2018 was started the right way, with movement in my of my life. I had begun walking just before the New Year had arrived. I kept it up in order to reach a goal which was to participate in a 5K! I not only participated, but I shared my story about getting free of pharmaceuticals as I walked the streets of Grants Pass just 4 days before my 56th birthday! I created a shirt about my journey and wore it proudly!
I also was on the move with my bags packed frequently this year. Between moving back to S. Oregon, various house sitting gigs, a trip to Little Cultus lake and then to Salem a couple times, my bags got used a LOT.
I enjoyed a variety of local events. Music, merry-making, activism and fun. I am beginning to enjoy being social now and then. This is just one of the indicators that slowly yet progressively, I am healing!
Always there are animals around. I enjoy them all. I seem drawn to them and they seem to enjoy me as well. I make friends wherever I go. Often they are 4 legged or feathered.
I was drawn to water many times. It soothed me.
Especially when I needed to escape the smoke again. Summers are getting hard in Southern Oregon due to so many fires.
Cannabis was always part of the day. I shared my story in order to help others know that it does work and you don’t have to be high! Well…maybe high on life!!!
I had so many blessings such as being reunited with my brother, getting a couple kitties, becoming a surrogate Nana…..and of course….my lovely tiny home on wheels.
I enjoyed some art projects this year. Thanks for the art supplies ladies. You know who you are.
I cooked for others and myself
Not everything was always dandy. There were a few things that were hard. But I never let them get me down for too long.
But at the end of the day there were so many beautiful sunsets.
And of course….the one constant in my life….the most amazing and wonderful #ShastaTheWonderdog. And Lulu…who is her sidekick!
It has been a year of blessings and I am very grateful! I am ready for whatever 2019 has to bring!
