Yesterday, February 23rd, I turned 70. What have I learned in 70 years? The major theme running through my life and that of others who I talk to who are about the same age or older is that fewer and fewer things are really important. If a person can say he/she has good health, a warm, loving family and peace of mind then you're way ahead of the game.
Of course there was a time when we were all much younger when things like being accepted, having fashionable clothes (not ever one of my concerns), a nice car, house, etc was important. To some extent they are still important but they're definitely expendable.
What's important now is that I feel good and life is generally good. So onto another year.
