Just checking in to let you know that I am still alive. My blog is pretty much dead, but I am very much alive.
Last week I celebrated a somewhat milestone birthday. The big 45. That combined with Mother's Day made it quite a week, which included dinners out, manicures/pedicures, guilt free shopping and lots of hugs and kisses from the family.
Since I am reaching my golden years, I thought I'd share some of the wisdom I have accumulated over the past 45 years.
Anyone who talks continually about how "nice" he or she is, probably isn't. I know this sounds harsh, but I've noticed it's pretty consistently true.
There is no avoiding the passage of time, so enjoy where you are NOW.
You might THINK you know someone else's life, but you DON'T ever really know, so don't judge others too harshly. Be kind.
If someone is talking trash about other people to you, you can be darned sure they are talking trash about you.
You cannot change even other people. Don't even try . Accept and love others as they are, not as you think they should be. Everyone will be much happier if you do.
I've got more, but in order to avoid sounding preachy, I'll leave it at that.
If you've got any pearls of wisdom you'd like to add, please do!
I might be old, but I'm always open to good advice.
