Geez. I'll never be this young again.
(Nor will you, for that matter.)
Tomorrow marks the beginning of the last year I will be in my fifties.
I thought I'd feel older when I got this old.
Ah, but in many ways I feel more mature...
Here are some random things I've learned through the years:
When an older couple is eating in a restaurant and they are not talking to each other that does NOT mean they are not happily married.
When a couple of any age is lovey-dovey in public it does NOT ALWAYS mean they FEEL lovey-dovey towards each other.
When a person tells you something about another person it may or may not be true.
God can be trusted even though you don't understand Him... and you don't understand how so many people can have so many different views of Him.
You don't have to try and understand everything....
You either control your attitude or it controls you.
But sometimes you just feel yuck.
Don't be hard on yourself for that.... just gently let yourself think 'up' thoughts - and focus on God - and the good. (Sometimes it takes a while. It's okay.)
When you begin to think about the possible tragedies that could happen in your life make yourself think about the odds of said tragedy(ies) happening. I mean, don't let tragedies take over your life - especially if they haven't happened!
I say that to say, WHAT'S SO BAD ABOUT FEELING GOOD?!!
LET YOURSELF FEEL GOOD.... even with potential horrors out there.
So those are my random thoughts for today.
(It's my blog after all.)
I'll leave you with this....
A smile is the light in your window that tells people you're at home.
So be at home... and smile.
(And a smile is the absolute cheapest face lift you can buy.)
If you have any random thoughts you'd like to share, share ... I love comments.)
