I have borrowed the above phrase from a book by JEAN SHINODA BOLEN, M. D.
She is a very wise author on understanding the process of getting older and wiser.
Recently, I have suffered a major disappointment......no I'm not talking about the usual every day things....I'm TALKING ABOUT A MAJOR LIFE CHANGING EVENT....ONE THAT HAS MADE ME SIT UP AND PAY ATTENTION........
it has made me view people and my surroundings in a completely different light.
oh I know you are thinking at my age I would of figured some things out....but life is a lesson to be learned and we are never to old to learn or be taught.
This is what I have learned:
"Crones trust their instincts about people and principles."
"Trust grows through growing older and wiser, through learning from life."
"A painful lesson taken to heart makes an impression."
Not everyone you want to help.......wants your help.
some people never get it.....
During this upcoming holiday season embrace where you are and whoever you are with....
the only person you can work on changing is YOURSELF.
REMEMBER: "CRONES DON'T WHINE"
Gentle readers.....hopefully I have not offended anyone with todays' post......but I had to get this off my chest.
HUGS TO ALL
