happy birthday to me!

turning 56..you have got to be kidding me! my mind is saying to my body...slow down, wouldya! and my body is saying "do ya think if i  had any control over this, i would choose to look like this?"  i am now in the "late" side of 50's....WTF! i never in a million years thought i would be here...well...honestly...i didn't want  the alternative, but who woulda thunk as much as i hate the physical aging process...i absolutely love the mental age. I'm still so young and stupid, but i'm so much smarter and mentally healthy. who could ask for anything more. Except maybe a few more thousand dollars for some body lifts!!! here's to aging...you have no choice...but how great do you feel!

single vs married - one person's trash is another person's treasure?

if you're home on a friday or saturday nite and you're married, that's acceptable, but if you're home on a friday or saturday nite and you're single...there's a whole different perception of who you are.  there are times, now that i'm single again, where i choose to be home alone rather than be out with people i don't enjoy being with. i choose not to go out with men that don't interest me, rather than go out just to say i have plans for the weekend. but we tend to look at those who are home alone as losers. what about all those years they were married and were busy all the time...but unhappy. they CHOSE to unattach themselves and be alone until the right person came along. so let's not be so quick to judge based on what you are seeing from the outside. before you know the real story...why don't you weigh the options of whether it's better to be with someone you're unhappy with...or be alone and at peace.

keep your opinions to yourself

if you have nothing nice to say, don't say anything at all...when i ask for your opinion, then you may give it...and only then.

why is it people think it's ok to criticize without being asked for their opinions? why do they think what they have to say overrules what others do or think? why can't they just keep their opinions to themselves...at least until it's the right forum to exercise and voice them.

on this blog...i AM ASKING for your opinion...but in life itself...people are not silently asking...they are just living...so keep your opinions to yourself!
