Question of the Week: Is there something you would like to do that you haven't done before?

So, what haven't you done in your life that you would like to do? An item you would place at the top of your bucket list, so to say. As for myself, I would like to go kayaking or canoeing - in a serene location, no white water. That may happen at some point in my life.

On that same note, I've always thought it would be awesome to be in the Olympics. That is likely not to happen of course. But there are 2 sports that I know of that don't have an age limit on them for those of you who might have that same dream. One is the equestrian competition, which I'm not interested in except for watching. The other is archery, which is very fascinating. I believe with the right amount practice a nearly 60, 70 or even 80-year-old woman could make it to the Olympics. 

I almost look for the bean bag toss game (aka cornhole) to be in the Olympics soon as well. I would imagine that wouldn't have an age limit on it either. And the reason I say "age limit" is because these three sports - and likely a few others - don't require the physical strength that skiing, ice skating, gymnastics, volleyball, and other highly physical sports do.

I've always been a dreamer, wanting to be a positive example to inspire others. For example, Grandma Moses was in her late 70s when she started painting her masterpieces. She lived to be 101 years old. Colonel Sanders was 62 when he franchised his secret recipe to start KFC. He was 90 years old when he died. These are just 2 people who proved that you're never too old to follow through with a dream. 

Now, go make your dreams come true. And live to be a ripe old age without regrets.

Take care and God bless,

Patricia

Let's Talk Simple!

My Simple Dream For years, I have had a simple dream of helping other women - mostly in the realm of crafting and transcribing audio and video files. As a woman who is advancing in years - and I'm proud of it - I want to expand that help in other areas. In 2020, at the height of the COVID 19 pandemic, I started www.SimplyMakingLife.com . Suddenly, women were being thrown into a world they were unfamiliar with and didn't have a clue how to handle their new life.  I, on the other hand, was well equipped to handle that type of world that had to shelter at home. I was a stay-at-home mom for over 20 years. I homeschooled both of my sons during that time - one for only a few years and the other from Kindergarten through high school. I worked from home and figured out what was important to do at the moment and what could wait. I have also taken online courses and have self-taught myself new skills along this, now, 30-year journey. I learned shortcuts in life that worked just as well a
