6 things I learned in October

1~  I am still a morning person, but I need a half hour or so to gather my thoughts before the world 

descends upon me. I love to watch the sunrise and hear the seagulls waking up and squawking at one 

another. The very first bird singing out with the very first bit of light. I have learned that I want to 

know those things before too much interaction with other people. Joe has a night shift job now and 

comes home at about 5 in the morning. For him it is evening and he is ready to chat and chat. For me it is

still time for reflection on what the morning holds. So, I am learning to balance the two...I'll let you 

know how it works out. So far I've only lost it once. 

2~  Once you make your decision the universe conspires to make it happen. I have learned that I am

 stronger, smarter, and more capable than I give myself credit for. That is true with changes I make within

 myself and also with changes I make in my relationships with my loved ones. I can assert myself with 

love and caring and respect for all. I have learned that I am good at that. It turns out that it is true, Love is

the most important thing of all. If you have truly checked your heart and know that you are doing 

everything with love you should move forward. If you are serving others and not just yourself, 

you are in the right place. I have learned that I do not agree with the adage which states you must make

yourself happy before you can make others happy. I do not agree at all. I think it is impossible to be 

happy within yourself if you are always seeking your own happiness. You must bring something good

to some one else first and foremost because that is where all  happiness comes from. That doesn't mean

you must sacrifice your own  happiness. The more you share the more there is. 

3~ Calm down....every little thing shall be fine. This is one I learn over and over....but my calm spaces are

so much longer now than they used to be. I am happy and content with where I am in my life now. I am 52 

and I wouldn't want to go back. I am enjoying this time in my life very much. 

4~ In October, I learned (am learning still) to love the ones who don't love me. There are so many angry

and bitter people. It's best when I don't respond to them because their drama isn't my drama. I can 

acknowledge their anger without responding in anger. I am so much better at this than I used to be. 

5~ I have learned more about how to live small and balance a budget. I am more involved with the family 

finances now and can direct what we spend and what we don't spend...or at least what we spend our money


6~ I saved the best for last. In October I learned that I am going to be a grandmother!!! I am ecstatic, 

overjoyed, worried, anxious...and every other thing you can think of. I absolutely cannot wait to hold 

that little monkey baby in my arms. I want to smell the smell of my daughter's baby and see those tiny

fingers.  I don't even know how I'm going to make it to June!

7~ Bonus -I have learned, that life is just so extraordinary! To think that my baby is going to have a baby 

is nothing short of miraculous. My beautiful daughters are going to be a mother and an aunt. I am going 

to be a grandmother. As I type, I am watching a bright red sunrise over the ocean and so many geese 

flying over my house on their way to warmer places. I live on a rather tiny island with a man who

is truly my best friend and confidante. Yes, there are a few rough spots, but all in all, it's a pretty sweet

gig. Sometimes I just have to sit back in utter amazement at all the blessings. There are no words to 

express my gratefulness or  thankfulness. 

Perhaps that is why  I feel so strongly about my number 2. You just have to share the love. 

When you have plenty you build a bigger table not a bigger wall. 



  1. This is a beautiful and very meaningful post. We are in a similar stage of life and every bit of this resonated with me.

  2. nothing in life beats the joy of being a grandmama. nothing. i'm so excited for you, Kara.

    sharing these shores with the next generation is truly the greatest gift.

  4. Maybe not commonly correct! expert Teeth bleaching item companies mostly need Hydrogen Peroxide or Carbamide Peroxide while the substances
    as part of the tooth whitener gels. The chemical peroxide (HO) are
    a bleaching rep which changes into liquid (HO) and emits an Oxygen compound (O) during the
    process associated with the compound impulse. Both Waters and Oxygen are common, safer pieces
    of our daily homes.

    The Oxygen particles permeate the coarse area
    of your dental (however they show up soft, they might be microscopically coarse, rod like crystal
    clear organizations) and dislodge staining contaminants.
    I like to describe this by imagining the television advertisements which demonstrate just how a clothes
    wash powder with oxygen lifts blemishes from your own clothing.

    Acidic production can eliminate tooth enamel because of your tooth enamel.
    Check for teeth whitening services and products using peroxide
    and is pH balanced, which means obtained no, or low
    acidity degrees. Adding acidity into outlook, you should be
    aware that everyday fruit juice is proven in lab researches to ease (and possibly erode) dental tooth enamel by many x a lot more than a certified hydrogen peroxide situated dental brightening
    serum could, if utilized properly.

    Once you've found out the computer that greatest works for you, make time to always train excellent oral health behavior.

    Brush and floss your smile every after meals, and your own dental expert often for a skilled maintenance that will scour even inmost recesses of one's gum
    tissue. In the end, that is the essence of correct cosmetics: it's a
    look into what sits beneath.

    For the following half a year I attempted the many various tooth pastes available on the market
    without any visible results. I actually looked at obtaining my favorite your teeth whiten up by way of the dental
    expert but I could definitely not spend the money for outrageous pricing the
    dentist was asking.I even checked out aesthetic dentistry to lighten my own tooth enamel, even so the cost were huge.
    After going right on through every one of the feasible techniques I looked to the net.
    Here I realized tips to get pearly white teeth by doing a bit of
    investigating in to the teeth bleaching procedure.
    On the web I attempted discover some economical opportunities.
    We invested times investigating for you to get dazzling pearly white teeth with the aid
    of free of charge examples of these products, and all
    it expense is a few dollars for freight.

    And another wonderful night I entered below and determine Teeth bleaching Kit and that
    also at a very inexpensive price tag. After browsing many of the testimonies and information I imagined of creating a
    try thereafter I purchased my personal free trial bring.

    After checking out this teeth whitening product I got right back my own whiter teeth which improved my favorite self-esteem, and let us to laugh much more show up
    a lot more pleasant and out-going. My friends furthermore discovered the improvement after just a couple instances.

    Currently I feel like smiling all the time and that's way too with no concern and fear of featuring our teeth.
    Personally I think therefore safe today.

    You just need to twist teeth whitening applicator in order to apply the teeth whitening
    gel, in addition the implement this teeth
    whitener gel towards your smile, and wait around 60 seconds when it comes down to active ingredients to
    take effect. This remarkable tooth whitening system requires only
    couple of minutes to make use of and a few seconds to offer ideal laugh you've often hoped
    for. This especially developed serum quickly eliminates area blemishes and penetrates deeper to eliminate stuck stains.It is effective
    on stains triggered by coffee drinks, teas,
    cigarette smoking, burgandy or merlot wine etcetera.
