I Wonder

From the ordinary to the extraordinary; the mundane tasks to the blows which seem to come from out of the blue; simply and honestly, I love life. I am grateful for the understanding that loving life doesn’t necessarily mean liking everything that makes up life.
While I love life, recently, I have been deeply wondering about two things. One, How can I do life better? And, two, who am I? Now, you’d think these questions would be something I would have given more thought too before this, my 49th year, and I probably have, but not like I have recently.
The latter of the two questions has really come up since I entered into the social networks and have been unable to finish a profile on this blog spot or on facebook. Oh, there are the simple things, you know, the givens, but to describe who I am, has become most curious to me.
As a start, I believe I need to have bravery and courage. I made a simple reminder of bravery for myself, after which, I realized, she needs a companion; courage, as well. (I must create her soon)
How about you? Do you have any thoughts, ideas, and insights to doing life better? Do you know who you really are? And, if so, how did you come to the knowing? I’d love to read what you have to say, so please, leave a comment here; send me an email at or a post on facebook.

"You can't be brave if you've only had wonderful things happen to you." Mary Tyler Moore

"Bravery is believing in yourself and that thing nobody can teach you." El Cordobes

"Courage is not the absence of fear but the judgement that something else is more important than fear. The brave may not live forever but the cautious do not live at all. For now you are traveling between the road of who you think you are and who you can be." Meg Cabot

Don't you love this last one!


  1. I have a webpage that I have not been able to complete. I have been trying to determine which 3 words best describe who I am. And the three that I have come up with are the most important parts about me - my roles in life are what has made me the most happy.
    One day I hope to add mother. And have some pictures and stoies to include. But for now - just 3 words.

  2. Bryana, I can't wait for you to finish it. I guess I learning 'finish' isn't really what I mean as we are not, I am not, finished yet. I guess we all are a work in progress, creators...I sure love you. Thanks for sharing.
