I Promise You a Smile

If you can spare 18 minutes to watch this, I promise you a big grin...or your money back!  We must celebrate our generation's accomplishments and keep them fresh. I believe we can still change the world. This video, like us, gets better as it goes along.  I am now returning to the blog I was writing...

What I Have Learned the Hard Way This Week

Today, I give advice. (snort!) I have always given advice, requested or not.  I usually give it hoping to save someone else the pain of learning something the hard way.  For the first fifty years of my life, I insisted on learning things the hard way.  With age comes wisdom, right? (double snort!) After much "learning" I have been considering advice. No, I did not say I was always accepting advice.  Sorry, I'm off on another tangent. Back to the advice, given with love, to everyone as they mature (remember, I have learned this through trial and errorerrorerror)...
After all, in what I thought at the time was a political statement, Lily Tomlin wore a lanyard with a notepad attached in the movie 9 to 5.  I now conclude it was not a political statement, but a life lesson I was not yet ready to learn.  If you have too many plates to juggle at one time, write them all down.  I promise, it will be quite satisfying to mark them as complete with your favorite highlighter. You will also avoid the I-know-I-came-in-here-for-a-reason syndrome.  I could not find an image of the fabulous Ms Tomlin wearing the lanyard, but I have found the lanyard.
