NOW THAT I AM OLDER

NOW THAT I AM OLDER…

The list of the ‘things I want’, has gotten smaller with every passing year.

These days, I can pretty much narrow it down to – good health for us all, enough money, enough time, enough fun, enough work – really, just enough. Enough. That’s really all that I want.

The list of things ‘I DON’T want’, however, has gotten bigger, a whole lot bigger:

I don’t want….

Drama
Fake friends
Manipulation
Gossip
Bitching
Peer pressure
Bullying
Comparison
Labelling
Insincerity
Dishonesty
Negativity
Small talk
Time wasting
Back-stabbing
Social climbing
Interruptions
Harassment
Selfishness
Self-obsessiveness
Rudeness
Short-sightedness
Racism
Sexism
Any kind of ‘ism’
Anyone telling me that ‘I can’t’, or worse that ‘I should’.

 

As I get older, I realise that I can totally handle all of the above – but I don’t have to.

It’s pretty freeing.

If it costs you your peace, it’s too expensive right?

Ladies, pass it on….

Now that I am older, the list fo things I want has gotten smaller
