I had quite a discovery a couple days ago. It seemed so subtle at first, but when I realized I missed seeing it all my life until now, it was quite revealing to me.

What I have noticed lately is that I am making many "new" discoveries. These discoveries are so obvious, I have been having a hard time realizing why I would miss them for so many years.

One such example is that for quite some time, my left foot is sore once in a while with shoes rubbing on a bone. My toes in my right foot had lots of space between them, and my left foot didn't, because they were more swollen. Well, I realized my left foot was actually bigger than my right foot. The fact that the shoe guy who helps me pick out shoes measures my right foot. This means I am buying to my smaller foot.

When I realized this, I had to wonder why I had missed it, but I had. It was because I wasn't paying as much attention to possible discoveries in my life as I could have.

Now that I am looking for more, I am finding more. Funny how that all works. :)

It just showed me one more time that when I'm paying attention to my life, and what is "really" going on in it, I notice things I never have seen before. Most of them are so simple and obvious, and yet I missed them--another lesson to be learned, I'm sure.

I find that the more physical, mental, and emotional clutter I clear out of my life, the happier I get. That seems logical. Now, all I have to do is keep doing it. Viola!!

It's amazing to me what I am learning about life right now. I feel like I am 18, having finally completed adolescence and learning what life is really all about. Did I mention that I am not really 18 in chronological age? :) I feel that with all my new discoveries, I am convinced I am 18 emotionally. I mean that in a positive way. After all, that is when most people normally grow up, isn't it?

It seems like I'm on this journey that's showing me the great lessons learned through the mistakes I've made in the past. I'm finding that understanding the importance of these new finds is bringing more wisdom into my life that's making it even better.

I find that consistent exercise is a nice payoff for effort made. My doctor said she wanted me to walk at least 30 minutes a day, 5 days a week. I have an appointment in a couple weeks, and I think it is going to be fun to ask her if 7 days a week is ok, too. That ought to be a good laugh for both of us.

It seems to me like I have more energy by just walking, Zomba dancing, or working out an average of over 30 minutes a day. That makes for good, fun living.
