This week's "7 THINGS!"
I’m with you 🥰
I'm totally on your page here, Mandy!
I've realised it isn't time to worry about what others think.
I've been through enough in life to do what I think is best, with the experience life has given me, behind me.
In fact, when you see me at the weekend, I'm au natural hairwise, now, celebrating each white hair as a medal for things I've got through in life! I've had comebts from older members of our community, asking why I"m not dyeing my hair. They were of a time when they were pressed to look younger, and grey's and whites were a sign of ageing. Right now, I love mine, and I tell them! My father in law can't understand why I won't dye them.
I wonder, are they worried that if the younger generation embrace their greys, they will seem.even older, especially those who still religiously dye their hair jet black in their 79s and 80s?
Yes, I'd love to lose weight, but that's for my own good, not for other people.
I do accept things out of my control a little easier, however, I'm more likely to be outspoken, too, as I know life is too short not to call people out! 😁
Hear hear 🙌👏👏👏
So very true. As teenagers we always worried about what people thought of us, now with hindsight it doesn’t matter as it’s their opinion not ours x
If only we knew then what we do now!!
Brilliant! I love your 7 things. What a great place to be, I was getting there but now I will join you. One of mine is just ‘being’. Lockdown taught me that just having the time and space to just ‘be’ is a treasure. Have a good week ahead, try to stay cool xxx
Excellent piece and completely agree! I’ve felt each of these over the last few years and have been closer with life as a result.
I’m running right there besides you. I’m a few years older than you at 72 but as the years go on life gets so much simpler. The world trots on by you but you stay lovely and comfortable in your life. The only thing that causes me to have a mini meltdown now is if I can’t find my glasses or my kindle 🤣😂xxx
I agree with all of these so many years worrying what others think and people pleasing still feel guilty when I say no 😜
I’m with you 🧡
