Becoming Mellow

Tuesday, December 29, 2015

I'm not much of blogger, but I do have something to say today. As I've aged I've become more mellow. I believe this is true for most folks, but more so for men than woman. Most woman are already pretty mellow. Since I retired and left the world of stress, my life has changed drastically. I'm more at ease and will listen and understand before I respond if I respond at all. I live at a slower pace and have learned to enjoy life, to see the world around me and to be amazed at all the things I was to busy to notice before. I've learned to be satisfied with my lot in life. But the most important thing I've learned is "I GET TO DECIDE." What does that mean? When I wake up in the morning I get to decide what kind of a day I will have. I get to decide how I will respond to the challenges that occur today. Will I be a victim or will I I make the best of my situation. How will I react to the folks I encounter today, Will I be optimistic or will I be a victim? So, what I've come to discover is "I GET TO DECIDE," the world does not decide for me and I refuse to let it. I will be positive and I will overcome. But most of all I will smile and be happy.
