There has been a little more pep in my step as of late. Someone told me I looked “refreshed” – I’ll take that compliment any day of the week. And Sabrina (the short wig) made her debut at the studio today.
I supposed it has something to do with those radiation treatments behind me. Or maybe, in witnessing what others become angered or frustrated over, I’ve been shown that their worries and drama pale in comparison to those fighting for their lives.
Time has revealed how blessed I am. And it has given way to learning these life lessons:
To not take life too seriously
To accept and respect people’s decisions
To appreciate a sunny day
To not get too caught up in others’ misery
To toss aside anger – it’s not worth it
To enjoy my age
To exercise is to gain power
To travel expands you
To have passion for something – anything!
To recognize that pain will pass
To take risks
To change is to grow
To control others will drive you insane (or to drink!)
To embrace a mindset of gratitude
To trust your intuition
To please yourself first
To accept that perfection is unattainable
To stop and smell the roses
To keep life simple
To always forgive (but you don’t have to forget)
To be proactive
To do the work
To make every day count
To love and live like it’s your last day
To jump for joy – no matter what!
