An upbeat attitude is in the offering

What we have here is an ability to improve on what we already have. That doesn’t mean materialistically, and in truth I don’t need anything in that regard, all is well there.
It does mean in the way I think about life and the people in it a reawaking into my values of the real quality of life and what that truly means.

We all go through ups and downs in our lives and most of us if we are lucky enough to grow older have some ills.
But how we use the pluses not our minuses is what we all should try to make the most of and take mental inventory of that and the best way to go about that utilization of our pluses, that is.

In theory, a zest for life is what we all strive for and desire.
Enjoying what we can daily, and I don’t mean exorbitant spending on those materialistic things again just joyousness about being alive and being able to wake up and get up and out; those small treasures.

Times get overwhelming, and can create havoc, and we all do know that, but as my Dad used to say, it is always darkest before the dawn.
And in my book, truer words were never said my reality check and metaphoric slap in the face!

Again, nothing significantly has changed in my own small world just the way that I perceive it, and guess what the best part of it all is?
I bet you can guess…it’s monetarily free! But work must be done to change this habitual negative way of thinking and that can be quite time consuming, but worth it!
They’re times in our lives when we know in our hearts that we have grown by leaps and bounds emotionally, I have been slightly retarded in this area since I was never ever taught coping skills since most are learned from their parents and mine had none; at least my Mom didn’t. That’s not to say that she was a bad person, she wasn’t at all, it’s just that she didn’t know either and then that created an extreme worrier in her, which we all know children pick up on and imitate, and so the problem goes generational.

Life does go on with or without us, and we as individuals are such a miniscule portion of the entire concept; just a spec on the total continuum. So why not have fun while we are here, and try hard to never complain, ugh, one of my biggest flaws, and laugh as easily as you can, it causes endorphins to kick in and will deal with any pain you may have or may cause, I made a funny…laugh…ha, ha, ha etc. into infinity, and I DON’T MEAN THE CAR!!!!!

Good night to all, take care, be safe, and to all count those blessings and I will narrow my search, OK?

Today the roofers finished the roof and Hubby saw the eye doctor...

Oddly enough, now with all the walking on our roof we have a crack in the seam by the ceiling over the doorway to the bathroom in the sun-r...
