My A B C’s of Life

I consider myself fairly laid back…for the most part. I really am more of a home-body….not really one for going out all over the place…with every free moment that I have…unless it is a vacation of course. At least this is more of how I am now that I’m older. My life isn’t perfect…I’ve never claimed it to be…but it’s perfect for me. Don’t get me wrong…there are so many things that I long for and even yearn to do…but for now…it’s simply all about the timing.

There is so much more to life than just getting up every day…going to work and coming back home….right? I would like to share with you my A B C’s of Life. You never know…it might just be something that you would like to incorporate in yours as well.

Life…It’s All About The Alphabet

A is for “Attitude”…..It’s all in how you handle yourself throughout life…a positive attitude will do wonders.

B is for “Believing. Just believe in whatever matters to you the most…all of the rest will fall into place.

“C is for Cherish.” This goes for all of the little things in life…for the little things can and will become the greatest gifts of all.

D is for “Destined.” We are all destined for good…it’s just that so many people do not see certain things as good and it gets overlooked.


E is for “Emotions.” Oh…life, life is so full of emotions. It’s these emotions that help to mold our soul.

Things Remembered

F is for “Friendships.” They can and will last a lifetime. There are so many different levels of friendships…and all are meant to be in our lives for one reason or another.

G is for “Generosity.” This is a quality that is lacked by so many….yet it is so easy for others.

H is for “Happiness.” This is something that comes from within…until you have this with yourself….you cannot share it with others.

I is for “Innocence.” We all want to grow up too fast….then have our kids grow up fast. Tone it down a bit and hang onto the innocence of life.

J is for “Justice.” This can easily be a sore subject for many. But since I am against any type of disagreements among others. I will just say this. I believe in justice for everyone for the most part anyway. But if someone has hands down broken the law, in whatever fashion. Then justice (hopefully) will prevail.

K is for “Kids.” I always say, “Kids will be kids…so let them.” I am 100% in disagreement that kids need to take on adult roles. There are way too many adults, that can’t even take on adult roles…so, let kids…be kids.

L is for “Learning.” Life and living….it’s all about learning. This is the beauty of it really. Aren’t we all just thirsty for what life has to offer? Whether it be through, schooling, parenting, vacationing and just everyday living…we are all learning.

M is for “Marriage.” This isn’t something to be taken lightly. It does take a lot of work and dedication. But so many people jump in and out of a marriage as if it were a ride at an amusement park. Marriage is about partnership..leaning on one another…disappointments and sacrifices. But, then again….so much more. Marriage is a commitment in sickness and in health…for better and for worse. But with all of that being said….never settle…it’s unhealthy and heartbreaking.

N is for “Negativity.” This is really hard on so many levels. When someone is in a negative place in their lives it can be detrimental. Nothing is perfect, and things can happen in your life to bring you down. But dwelling on negativity is the worse thing that anyone can do. Write down what’s bothering you…talk to someone…just ask for help…but above all…never let it consume you.

O is for “Optimism.” Well, it sort of seemed appropriate since we just discussed the negativity in life. I really do consider myself an optimist. I really do try and keep my attitude to reflect the good in things and situations. Believe me…I’ve had and will have times that will get me down, but I feel that being optimistic is much better than not.

P is for “Peaceful.” This is how my life is as I write this. My kids are grown and on their own. I’m nearing retirement is about three more years…I’m happy and healthy. I am blessed.

Q is for “Quality.” It is the quality of life that is worth more than it’s weight in gold. It doesn’t mean if your rich or poor. It’s simply the way you live your life.

R is for “Resilient.” We will all live through at least one situation in our lives where being resilient is what will be needed to carry us through.

S is for “Satisfaction.” This fulfillment for one’s wishes, expectations or needs, or the pleasure that can come from it.

T is for “Today.” Well, you know…never just live for the tomorrow…live for today. Because sadly tomorrow may never come. So, live today like there’s no tomorrow.

U is for Understanding.” Never judge…be understanding instead. When someone confides in you or needs guidance…they’re ultimately asking for help. Understanding and compassion is always the key. Be there for them.

V is for “Victorious.” Every accomplishment in our lives no matter how big or small is a victory. This is something that helps to mold us and help us grow.

W is for “Wishes.” Life is full of wishes. We wish it was the weekend…wish we were rich…wish for this…wish for that. The list is never-ending. But it’s the excitement that is behind these wishes that really matters. Some wishes can come true immediately and others can take a lifetime. But just remember, it is those wishes that are so worth the wait.

X is for”Xing.” Also known as “crossing.” Things, people, and places will cross our paths throughout our lives and will continue to cross our paths until the end of our earthly time. These things, people and places are meant to cross our paths for a reason.

Y is for ” You.” It’s your life…the way you live it is ultimately up to you. It’s your body, mind, and soul. Treat it with lots of T.L.C., because you my friend are precious cargo.

Z is for “Zero.” This is how many times that you should give up on you..your situation..your life.

So there you have it. My A through Z of life. But there are so many other meanings that go hand-in-hand with life. Life should also be full of excitement, surprises, hugs and kisses, love and romance….lots and lots of romance!

Live like there’s no more tomorrow’s. Love like you want to be loved back. But above all…thank your lucky stars for the life you have and the blessing that surround you.

You are a blessing to me…please always remember that.
