My 2017 goal

Readers!

Age is nothing but a number! If you read many of my columns at www.thewestern-
edition.com, you will see dating and life experiences fits all individuals who are in the dating game.
  
I want to share with you my life experiences and how I can write so many subjects. Taking you on my journey, hopefully, you will be wiser in 2017 than in 2016? This a new year now. So how do you see your life going forward in 2017? Will it be the same boring life as last year? What will be different? Do you have a goal?
  
How old are you? In your early twenties, there is hope for you to make some changes. Forties? A possibility. Fifties, you are still at the starting gate to a senior.
  
I will share my continued goal which has been in progress since 1986. I wrote my first book since living in San Francisco.
  
My writing started innocently. I had written an erotic piece in high school. I let my best friend read it. I was in the 10th grade. He made a degrading comment. I threw the piece away. Then I wrote a poem in 1976.
  
Ten years later, I wrote a novel called “New York Flavor with a San Francisco Beat,” an erotic book for men and woman over 55. I met men and women of varied genders and ethnicity. These experiences led me to do workshops and write for other ages and genders.
 
I wrote a relationship packet, “How to Keep a Spark in Your Life,” and “Brown on Brown: Black Lesbian Erotica.” The book in progress is called, “I’m 80 and Still Having Fun.”You could say I’m still at the starting gate. Why? Here is the good part. I continue my process of writing every day. Getting feedback from men, women and students has brought me joy.
 
Also, it has changed some men and women’s life for the better. One of my students, now 54, told me she sends the column to her mom in South Carolina. I present workshops for singles, family. and students.
  
For some new readers, I reached age 80 on August 4. On September 25, a family member introduced me to a wonderful person who will now be a permanent fixture in my life. We agree and come to the conclusion we are 90 percent compatible; the other 10 percent is growth.
   
Start planning fun time in your life and don’t let the cell phone control your life, as I see this with youngsters and parents. Have verbal communication with your children as well as with adults. I see parents talking on phones and youngsters 3 and 4 doing the same.
   
Perhaps in your case, a lot of changing might not be necessary in 2017.
  
Relationships. Do you have one and how is it going? Your money maker? Your job or business? Does some firing or quitting need to happen?
   
How were your finances this year? Do you need to tighten up your budget? Did you overspend for Christmas? Why? Did you think if you didn’t get everyone a gift you wouldn’t be appreciated? Especially family members, even best friends, or your significant other? So, if some of the above issues need some work, do not be afraid to make changes. Sometimes the fear of change can move us faster in a direction we need to move.
  
Reflecting on 2016, I doubt that I would have done anything differently this year.
  
Send me an email at Midgettsf@aol.com.  I enjoy email. Happy New Year to my wonderful readers! Continue life with joy in your heart. Share happiness with others.
