well, well today is another day to be thankful. Do you ever feel like it's hard to be thankful, and should we feel like it's hard to be thankful. I want to say we should be thankful everyday, yet, sometimes we find it harder to be thankful. I am going to be thankful for the life I have today. Yet, it feels hard today to be thankful.
I am thankful for another year of life as I grow older, do you feel we are supposed to grow wiser with the knowledge we have gained over our lifetime. Well, that is "deep" and it depends on who you are talking too at the moment LOL!!!
Stories about our life can be exciting or boring depending on who we tell them too as well!
I choose this picture as this was taken a few months back. Of when I was feeling myself, but today, I am not feeling myself. Just feel like I am going thru the motions of living.
When you are feeling down and low, what do you do bring yourself up to make you feel good about life, and things? Do you reflect over the years of what you have accomplished and does this make you feel good about you? And if we showcase this to others do you feel like you are bragging---and will others feel like you are bragging or will they understand you are mentioning your accomplishments to help you find the good in what you have done throughout your life to feel good about you? Guess that depends as well on you are talking to about what you have accomplished, and how you accomplished this.
I have many things to reflect upon, my educational journey, my induction into the honor society, and my ability to work and continue to work, and hopefully offer my knowledge base to those willing to listen and learn.
The one thing I have learned over the years, and boy do I have many now LOL--- can we count the years from birth to ten? What we learn as babies, we learn to crawl, we learn to talk, we learn how to mimic others, and see how others treat us. But we really learn about life when we turn Ten (10). Or maybe sooner when we start school. This is when we see how others treat us, and how we treat others, and what will make a good friend, or an enemy. And our children become more independent at that age as well. Like Mom I can do it by myself, Ok Mom--I get it....Yes Mom.....I know....boy that was many years ago too!
This is also when we learn how we protect those in our circle. Then we move into or teen years, our adult years, and middle age and then whatever we call ourselves now. Cause at the age of 50 we can get a senior discount. What is ironic is I can get it now and never remember to ask for it LOL! Why, cause I never see myself at this age------well until today. Not sure why today.
Well I digress today is ramblings of a young-old lady, women---or someone who has been around the block a time or two! Lol! The question begets, is how do you look at life? When life hands you sour cherries, do you make a sweet cherry pie, or a sour cherry pie, You know the old saying when life hands you lemons you make lemonade! LOL do you make it sweet or sour! IT all depends on your ingredients.
I do have a story to tell, today is not the time for that story and one day soon hopefully I will be able to bring this story to light with all the lemons and cherries, bells and whistles! OH boy, I see you all chomping at the bit to know....what is this story. HAHAHA!
Till next time-
