I’m reading more and dusting less. I find myself sitting in the yard and admiring the view without fussing about the weeds in my patch of the garden. My wild flowers are looking great. I’m spending more time doing my hobbies and less time working. As far as I’m concerned, whenever possible, life should be a pattern of experiences to savour, not to endure. I recognize these moments and l cherish them.
I do what l want because l want to…..and that’s good enough. I wear my good coat to the local market. I’m not saving my good perfume for special parties, but wearing it for trips to the hair salon or bank. ‘Someday’ and ‘one of these days’ are losing their grip on my vocabulary.
If it’s worth seeing or hearing, l want to see and hear it now. I will even scores for past squabbles as it’s one important thing l will not leave undone. I’m not going to be angry because l didn’t get my retribution, l will not put it off, hold back or show mercy. Getting even will add laughter, satisfaction and luster to my life. And every morning when l wake up, l will know that getting revenge was worth it and the right thing to do. For me.
