The only way is up, baby

Updated: Jul 29, 2020

For you and me now.

Things I’ve learned to appreciate with age:

  1. Giving people the benefit of the doubt…Everyone, or at least almost everyone, is simply trying their best.. and their absolute very best with parenting…even my parents when I look back.

  2. The difference between being alone and being lonely and the joy of peace & quiet... just being... not doing... just being.

  3. Seriously strong coffee and a seriously strong Manhattan.

  4. The sisterhood of a book club and the authenticity of genuine friendship.

  5. Not worrying about winning anyone else's approval... not wishing I was someone else... content with who I am...unique, and rare... and fearless... we all are!

  6. NPR...but on hiatus until after the election... yes, I may be ill informed at the moment but I also appreciate self care.

  7. Children’s laughter… always.

  8. The joy of giving...for other people based on what I know they’d love... not what I love... what I think they'd love.

  9. Going back to basics…eliminating the need to consume stuff... I don’t need it to make me happy.

  10. Practicing gratitude every day...gone very woo-woo with age, apparently... best have another Manhattan... shut up...I know its 10am.
