Reality Bites a ‘Villen by James A. Norton

Learn from your mistakes…or just forget them, and move the Hell on…

One thing I have learned over the years is that while priorities may shift due to family and career, as well they should, that doesn’t necessarily mean your
perception of things changes at all. This applies more directly to people, places and things that indirectly impact our lives.

If that small two sentence paragraph makes sense to you, just as it was written, then my work here is done. Stop reading. Enjoy your day.

It has been my personal experience that people who tend to follow this type of thinking are a little more on the sane side than those who don’t – as opposed to those who have a hard time with this concept, who are quite possibly unhinged. I’ve come across a few of these people in my life – relatives, former friends, people I have met here and there – those who have nothing to do with my life now, and never will again.

In the past, I have mentioned that my life has become so much better since I threw out all the negativity that was pulling me down for so many years. It’s good to have a healthy sense of what has happened, without wasting time mired in retrospect. I truly believe that shaking things off and moving forward in life is so much better than waiting for the next heart attack or stroke to come along.

Isn’t life just too damned short? I think so…

So as this year is coming to a rapid close and we all peek over the fence at what 2014 has in store for us, remember that it is healthy to take stock in both the good and bad in our lives over the past year. It is even better to keep an open mind to what the new year has in store. Find the right mixture of what to hold onto and what to shake off and make your life decisions, no matter how hard they are, based on what you’ve learned to expect from yourself. Nobody can take that away from you.

Also keep in mind that no matter what you think you want for Christmas, be grateful for that which you will receive. It really is all about the thought, and not the gift. I’ve already received the gift of a lifetime – now I am just waiting for December 29th. #goodmorningkitten
