Now That I’m Older Smarter
I realize things about myself and my life. Sometimes I wish I’d learned these things earlier. Most times I appreciate the time so I could learn along the way. I guess if we were all handed a book of knowledge to start this trip, there wouldn’t be near as much fun, lessons or epiphanies.
Epiphany: everybody farts.
Lesson: let others think we don’t know they fart.
Epiphany: what you drive doesn’t matter, where you’re going does.
Lesson: get a car that runs.
Epiphany: the world does not revolve around me.
Lesson: I’m very important to most people in my world.
Epiphany: I don’t need to worry about every one liking me.
Lesson: it’s not easy to accept that some people just don’t like you. But you can live knowing this.
Epiphany: I can do more than I ever thought possible when I was younger.
Lesson: achieving something is often, usually, more about the work you do to achieve than the end result.
Epiphany: I am one person but am mother, child, sister, wife, friend, cousin, aunt, etc.
Lesson: So why can’t God be Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
Epiphany: I can’t make you think I am brilliant.
Lesson: I can believe I am brilliant anyway.
Epiphany: my husband is a saint.
Lesson: I complain, snark and bellow. He’s a better husband than I am a wife.
Epiphany: getting caught in the rain on a bike ride results in phenomenal bike rides.
Lesson: don’t start a bike ride when it’s raining.
Epiphany: sometimes I’m wrong.
Lesson: sometimes I need to admit this.
Epiphany: I talk too much.
Lesson: It’s okay if others tune me out and/or I should shush.
Epiphany: criminy I get mad too fast.
Lesson: reign in the temper.
Fun: starting out ignorant. Gaining some insight. Remaining ignorant enough to continue having fun while still learning. And knowing you all sit there reading your blogs and y’all fart.
