60 Things I Know For Sure
I feel incredibly blessed to have lived my life for the past 58 years, and no, I don’t feel old. I feel renewed, rejuvenated and fearless. I feel like I still have a good 50 years left to explore new territories. Anything that did not go right the first 58 years is behind me now and I’m looking forward to a great, fun filled and positive future.
Anyone that is not in my corner as I take my journey into my next 50 years, I wish them well. They however will not be a deterrent nor will they stop me from doing anything that I want to do. As I often say, I don’t care if anyone gets me because I get me! After my dear sweet Tony signs off on whatever I want to do, the hell with everyone else. Quite frankly his opinion is the only one that really matters to me but even he will not define who I am.
Since I have been blessed to live for 58 years so far there are a lot of things that I know for sure. My list are facts about life that I have learned over the years and they work for me. I’m sure you have other bits of advice on your list but these are some of the things that have worked for me and not necessarily in this order they are presented in this blog.
Embrace your age and don’t take it for granted. There’s no guarantee you’ll be around to enjoy your next birthday.
Don’t get so set in your ways that you’re afraid to try something new. Adventure keeps you young!
No excuses. Take ownership of your thoughts and your actions.
No good deed goes unpunished.
Never forget patience and faith. Have the faith in God to know that he has your back and he hears you. And the patience to give him time to work things out in his time, not yours. He may not be there when you need him but he’s always right on time!
Celebrate your birthday each year big or small because that’s the one-day that is yours alone. God made you on that day and you are special, so take that day to feel special and let the world know you exist and you’re happy about it.
Make your home a place of fun and love. A fun home is a happy home.
Be polite to each other in your home not just to strangers because children learn by example.
When momma’s not happy the whole house sucks!
