So…….after much reflection of this sunburnt mind, I’ve realized that I should only share my own experiences…….I will try to make those as exciting as possible! I will not be including the thoughts and the involvement of some close to me. Unfortunately, my life intertwines closely with some, but I will separate as needed. My blog is important to me and is a release for me. I will make the changes as necessary.
That aside…here are some recent reflections:
Don’t shave your legs after consuming a bottle of wine……..it could be a bloody affair and one you will regret as scabs form on your shins and knees……….so much for wearing that cute sundress
Your dogs or cats will always love you and accept you unconditionally…..return the favor. If you don’t own a pet, get one ASAP!
Foam mattresses are crap………buy a coil-spring or posturepedic mattress. You shouldn’t feel like you are climbing uphill out of a hole when your significant other is in bed with you.
The songs/callings of northern birds beat the crap out of seagulls
Nothing surpasses the sound of a waterfall
“No maintenance” landscaping is a great concept……..but there is nothing like getting your hands in mother earth to feel alive, creative, meaningful. and spiritual…….the dominions of earth, air, wind and fire…..each has a purpose
Your favorite sports teams and their successes are a great distraction. But there are more important things to life. You will still have to awake at some ungodly hour and go to work regardless of what your team did the night before.
Where you retire really doesn’t matter………….being near your children, grandchildren or family does.
And most importantly…………..you are only as happy as your unhappiest child.
