Posted by [email protected] on August 1, 2020 at 9:20 AM Comments comments (0)

It's a lazy afternoon and I simply wanted to express a few thoughts and, hopefully, identify who we are as "prime timers" in this newly coined term for retired folk.

Is Your Attitude Showing?

There comes a time or two in life when I wonder if it is my fault that I feel the way I do or if I can blame another person for their poor attitude. Granted, the latter is easier to grasp, although careful examination may prove me wrong.

They say that time heals all wounds and misunderstandi...

You are Not Alone !

Everyone faces new challenges and problems in their lives and the "mix" is a little different with each person. It appears to be a matter of how we look at ourselves, that we can come to an understanding that we are OK, that we'll survive it alone and that life will go on as it should.

Happy at Home

How about doing something right now that will challenge you to go on a mini-adventure at home, while “waiting out” this Covid-19 crisis, and bring a greater measure of happiness your way? Doing something unique and different while at home, may be just what the doctor ordered.

 

My challenge is for you to come up with something you’ve never done before, or close to it, rather th...

A Positive Mindset

Moving Onward to Greater Happiness

I sit here and wonder, what’s going to happen to me as I grow even older? Will I still be able to use my eyes to read, my legs to walk, my ears to hear, my mind to think? It’s a somewhat scary proposition to think about and I can then become nearly paralyzed with fear for the future and what it could hold.

 

Nevertheless, I hope I&...

I feel it’s somewhat important to pass down some thoughts taken from reading,“The Seasons of Life” by Jim Rohn . His book is an analogy of the various seasons, depicting triumph and tragedy in life. He defines guidelines for bringing inspiration to the searchers of a better life.


We’re all going through something that is different now and sometimes a bit scary with th...

It’s a time for reconciliation with who we are as American’s today, as it becomes imperative to re- think how policing is practiced in this country. Black men have been traditionally targeted and victimized as the issue of racial injustice is being cried by the throngs who hold George Floyd highly in regard as their symbol for “Black Lives Matter”.

As I sit in all the glorified comfort of my apartment and contemplate how I ever managed to live this long, something just occurred to me. From experiencing a recent birthday, I’m happy to say that life, as a whole, has treated me well, especially in these later years. 


I feel fairly comfortable now, realizing that having been put through a royal wringer in the past, facing an incredible amount o...
