No matter who reads what I write, I am getting it out.
A lifetime of experiences has brought me to this area where nothing matters anymore. All the lessons learned, the hard times which turned out to be the opposite, and the good times which weren't really so good, were they? Realizing as culture has adapted, these lessons mean little anymore except in my own mind.
We got an odd phone call yesterday, asking if Hospice was doing a good job? The 2 old ladies are past reality. They have there moments in time, all we can hope for are there comfort and cleanliness.
Retirement rules what we do and think, or believe in. I am copying this from memory, I do not know who first wrote these rules. Here goes;
A We do not own all the problems in the world, but we do have an impact.
B It is alright to not know all the answers, so stop thinking so much.
C Make peace with your past, It is over and we can't change it. Don't let it ruin our futures. Use the past as a guide post.
D Who cares what others think of me, It is purely subjective and It is really none of my business.
E My happiness is my own responsibility.
F It is useless to compare your life to others. We are each unique.
G Time heals most everything. Forget about it or at least try to forgive.
