Becoming the best version of yourself

Little Thought, Big Message –

I’m lucky in that I have friends in all age ranges!  You might think that wisdom comes mostly from those who have “lived” life – not always!

I borrow this from the Facebook post of one of the “youngsters” I’m privileged to know.  She’s somewhere in the age range of “25”, but otherwise very worldly in her thoughts.  Not sure where she borrowed this from, but when I read it, I knew it had to be shared with you all.

“Everybody wants happiness, nobody wants pain,

But you can’t have a rainbow without a little rain.”

Few words, huge message!



I was recently on a trip with a group of women, there were 24 of us.  Talk about diversity of personalities.  I loved it – sitting back and watching the “dynamics” of 24 dynamic women?

Well . . . maybe 23, not sure I should count myself, but . . .

I thoroughly enjoyed these ladies almost more than the sights we were there to see.  I’m always learning different perspectives and points of views, gathering knowledge and information.  The ages ranged from late 30’s/early 40’s to “somewhere” in their 70’s.

A plethora of backgrounds and stories!  Totally fun!

During one of our shopping excursions, I found the pillow that I picture above here.  I did not purchase it, but I love love love the sentiment!  The “30-something’s” won’t appreciate it as much as I do, but some day they will.

As for me?  It continues to bring a smile to my face, as I hope it will to you.
