Yesterday I turned 55. Wow. A bigger wow is how old my parents and older siblings (:)) are.
Not where I expected to be at this age, but I’m not in a particularly bad way, so I’ll take it!
Things I have learned? Too many to name, but a few worth sharing:
1.) If it looks too good to be true, it probably is!
2.) Be true to yourself… it teaches others how to be true to you, too
3.) Life isn’t about material things, though they can entertain us and distract us from the hard times, and there will always be hard times. It just changes.
4.) If you want to be happy, look to yourself to make this happen!
5.) Be grateful, humble, and know that it’s always darkest before the dawn.
6.) Diet soda makes ya fat!
7.) Music, art, all very important for our sanity, peace. Otherwise, what are we fighting for?
8.) Always tell those important to you how you feel. Everyone needs to feel loved, appreciated
That’s it for the night! I’ve had a really nice relaxing day, filled with wishes. I was fortunate enough to talk to my parents, as I’m fortunate to still have them here.
I don’t expect to set new records this new year. But I do expect myself to always put my best foot forward, be kind to others, even those who think or feel differently than I do, and always look to make a difference in someone’s life, or day.
