CBA* – “Ladies Bible Study will be held Thursday morning at 10:00. All ladies are invited to lunch in the Fellowship Hall after the B.S. is done .”
As I move quietly into my golden years … Wait. I’ve not done anything too quietly as of late. I’ve come to realize that I’m on the other side of the mountain and descending. It’s time to live life on my own terms.
One of the things I decided to do in my retirement, because of my background in creative writing and because I love to write, is to write every day. This blog is a perfect way to do that. This blog is simply writing that I do in order to write. Sorry, I’m not trying to please anyone or prove anything. Just having a little fun without hurting my body or getting arrested.
Another thing on my to-do list is to eliminate negative people from my life. I don’t need to hang around with martyrs, victims, or complainers. Neither do you. Honest.
I also pay more attention to what people say. Oftentimes conversations are too much like scripts that we get caught up in. Listen to what’s being said around you and to you. You, too, could do a humorous blog!
For instance, the other day I was involved in plans with someone and we had to arrange to meet again. “Send me an email to remind me about the meeting,” she said. “OK,” I said, “but you’ll have to send me an email to remind me to send you an email to remind you.” I am so cute at times.
Find your place in the world? Why not make your place in the world. Is it a questions of who I am or a question of what I do? Lot to think about and a great time to paint while thinking.
One of my paintings. Like me, this is a work in progress. It’s called “Happy Circles”. You’re welcome.
