A Little Life Advice


            First, a toast to you and your brighter future!

  Advice and tips you may be able to use:


Toasting the new year with great neighbors and friends

1) Consider this quote “Never base your life decisions on advice from people who don’t have to deal with the results”  (author unknown) with everything I mention and with any advice I may offer and any tips I suggest . . . you are the one who will deal with the results!

2) My personal advice, and tips gleaned from others, may not work for you, so please consider altering the suggestion to fit your persona and/or situation.  And, please keep referring to the quote pictured here!  You, my friend, are the controller of YOUR universe, so make your life choices carefully, both in business and in your personal life.

3) No matter what you hear, no matter what you see — no one can convince you to do something unless you are truly ready and willing to do it.  So, please listen to your inner (gut) feelings, your self-consciousness and intuition.  We are all responsible for our own well-being, our own happiness and our own paths in life.  Do a little research and soul-searching before making life-changing decisions.

4) Feel free to ask questions (for the public or for me to answer), then check back in a few days for answers.

5) Please offer your suggestions, advice, tips and answers to any questions posted here.  With the disclaimer above, the ones with the questions, should consider the sources.  We are not representing ourselves as attorneys, doctors or any other kind of professionals, so take all advice accordingly and feel free to get a second, third, fourth or more opinion.   My only intent in writing these blogs, advice columns and/or giving you my own personal experiences is to keep you from reinventing the wheel, from making the same mistakes I and others have made and for giving you that leg up — that gentle push — to help you get ahead easier and quicker.   We will all benefit from your improved life.  Thanks for taking time out to read and listen to my advice, whether you take it or not, you might at least avoid a few pitfalls.  Now on to the real advice . . .

My Story . . . My life is a work in progress . . . ever changing and I'm always ready to try something new. I've come full circle in my life and I am now ready for the Golden Years! My goal is to finish at least two of the five books I have started writing. I love writing poetry, especially poems that are therapeutic to write. I would love to meet and fall in love with the man of my dreams, if he is out there and it's meant to be. This is a favorite quote of mine and I do believe it is true: "Come grow old (or young) with me. The best is yet to be." If you are a single (maybe single again), Baby Boomer, you, too, have experienced many loves in your life, some were long-term marriages and some were only puppy loves; however, each one has brought you to this point in your life, maybe trying to find someone to live out the rest of your life with. Hopefully, you are a happy person, not "needing" someone in your life, but "wanting" that special someone to live out the rest of your life with, someone to do things with or do nothing with. We never know whether today is our last day here on earth, so why not live it as if it were?!? The ups and downs of my life have made me stronger and prepared me for bigger and better things now. And, I also think Sam Keen's quote from To Love and Be Loved is so appropriate: “We come to love not by finding a perfect person, but by learning to see an imperfect person perfectly.” None of us are perfect and when we start looking at imperfect people to find the perfect person for yourself, then, and only then, will you find your dream person! Good luck! I truly believe everything happens for a reason and I believe we are all survivors, if we want to be. I love the words and message in Brooks and Dunn's song "Believe", Tim McGraw's song "Live Like You were Dying" and Josh Turner's song, "Why Don't We Just Dance" and "Just a Kiss" by Lady Antebellum. Combine all of the words and the advice in those songs and you will have my own philosophy! Clearly we should enjoy each day and do the things we want to do, so live each day like you were dying! Life is just too short, so make up your own Bucket List and start checking them off now. May God bless! Bragging rights: I have two adult children who have blessed me with three grandchildren each, three grandsons and three granddaughters. And, as of 12/26/2013, all six are teenagers! The youngest is 13 and the oldest is 19 and in his sophomore year at Wingate University. (See My Family photo that my grandson, Stephen, took for me on January 3, 2014 -- my beautiful family portrait! BTW it was around 20 degrees that morning, but much colder with the wind chill factor, when we walked out behind the restaurant to pose for this portrait, that's why our smiles are frozen, our hair is windblown and our cheeks are rosy!) "I am good, but not an angel. I do sin, but I am not the devil. I am just a small girl in a big world trying to find someone to love." ~~Marilyn Monroe~~ ·This quote seemed too good and appropriate for me not to share it with you. RIP Marilyn! I finally had my "internal flip switch" turned back on after years of saying "Never, again!" I am ready to start living life again, one day at a time, as though today could be my last day on earth, because one day it will be. I have missed having a funny, yet, sincere and honest, fun loving, caring and loving man in my life -- could you be the one to enhance my happiness as I enhance yours? Let's find out if sparks fly when we meet face to face from the electricity generated between us -- the "IT" factor, the chemistry that seems so elusive, then and only then can we can grow younger together. I can only promise you that I give more than I take; my love will be unconditional and you will find me there when you need me and in the background doing my own thing when you don't. My life, as with most people, has included ups and downs, ins and outs, the Chaos and Butterfly Theory does make sense to me. This is a great video about how these things do effect us: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HfD1OsP-Bv8 Please do not hesitate to drop me an email, asking me questions or making comments regarding any of my blogs. I look forward to hearing from any of you, especially the potential Mr. Rights. Until then -- take care. Sandy
