I love this. LOVE THIS. At 45 it has taken me... well, 45 years to understand the real truth in this statement. I spent most of my life trying to keep all the balls in the air at once, trying to make sure everyone was happy, having fun, pleased with everything I was doing or every decision I made. Turning 40 (and yes, it is such a CLICHE) changes you. I make decisions now based on what is best for me, my family, or the "greater good"... that usually means SOMEONE is not going to be happy. Shockingly, I learned this has not left me with any fewer friends or loved ones (at least not any that matter) and it HAS left me with considerably less stress and more peace of mind. Try it... it is freeing.
I do like to please Dear Daughter, and she was NOT pleased when she read my blog and I mentioned we bought this shell sign on a vacation to Amelia Island:
|Decorating with Etsy|
|Free Vintage Santa Kids Christmas Cards|
EEK. I stand corrected.
