Today is 5 minute Friday.  In case you don’t know what that is, it is the brain child of Gypsy Mama.  We write for 5 minutes on the word for the day.  I read it through to be sure it makes sense and add links and a photo and it is on its way.


I want to be relevant.  I SO want to be relevant.  It is quite a battle at this stage of my life. 

I don’t think you understand.  I am now officially old.  I am on medicare and on my next birthday, I will be on social security.

There was a time in my life when I didn’t care about the “crowd”.  Yes, I wanted to be accepted and liked.  But I only wanted to wear what I liked to wear…and do the things I liked to do.  I wasn’t going to change those things just so people would like me.

Why?  Because those weren’t always the people I really liked being with!

But then, with age came teenagers.  One of my daughters kept trying to “fix” my fashion problems…or the ones she perceived.  I did change some.  I didn’t have good fashion sense like she did, but being the mother of teens was the beginning of learning to change.

Learning what was relevant.  Sometimes I learned that what I knew already WAS relevant, but I was presenting it in an irrelevant way!

Now my children are WAY beyond teens.  I still keep growing.  How amazing is that?  I’m not sure that my message changes, but I do think that I’m learning more and more how to present it in a relevant way.

How is that?  With love!

Would you believe I’m sitting in the middle of the lounge at the Relevant Conference writing this?
