  1. Lots of things to be grateful for today but one to be sad about. Once a week I help to run a small shop at a nursing home. It’s a chance for residents can buy tissues, snacks and the like. Bill is a regular customer. Over the last few weeks I see that he’s failing. Today he couldn’t remember what he wanted to buy, even though I ran through all his usual choices. I’m grateful he and his wonderful Scottish accent are still with us, but I worry for how long.

  3. Great quote, Deb! We have to be dependent on ourselves, for sure! But, I think we need each other in social ways. Good morning Deb! I hope you have a FUNtastic day! ((HUGS!!)) xoxoxo

    • Thank you. Oh I think I may turn this into a post. I’ve had some interesting comments. My intent is that we should rely upon ourselves for our happiness and success not others, as it is too much of a burden on the others if they feel they are responsible for making/keeping us happy. And we should be able to depend on ourselves and God to fulfill our needs. Of course it’s wonderful to have others to talk with and share things with but what my life is/becomes depends on me. I totally get what you are saying, though. Good afternoon PJ! Thank you. I wish you a day of independence. πŸ˜‰ ((HUGS!!)) xoxo

  4. I would have to say that people have a huge impact on your life. I don’t think that I personally am a grocery store or electric company. I need other people, such as those who work in a grocery store or electric company. I also don’t think I would have a great quality of life if I did not talk to people. I understand that I am in control of my destiny, but my life wouldn’t mean much if other people weren’t in it.

    • People only have a huge impact on our life if we let them. What I’m saying is, don’t put the burden of our happiness and success on others…we need to be responsible for our own happiness and success and we should be. πŸ™‚ I actually think we could have a wonderful quality of life even if we didn’t talk to people, they certainly can enhance it but they can also ruin it, again if we allow it, either way. I do understand what you are saying and I’m not saying we should not have others in our life, we should.

    • Too true. I have always known that, but I don’t do well with isolation, either. I can only if I want to be. But I don’t right now, and it’s hard.

    • Just the name you give it “isolation” makes it seem awful. I have lived alone for a long time and it was hard in the beginning to get used to but now I love it. But I think that comes with time and age too. Over time you get to be very comfortable with yourself and you enjoy yourself, it’s really quite wonderful. xo

    • I understand. I like spending time with myself, but I also want to be around people my age from time to time. I just want a balance of both worlds.

    • I like balance and I think it’s a good thing. Spending time with others is as essential as spending time with yourself and you should enjoy doing both. It sounds like you do.. πŸ™‚

  5. Deb!
    I can understand what you want to convey by saying our life is not dependent on anyone but on us only. You mean to say we have to make our lives by our own efforts and hard-work and that we should not depend on others, isn’t?. But when the word dependent is to be used it shall convey other things too, as we are dependent on so many things and people.
    I liked your new intro or about, the previous one was something which I had not liked much, I mean that menopause thing. I wanted to tell about it long back but then did not want to make you uncomfortable.
    This one is good short and also sweet as you are.
    Have a nice time. I have been moving here and there a lot past few days.

    • What I’m saying Shiva is that we should not place the burden on others to make our lives happy or successful, that is our own responsibility.
