Each week I link up to the #WWandPics link up hosted by Denyse Whelan from Denyse’s Words and Pics. In her post, D is for Denyse & Decisions, Denyse used the word ‘Determined’ to describe herself and then posed the question: ‘What descriptors might you add to yourself these days?’
It made me stop, think and reflect. The last couple of months have been taken up with health issues and coming to terms with conditions which despite living a healthy lifestyle, I have little control over because of genetics. At least I know where I stand and if I hadn’t been living a healthy lifestyle, things could have been so much worse.
The encouraging news was the I had an excellent result from my stress test and the cardiologist said my heart function was phenomenal and more than double capacity of what would be expected for someone of my age, height and weight. #grateful.
I mulled over the word Determined and came up with my ideas of who I am based on each letter. I am also determined to live will and enjoy life (my tagline) despite having to make some tweaks health wise.
I’ve also just completed another year around the Sun and at 66 I am determined to make the most of each day, with enthusiasm and zest.
