After my previous post on pet peeves I felt I should do as promised and highlight what I love about life in my 60s.
It is only natural that as we get older certain things and situations will annoy us from time to time. But on balance there is so much more to enjoy and be grateful for.
Everyone remembers Christmas – the lucky ones amongst us will have fond memories of family traditions from an early age.
We all do our best to keep our computers secure. In fact, I woke up this morning to a useful link to a very handy guide on computer safety. But in my case it was like shutting the door after the horse had bolted.
All through my life I have listened to the radio and there are some iconic songs that immediately take me back in time.
Do you appreciate a word of praise? Do you like giving praise where it is due?
When I was working full time, I realised the importance of praise and encouragement. Even now at my ripe old age, if someone tells me I am doing a good job, I feel elated. It spurs me on to do better things.
We all have a list of places we would like to see someday. Getting older, we suddenly realise the need to “Just Do It.”
Being in the travel industry all my life has given me access to many different styles of lodgings. From large all-inclusive resorts to small family owned boutique style hotels and everything in between. Although I did draw a line at tents… camping is not for me!
Do you remember the song, “We Don’t Talk Anymore?”
It was written back in the 1970s, long before mobile phones had become a part of our lives.
How many of us recall the days when you picked up the phone and dialed your best friend, sister or Mother for a long gossipy chat? Usually, you curled up on the sofa with a cup of tea or coffee. Or, perhaps you had a glass of wine or a gin and tonic close to hand.
It’s funny the things you start to realise, as you get older.
I have been told I am a smiler, complete with a one sided dimple. Over the years, a sunny smile has gotten me through some difficult times and challenging situations; and yet I am only just beginning to appreciate the power of a genuine smile.
