I know, I know - it has been too long since I wrote a Topic of Light. Today is kind of a ramble post of things that have been floating around in my mind. I don't really have a specific topic in my mind but will see where the points end up leading too.
So lately I been going through some life changing phases and even though I'm not old I got a fright when I realised I was 28! *holy moly* where did my life go just the other day I was 18 and now I am almost 30 and soon I'll have wrinkles!!!
It is actually wrinkles that got me thinking about this post. Wrinkles are beautiful. I think smiling wrinkles are one of the most beautiful features a person could have as they grow older. I hope I have them one day. You want to know why? Because I love to laugh. Smiling wrinkles are proof of a happy, well lived life! They show that you had your fair share of stressful moments but also that you had way more joyful moments. They don't scare me so much anymore. Its inevitable. We all going to grow old. As much as we want to stay young, growing old has its good points.
Here is one of my favourite sayings:
It is a wonderful blessing to have friends that have known you through a few phases of life and know exactly who you are and who you are not. Those friends that love you at your best and love you at your worst. As much as I wish I could rewind my life and re-do a few things, I wouldn't want to give up on some of the best moment of my life and some of the great friends I have made along the way - whether they are still a part of my life or not, because the truth is, friends come and go. Not all friendships are meant to last a lifetime and some friends have passed away. The antidote to 100 enemies is 1 friend.
I used to keep a Jeff Dunham clip of Achmed on my phone and every time I felt my mood drop, I used to go and watch it and have a good laugh!! Check it out... *jingle bombs*
May today be filled with at least one laugh and one smile - then it will all be worth it. The best cure to any situation is laughter.
