Jana Powell

For what in your life do you feel most grateful?
A habit that I wish I had started earlier in life was to listen before just starting to talk. When you dont listen fully to the story someone is sharing then you arent helping. When you dont listen you miss out on the wise words of others. Listening to others is what I really wish I learned how to do much earlier in life, to be able to help others with their own words.


What is the biggest change you want to make in your life?
Concerns I have for the future arent much. I can remember hearing my grandparents complain about the future of our country and young people. My grandparents are long gone. I now hear the same things from my age group. We think young people are lazy, the government is taking our money, etc. These words were true for 1950 and now 2019. If we are kind, loving and respectful our future is always bright.


What do you think is the best feeling in the world?
Traveling is so exciting; my husband and I call it adventuring even if its just a road we have never traveled on before. Meeting new people, seeing beautiful wild things and having a travel partner makes traveling always a fun adventure. Traveling down a road you have never been down is always a new life adventure.


What was the single, best realization you have ever had?
What I like the most about my age. EVERYTHING! In my 20s I just wanted to start my life. In my 30s and 40s I saved lives but I was dying on the inside. In my late 40s I learned to love my body and take more adventures. My kids are grown and amazing so its time for me. Very soon I will be in my 50s. I hope I can learn to listen more and help more young people to love themselves and enjoy life.
