Chapter in Life

February 16, 2015

I have found now that I have reached the stage in life where I’m losing people close to me,
receiving high school, college graduation and retirement party invites. Whoa!

I now am the caregiver and power of attorney for my mom. Whoa! It makes me wonder, where did the time go when I was young and free of worries?Priorities are definitely different, along with my attitude towards people, places and things. I look at this as a positive growth, not negative.

It is important for us to take in new chapters in life and roll with it. I believe issues come
when we reject new chapters in life, and that’s when we get stuck in a certain era – basically
arrested development.

Change is hard at times and when we fight against it, that’s when we bring on stresses we do not need.

Let’s take in and embrace all that comes forth in life and recognize what is good and bad.
I will attend all the invites I can and look forward to my next chapter in life of retirement. Whoa!

After a long career of serving others through the Wisconsin Department of Corrections as a probation and parole agent, Tara R. Pulley stays active in her retirement as an advocate at My Father’s House, Inc., assisting fathers in building relationships with their children. She is a member of Sister Speak, a trilogy of writers who formed in 2010 with a vision of self-expression and a goal of healing. The trio states they are inspired by grace, allowing them to take a genuine position on the struggles and successes of everyday living.
