Time away

For those like me living in Southern Florida it seems like summer each day.  We know seasons by the number of "snow birds" coming and going.
Oh those snow birds, they know how to take time for themselves.

Do you and I?  I admit to being a workaholic yet I do take time for me.
Rest, reading, stopping to smell those roses are all as important too

Remember to take time for you please

Worry

How much time i spent worrying never got me anywhere.  Now I reflect, plan and prepare.  
I'm no Pollyanna singing "What's the use of worrying it's never been worthwhile so pack up those troubles in an old kit bag and smile, smile smile"   

Let's keep focus on what we WILL do, how to fix what didn't work and move on toward better good or efforts

Hey even Alfred E. Neuman knows it "What me worry?"

Directions

We bought furniture from Ikea. While putting it together I wanted to read the instructions first.
KD said he's done this before so we plowed in. Two hours later with frustration we read those pages of HOW TO.

There's much of our lives that does NOT come with instructions or does it?  No one penned how to love my man however we both know couples that have been strongly together for some time

We wont pattern ourselves after them but follow the lead of what they do and did


In Twelve Step programs there is talk of "Using the tools laid at your feet"  Dear friend the instructions on life are out there, just find the right publisher for your  product

Your story

We all have a story, some long some not so. They are ours to tell and  live

Let's respect each others stories, journeys.

I know mine has many twists and turns while I'm not always proud of each story I'm not ashamed to call them MINE.

Be Yourself

For crying out loud, stop comparing and start living!  You'll be happier with your life, I guarantee. 

This is crucial: the most difficult thin

g in the world is to be who you are not. Pretending and trying to be someone else is the official pastime of the human race.

The easiest thing in the world is to be yourself

Passings

My uncle died, one of them at least. It happens as my family ages. Some what expected still sad news for someone I could confide in.

"Death where is your victory, death where is your sting"

His siblings will travel across the country from part of the USA with snow and cold to our Florida climate.  Together we'll share stories, memories and love


As someone who's been close to death far too often this passing in our congregant family life is one more marking of the passing of time

Uncle George led a good life.  I'll celebrate that

My Story

When Craig Ferguson said he's changing how he does comedy he said this too

"I am the expert on my own story"

That's true for all of us. We each have our own lives, our own story and we're the ones living it

No one knows me like me. Not my siblings, my boyfriend - no one

Let's live knowing that, embracing that and sharing our own story with others authentically
