I have been speaking to some ladies lately who all have grown children. When do we stop saying children??? So many of the women have issues with being able to see their grandchildren and have problems with their relationship with their own children. Now I heard so many stories that the spouses would give them very strict times to see the grandchildren or their own sons or daughters had no time to see them . It seems we raise our children to learn to fly like the birds and then we send them off to the world to have their own lives but there needs to be time set aside for the extended family. I have travelled in Europe a few times and see such a difference in the way families socialize. The grandparents are very involved. When I was little we always had a family dinner on Sundays for all the family. My grandparents were there and I was very close to them .I learned so many things about our family from my grandparents. So my thought is make time for the grandparents and your own parents no matter how old you are…….you just might be happier and learn a lot…. “Call it a clan, call it a network, call it a tribe, call it a family: Whatever you call it, whoever you are, you need one.”
I know you cannot go home again but sometimes home comes to you in many ways… Last week I wound up in places I had not been since the eighties. It was all chance encounters but none the less I was in these places that I have not been in a very long time! So I started to wonder if they were by chance or some cosmic interference in my life. Is the cosmos trying to tell me something???? If so then what??? I think that these occurrences happen all the time …..we just do not look at it or put the pieces together. Maybe I have a change coming in my life and I am being told to look at the past so I can be ready for the future?? Ok …so always try to put the pieces together when the universe starts sending signals because they usually take time like puzzles to get the message being conveyed…. “Something, somewhere, knows what’s best for me and promises to keep sending me people and experiences to light my way as long as I live in gratitude and keep paying attention to the signs.” ― Jennifer Elisabeth
Exes and stalking…. Social media is so inviting for a person to watch another person’s activities even when they think you are no longer involved in their life. You go on social media and keep updated on your ex! Now on the downside you see who his new partner is and how much fun they are having. She might even be sitting in the same restaurant you were with him. So you watch …get angry…get sad…cry… Then watch more tomorrow…. You hate him her and then yourself for even looking. Then hopefully you realize you now need to move on …so back to social media to find your old friends…. Now how did we ever survive socially in this world without social media?????? “Often you don’t know whether you’re the hero of a romantic comedy or the villain on a Lifetime special until the restraining order arrives.” ― Tim Kreider, We Learn Nothing
Before you know it another year has passed and you are having another birthday. Sometimes the birthday is a milestone or just another year! It is a time to reflect and a time to celebrate. I myself am celebrating my birthday this week along with two others who I know . They are celebrating both their 104th birthdays…. now that birthday comes with a ton of life experience!!! I think birthdays can be the mark as to the time for you to maybe make the changed in which you have been thinking of for a long time….or not………..
