Tomorrow, I will reach a milestone in my life. I will turn 60. I don't feel 60 except maybe for the little aches and pains that come and go and I could feel worse but exercising everyday for an hour and 20 minutes (except for Sunday) wards off or at least holds things at bay.

Elevating situations and people above their capabilities can only cause disappointment. After all, we are all human and flawed. No one is perfect (another realization) and to think that people can live up to what your expectations are is not only unfair to them but can be a cause of disappointment to you. Expect nothing and you will never be disappointed. This has been the hardest lesson for me personally but once you realize this, life becomes easier and those words "Expect nothing and you will never be disappointed" becomes your mantra.
I think the results of this lesson brings with it real maturity, acceptance and the realization that you cannot change people or situations to suit yourself. Having said this, if I had a bucket list this would have been the first thing on my list that I would have wanted to accomplish over anything else. Reaching this milestone makes me feel like I have achieved one of my toughest lesson and for me that is a great reason for a celebration!
And I would be remiss if I did not wish everyone who will be celebrating birthdays throughout the coming year "Happy Birthday"!
