Late last Friday in my mailbox was a USPS notification that I had certified mail from the IRS that could be picked the following day.  While that’s not the news I wanted to hear late Friday as I was going out to enjoy dinner, I tried hard to maintain composure. When I got home, I jumped online and researched everything I could about what a certified letter could possibly mean, checked the tracking ID and called my accountant. I gave myself about an hour of this nonsense until I decided enough was enough.  I know nothing and no sense worrying about it anymore. Thank goodness, I was able to let it go, enjoy the rest of my night and early waking hours with very little worry. I think to a few years back and how I would have allowed panic to set in and ruin a good night’s sleep.

Turns out, when I finally got the letter, it was duplicate confirmation of something that I had taken care of a few months ago.  So maybe the takeaway from this is just take a breath. I know nothing until I know something.

Welcome to my very first post! If you are familiar with the song by Led Zeppelin entitled “That’s the Way”, you may understand  the tagline I have chosen.  I am approaching 50 and have come a long way in life as we all have at this age an older.   I plan to ramble on about many things and what I have learned along the way… my upbringing, relationships, pets, spirituality, body image, employment etc.

What I am sure of at this time in my life is that anything I used to think was important really isn’t. If I do not resist life, it flows beautifully.  Looking forward to putting my thoughts into this new blog.

Thanks for reading!

And yesterday I saw you standing by the river, And weren’t those tears that filled your eyes, And all the fish that lay in dirty water dying, Had they got you hypnotized? And yesterday I saw you kissing tiny flowers, But all that lives is born to die. And so I say to you that nothing really matters, And all you do is stand and cry……..
