My thoughts about 2 months shy of my 60th birthday.

Keep in mind: reality bites.  Sometimes, it is very hard to face reality, let alone accept it.

Have no expectations other than anticipating the worse and being pleasantly surprised if it’s better.

What goes around, comes around—and what doesn’t kill you, makes you stronger.

Never let anything take such priority it overshadows common sense, reason and most important, God or His timing.

Learn when to hold and when to fold.  Look for the tell-tale signs and learn the art of gracefully bowing out of a “no-win” situation.

Seek first to understand...then to be understood. It’s not about you.

Remember, someone does not have to be wrong for you to be right.

No ones forces you to do anything. You choose. Be responsible for the decisions you make--no matter how much it hurts.

Learn to love others unconditionally. Allow them to be human and make mistakes.  Forgive them--then forget.

We are the sum total of our life’s experiences. Laugh and the world laughs with you, cry and you cry alone. 

I choose to laugh.
