BEING YOU – It’s a great thing! Believing something – it’s a great thing! BEING OLD – It’s a great thing!

Don’t Apologize for Being YOU – DON’T apologize for what you believe!

And for heaven’s sake, don’t apologize for being “old”.

I am astounded, and I HOPE I AM WRONG, but I think I have offended some readers in India by stating what I firmly believe.

I am not a child, nor am I ambiguous about the things I have learned over a lifetime.  I’ll be blunt.  Not everyone wants to say how old he or she is, because there is a time that transition from young to old comes upon you like a tornado.  It’s not easy.  Mama was right.  You have to be tough to be old.

One day you are young and free, and the next day you struggle with your aging body, and begin to be treated (by some people) – like you are a plague on society.

I will get back to the point of this post.   I do not judge other people – nor do I expect to be judged.  I am sixty-eight years old, my photos are current as I think it is fraudulent to put up old photos, and I am happy to be where I am…. I am alive and kicking, and full of the same hopes and dreams I’ve always had.

What has changed is after a lifetime of study and research, and praying and living, is I have come to some conclusions.  I call it personal wisdom.  I have a right to share what I believe because blogs are exactly for that – a public place to write whatever you like, and I do!

You cannot have peace in the world if you cannot accept the fact not everyone thinks or believes the same as you do.  But I am an international mother and grandmother (one of my grandchildren is half Filipino, and the other is Moroccan).  They are beautiful and I adore them and the beautiful new daughters my sons gave me.

One of my sons questions God, and the other is Muslim.  Does that mean I love them any less?  I think not.  EACH MAN or WOMAN must choose.

That is our right as human beings.

So to those who I consider my friends in India, do not be offended because I am who I am.  I take no offense to others choices.  I may not agree, but I respect their right to choose their lives.

So whether you are young, old, man, woman, American or not…be proud of YOU as a human being, and when you find what is right in your heart and spirit, stick to what you believe – but still keep your hearts open to love one another.  Our jobs are to worship God, as we know Him, and love one another.  Is that too much to ask?  Again, I think not.

Oh, by the way, don’t tell my husband of twenty-four years how old I am – he thinks I’m much younger.  (heehee) – He says I just get better and better!

Have a beautiful week and try not to judge others for their choices!  We are not infinite; that isn’t our job.

    a user in his/her mind that how a user can be aware of it.
