I am eighty-one now and still learning! As I look back over the years, I wonder what ten-year-old Kathryn (me) would think if she could see our life in advance. Kathryn, I think you would have been pleased and I am going to enjoy my conversation with you every step of the way. I want to share my learnings, musings, and stories with you. Kathryn, let me bring you up to date. It is hard to believe seventy-one years have gone by since I was your age.
Kathryn, I don’t mean to imply that life is perfect now or that I no longer have upsets. Being able to ask myself, “Who do I want to be in this situation?” and having some learnings to turn to have been powerful for me. And so at 81 years of age it is important to me to share those learnings hoping they will be found helpful to those between your(my) age at 10 and my age today.
Oh Kathryn thank you so much for sharing your story with us. This is a great testament to a life well lived but also someone who understands that life didn't always go as planned but taking the bad with the good is part of the process. It's also a great book for use to read and learn from the life of someone else. All ages can appreciate Kathryn's life and the way she talks to her former self. I absolutely loved this.
