This is the first holiday season Heroes ‘N Pirates is experiencing with no family – my extensive relatives live in Europe. It’s been a bit of a challenge as despite my customary solo activities (not out of choice), I’m a deeply social person. But this blog has been a welcome source of catharsis in the past. Life for anyone entails ups and downs and given a little time, things shift. By mid-life anyone paying attentions has seen that over and over, not only in their own life but in those around them.
So I’m staying positive and appreciating small things in the moment. I’m keeping focused on training objectives, enjoying touch with my dog, and taking satisfaction in the subtleties of nature around me. That and, of course, I dream of romance and great connection… and I continue to drive for 135X53 on the bench! 🙂
