Goodness I didn't realise it was over a week since I placed a blog here in Dodies Dream World. So Sorry. Hope you like the following though!!!

A LITTLE ADVICE I RECIEVED TODAY FROM MY GOOD FRIEND LIZ AND HER HUSBAND NICK.

Dodie with Sweep
 Not that a single one of us are old-
but we have this to look forward to!!



 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.
Yes,
This is definitely MOI!
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.
Dyed my
hair green as well!
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.
Broken hearts
sometimes

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.

In fact 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 could 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!
