Rule 2

Let’s not allow ourselves to be upset by small things we should despise and forget. Remember “Life is too short to be little.”

I was reminded of this rule tonight when visiting my spouse’s great-aunt who is in her 70s. She told me story after story of her youth and recalled each and every detail as if it were yesterday. The frailness in her hands and voice reminded me that we are all given a gift of life to make with what we choose. And so much of life is choice. Not accidents. Not fate. But choice.

What is it that we choose to focus our attention on? What memories do we want to have when we are in our golden years? Will you have smile lines or frown lines?

These are the questions I am thinking about today.
