I have been thinking a lot lately about "acting my age" and quit trying to be Superman. I got a real bad back. I shouldn't be trying to pick up golf cart batteries and trying to tote them around. Stupid, egotistical and foolish! Time has come to acknowledge the reality of my situation. I am not real old but (I'm crippled) and I need to quit letting foolish pride cause me to risk serious injury.
I have also recently been thinking about donating about half my junk to charity and slimming down some. I have enough "stuff" to open my own second hand store . NO! I am not going to do that. To much like work. Giving those extra items to charity would allow some worthwhile cause to get the benefit and they can do all the lifting. I can sit back and feel like I did a good deed without having to strain myself in the process!
I lost a son to cancer and we have a Cancer Thrift store here locally. I feel for anyone who ever had to watch their loved one die from cancer. It is awful. Getting off topic!
My closet needs cleaned out. I got clothes in there I haven't had on in several years. Why keep them? I got shoes I don't wear. Somewhere some poor soul could use a good pair of shoes. Looking around, I got pretty much everything I need. My 10 year old laptop (windows vista) started giving me trouble I went and got a new one for 500 bucks. 3x as fast. 2x the memory. It will easily last another 10 years. Hell, by then they will have one that fits in your shirt pocket and plugs directly into your head! ha ha ha ha
Stuff don't make you rich. Having everything you need and someone to love. That's what really matters.
