Life’s lessons…..they can be hard lessons to learn but they are necessary in the long run. I was talking to someone today and they were feeling bad about a relationship not working out the way they had hoped. The person thought how could I have done this for over three years and not have seen the “ signs’ . This made me think about a job I had years ago where I was very unhappy but did not look for another job and kept staying until finally one day I quit. Now years later I talk about experiences at that job. I was talking to a teenager who essentially is starting their life and they were talking about life’s choices and they were truthfully looking at them as real choices like behind door one or door two. Life is a choice and sometimes we make bad choices and sometimes we make good choices but ultimately we make a choice that is the right one for us whether it makes us happy or just teaches us a lesson. I am not someone who is ashamed of my past. I’m actually really proud. I know I made a lot of mistakes, but they, in turn, were my life lessons. Drew Barrymore
Best friends……bff’s ……..my buddy…whatever you call them it feels good to have them. I was watching the news the other night and a girl said her best friend was missing and if they did not come back she did not know how she would make it. It made me think of my best friend now and some of my “best’ friends I had as a young girl. They make your life a little bit better. I have lost touch with my best friends who I had as a girl but I have held on to a woman who became my friend 20 years ago. I have another friend for 30 years that is always there for me. Sometimes we do not always appreciate these friendships and take them for granted. But these people are our “chosen’ family. I pretty much only wear Lilly Pulitzer ties because my best friend owns the company. Harlan Coben
So many times I write about going back in time or trying to change something in your life .The if I knew before what I know now it would have happened or not. Of course life moves on even if you do not move as fast. I crossed a fine line this month when I reached out and touched the past. Now here I am thinking of the past and how sometimes it is hard to let go of dreams….whether the dream be a far fetched dream or a small run of the mill dream. Or sometimes whether you should even be having the dream?! There can be new dreams …….. ones which might be the focus when the dream you have has gone bust! I believe you need to always dream but sometimes if the dream is gone …you need to put it to rest ….to bed …or just down right bury it!!!!!!!! It’s no use going back to yesterday, because I was a different person then. LEWIS CARROLL, Alice in Wonderland.
I guess Saturday night is universal for a relaxing day with no work!! Although some people work on Saturdays it still is known as the night to go out. What if you must stay home??? What if you haven’t anyone to go out with or just do not have any money?? You go into work on Monday to hear what everyone has done in the weekend. Sometimes it might be better than what you did….so what do we do???? We count the days until the weekend…it’s all about Saturday night! We do the best we can to make plans …..Sometimes they work out…. sometimes they do not… I am writing this on Saturday night…with a glass of wine my pooch and kitty by my side! What a great Saturday night! Another Saturday night and I ain’t got nobody I’ve got some money ’cause I just got paid Now, how I wish I had someone to talk to I’m in an awful way Sam Cooke
