What a different concept.
YOU GET TO DECIDE! How cool is that? Choose well and continue to strive. You will get there. I really do know!
HOW ARE YOU COPING? I'D LIKE TO KNOW!
