It's neat. (Don't delete this one, you'll love it)

             
                
   

I  would never trade my amazing friends, my  wonderful life, my loving family for less gray  hair or a flatter belly. As I've aged, I've  become kinder to myself, and less critical of  myself. I've become my own friend. I don't chide  myself for eating that extra cookie, or for not  making my bed, or for buying that silly  cement gecko that I didn't need, but looks so  avante garde on my patio. I am entitled to a  treat, to be messy, to be extravagant.

I  have seen too many dear friends leave this world  too soon; before they understood the great  freedom that comes with  aging.

Whose  business is it if I choose to read or play on  the computer until 4 AM and sleep until noon? I  will dance with myself to those wonderful tunes  of the 60 &70's, and if I, at the same time,  wish to weep over a lost love ... I  will.



I  will walk the beach in a swim suit that is  stretched over a bulging body, and will dive  into the waves with abandon if I choose to,  despite the pitying glances from the jet  set.

They,  too, will get old.
I know I am sometimes  forgetful.
But there again, some of life is  just as well forgotten. And I eventually  remember the important things.

Sure, over  the years my heart has been broken. How can your  heart not break when you lose a loved one, or  when a child suffers,
or even when somebody's  beloved pet gets hit by a car? But broken hearts  are what give us strength and understanding  and
compassion. A heart never broken is  pristine and sterile and will never know the joy  of being imperfect.



I  am so blessed to have lived long enough to have  my hair turning gray, and to have my youthful  laughs be forever etched into deep grooves on my  face.
So many have never laughed, and so many  have died before their
hair could turn  silver.



As  you get older, it is easier to be positive. You  care less about what other people think. I don't  question myself anymore.
I've even earned the  right to be wrong.

So, to answer your  question, I like being old. It has set me free.  I like the person I have become. I am not going  to live forever,
but while I am still here, I  will not waste time lamenting what cou ld have  been, or worrying about what will be. And I  shall eat dessert every single day(if I feel  like it).

MAY  OUR FRIENDSHIP NEVER COME APART ESPECIALLY WHEN  IT'S STRAIGHT FROM THE  HEART!



MAY  YOU ALWAYS HAVE A RAINBOW OF SMILES ON YOUR FACE  AND IN YOUR HEART FOREVER AND EVER! FRIENDS  FOREVER!



Forward  this to at least 7 people and see what  happens on your screen . You will laugh your  head off!!!!!!!!!!!
