An Added Year to My Age [ and less 1 to my Life Span ! ]

February 20 is the day of the year when another number has been added to my age. I am not getting younger. I am approaching 50's. What is the waiting for me in the next years of my life? I do not know. After all, who among us can tell the future, right? However, one thing is certain, I want to spend the remaining years of my life being as positive and happy as I can. Moving forward, I told myself I am NOT going to keep the company of people who made me feel that I am doomed to nothingness because I am getting old, but instead, I will keep the company of those people who made me feel that I can still still mingle with everyone and that I am still a part of something. The kind of people who will laugh with me, not laugh at me. Despite being single and old, there is still no limit to what I can be and can do. And I think that goes with everyone. 

During my younger years, I chose not to avoid dealing with mean, controlling and difficult people. Well, some are not really mean but have a great sense of humor. So great that they made my age a laughing stock. I put up with bullies and insensitive people. I always say that it is wiser to build an ally than create an enemy. That is still true but from now on, I think the ally should be those who respect me, right? With my age now, I realized that much as being able to deal with difficult people is good, it is far more better to acknowledge that we, including myself, are as important as the people around us. And at the end of the day, nothing is more important than having that smile on our face because we had a healthy day. 

Hence, if you are reading this, my friend, whoever you are and if you think this applies to you as well, please allow me to reiterate, you are as equally important as the people around you. And at the end of the day, nothing is more important than having that good smile because you had a healthy day. You do not have to put up with people who made you feel less. I will tell that to myself as well.

Thank you for dropping by and cheers!!!
