Is Is Still Good To Ya?

"Is it still good to ya, does it feeeeel alright?"
No I am not Ashford or Simpson, but that song of theirs has been playing in my head for weeks...
So I ask again, is it still good to ya?
Is what still good?
Anything...
Your life...
Your love...
Your writing...
Your reading...
Any of it...is it still good to you?
If not, then why are you doing it?
I remember after September 11, 2001, many people started realizing how short life is and decided to do that which filled their souls...what was good to them...
The definitive date for me was February 1, 2003, the day I buried my mom...
I finally knew my own mortality...I was now an elder...
And I could have seen that as a time to grow up...
But instead I saw it as a time to grow out...
To do the things that were soul-fulfilling...
Things like take small honeymoons...frequently with the man I had been married to for many, many years...who I loved as much as the day I married him...
Because it still felt good to me and I wanted it to last....
Laugh until my side ached, because there is a lot of fun out there...
Work on my spiritual self....because I had been living a mighty blessed life....
Considering...
And to write whatever I wanted to write...
However I wanted to write it, without making excuses...
or apologizing to anyone about anything that I wrote on the pages...
You know why....because if it isnt good to me...
Then why do it...
Having it be good to someone else is just icing on the cake...
And there are times when un-iced pound cake is my favorite thing in the world...
Yum, Yum, Yum...
Yesterday I sat down with one of my girls (Hey Shae) and we laughed...
talked...fussed and enjoyed ourselves for hours....
When I took her home, she and I were both grinning from...
ear to ear...
Because we had just done something....
That was still good to us....
I am going to run off now, need a pedi, mani and a massage... maybe a sip of grapes...
So good...

Love and Blessings...

I heard that...I got in a rut this year...but I'm making plans to come out of it...today is my 49th b-day and I'm already making plans for next year because we're going to party like it's 2020 (can you believe we can't say 1999 anymore...lol).

I felt the same way when my mom died, but that was 15 years ago and the urgency I felt then has worn off. Thank you for the excellent reminder!
