Warning: this is a calm rant. Like the warnings in fine print on the back of prescription labels.
I have dreams, I am persistent, and I feel joy in learning and reaching for what might or might not be possible in this life. If you, as a friend or professional, feel compelled to give me a reality check or say that what I imagine will never ever happen… please don’t.
Constructive criticism is golden. It assumes that things can somehow or other come to fruition. I don’t have the energy or spirit to lovingly process negative energy.
At this time in my life, it is not my desire to encourage or be manipulated by other people’s disappointments. I’ve survived some awful stuff and I’ve been lifted by amazing good fortune.
Next week I will turn 77 years old. I choose to make the best of every minute I have.
A respectfully submitted rant.
