  1. Sparky Jen – this resonated mightily with me today. Thank you for sharing your journey (challenges inclusive) that inspires. Full stop – no, GO – for us to keep on going. Blessings! 🙂

    1. I’m chuffed to know that this post ‘resonated mightily’ with you. Thankfully, my journey, challenges included, have enabled me to cross the mountain, not carry it. Plus, looking back on occasion gives me a 🤭 giggle!

  2. I found your story very interesting and thank you for sharing about yourself. I remember “bargaining ” with God over a boyfriend-the answer was no, which was a good thing. Another time, another boyfriend, I didn’t listen to my better instincts which caused lots of pain but got the gain of a lesson learned. Jobs… had some real adventures that I would have missed if I hadn’t taken the risk. Letting go of some of my plans has opened doors for me, too. Yes, it is a good life.

  3. Bravo !!!👏👏👏

    Totally resonates with me. Blessing in disguise, saving us from bad choices.

    I love how you humoursly spun your life experiences. Well written and fun piece. That is totally true for all of us. Some doors for me didn’t shut, but they gave me valuable but painful less, that I feel hurt by, but i just wouldn’t be who I am today without those painful blessings in disguise

    1. Oh I’ve had a few doors that didn’t shut right away too. As you’ve so aptly mentioned however 😊, ‘I just wouldn’t be who I am today without those painful blessings✨ in disguise!”

  4. Excellent wisdom! Now, I’m remembering how thankful I am for the doors that shut. Even the end of my 20 year marriage which devastated me for a while, turned out to be the best thing that could happen, making room for something way better. Back to you, Dementia Certified Reminiscence Coach. Memory Finder! sounds really interesting!

    1. It is JoAnna. I get to love 💕 my elders where they are, even those living with dementia. I’m always chuffed to learn all about where they’ve been ‘cause they can still entertain me with what they do remember. Some pretty super fantastic stories, AND life lessons!☺️

  5. Yes, yes, yes, yes-yes!
    Found you via Jane…am following.
    You mentioned something to the effect that it may seem like you’re drifting…but not. That’s the ever present societal pressure to ‘prove’ you’re moving forward with your life in ways that are tangible and understandable to everyday people…
    In times past and in trying times, I have succumbed to that pressure, but find it binds me & those doorways…whether closed or open.
    Later, lady.

  6. Great Post! Thank you for sharing some of your life’s experiences in this way. Yes, I have had some opportunities in life to say “Thank you, God, for ignoring that naive prayer of mine!” Time passes – sometimes years, but often just a few days or weeks – before realizing what a close brush with -pick one – (1) a way of life more challenging than you could have imagined; (2) irreversible harm; (3) danger; (4) death….you may have had.
