Giving up

Trying to maintain relationships with people who don’t communicate with me. Done.

Reading blogs that subsist on recycled ideas and mean spirited observations. Living life on the edge ain’t for me. Finished.

Paying more than my share in life. In a world of nickel and dimers, I’ve erred on the side of generousity. No more.

Not dealing directly with people and situations that are unacceptable. I’m no longer willing to have the discussion solely in my head. Over and done.

Avoiding wearing my reading glasses from the mistaken belief that I can’t possibly be at an age when I really need reading glasses. Surrendered.

  1. You know you're so cute in reading glasses!

  2. I have a hard time believing you will not continue to err on the side of generosity…No problem believing the rest though! 🙂

  3. Thanks! @Jon – Your comment caused a few chuckles since a close friend had said the exact same thing! Literally, word for word. I've got to get a game face for more than just 5ks…
