Thursday Thoughts: Universal Expectations

I was truly hoping this year would start of great guns. You know, peeling out, leaving treadmarks on the pavement. Yeah, no. It’s been more of a slow roll. But that’s okay. I’m getting settled into this new stage of my life. My daughter was quick to remind everyone last weekend that I’m approaching my 7th decade of life soon. Even so, I tend to perk up when a message like this pops into my inbox. Go Universe!

This year, Silver, will not be just another year.

It’s the absolute richest I’ve ever imagined, with the most possibilities I’ve ever offered, for the coolest people I’ve ever known to do the greatest things ever done.

Set the bar high,
The Universe

P.S. Silver, this year is yours, baby. publishing more books and all…

From your lips, Universe, to those pesky writing muses and publishing gods. So yeah. I’ll take it as it comes. What’s that old fable about? Slow and steady wins the race? That’s my story and I’m sticking to it. I’m setting my bar high. We’ll see if I can hurdle it. If not, at least I’ve tried. What about y’all? What bar are you setting? (Or sitting at? 🤣 )

    70??? Where has the time gone?
    Like I should talk. I’ll hit 63 next month. I still think I’m in my 40s

      Part of my brain–the tiny portion that isn’t succombing to old-timer’s–thinks it’s still in it’s 20s. LOLOL The body? It’s feeling every dang year. Each and every one of them. 😉 Keep telling yourself that it’s matter of mind.

  2. 70, huh? I mean, I know you’re not my age, but we act like we’re in the same age group. So, 69 or not, you’re in your fifties to me. (Because otherwise, I’m in my 60s and I know that ain’t right. LOL) Of course, Hubs isn’t that much younger than you, and he and I are two peas in a pod. I like to think I’m keeping him young. =o)

    Lady, I’m not setting any bars (or sitting at any). Mostly, I’m just trying to jump all the hurdles set in front of me every day, working to keep up with the other runners, and hoping I won’t fall face first onto the concrete. This week, I’ve been slammed and managed to stay upright, so I’ve got that going for me. LOL

    • Silver James says:

      Your perseverance is the bomb, m’friend! You not only stay upright, you take those hurdles like an Olympic runner! And if we’re going by mental age, I’m (mostly–except when I get an attck of old-timers) 40-ish? Twenty-something? Or fifty-ish. That works. Now if I could just get the damn body to cooperate! 🤣 Hang in there!

Got something to say?
