Tell them now

You never know what is going to happen in any given day. Be sure to let the people in your life know how you feel about them. Don’t wait until tomorrow – it may never come for some. If you appreciate that someone is in your life, tell them now. If you love someone, tell . . . → Read More: Tell them now

Today’s shootings

I am not even surprised that there are multiple shootings in one day – and that makes me sad. This is what is accepted as normal now – well, I refuse to think of it as normal. If we normalize this, we will never be able to stop it.

The shooting in DC really does . . . → Read More: Today’s shootings

It is what it is

Things aren’t going exactly, or even remotely, how I expected they would go as I got older. I am having to adapt more and more to my circumstances. This does not make me a happy camper.

I am trying to take things as they come, and learn to do what I can do and let . . . → Read More: It is what it is

Do something

I never wanted this blog to be about politics, but here we are. I don’t know how much longer we are going to be able to survive as a country. We have a man in charge who thinks he is a king, if not a god.

I read somewhere that history would not treat him . . . → Read More: Do something

“Helpful” suggestions

I am getting pretty sick of hearing about how the diet someone is on is going to cure everything that ails me. Please understand that I am not annoyed with people who tell me about what worked for them, and suggest that it may be worth looking into. Nor am I annoyed at people who . . . → Read More: “Helpful” suggestions

Healthcare

Whoa – I feel as if I have been kicked in the gut. The republicans passed their healthcare bill (calling it a non-healthcare or tax credit bill seems more appropriate), and I feel like I have a target on my back. I am getting up there in age (okay – I am old), I have . . . → Read More: Healthcare

Grateful

Today I have decided that I am just going to be grateful. I am not going to worry about things in the future – worrying won’t help anyway. There is plenty of uncertainty in my life, but isn’t that true for everyone? I am not going to fret about what we will do about this . . . → Read More: Grateful

We are all one

Here is what I wish the whole world would remember: we are all one. This is true. What hurts one hurts us all. When you do that dirty deed to someone else, it is going to come back to haunt you. It may be years down the road, but eventually you will pay for it. . . . → Read More: We are all one

Be on time

Today I am going to talk about being on time. It’s really important to show up when you say you are going to. I am not talking about being there to the second of when you say you will be. I am talking about being within a reasonable amount of time. What is reasonable? Well, . . . → Read More: Be on time

Company call lines

I have been on the phone with several companies this morning, and I am once again at the end of my rope. Will companies never understand the meaning of the word ‘normal?’ If I hear a disembodied voice say “We are experiencing higher call volumes than normal,” every time I call, then these higher call . . . → Read More: Company call lines
