POWER SURGES


REAL WOMEN DON'T HAVE HOT FLASHES, THEY HAVE POWER SURGES!

We could all use a power surge now and then...right?

Growing old doesn't have to be the *pits*, although sometimes it seems like it is mandatory. But - how many of us grow old before our time because of our attitude?

As many know, for the past 11 years I have worked as a parttime tour escort, which means I have taken MANY trips, mostly on buses, but also many flying (who would want to take a bus to Europe, Australia, and New Zealand?). As the escort, many times when our driver is busy, I pitch in and assist our passengers as they get off the bus. And you know what? A lot of those people (both men and women) are YEARS younger than me but they are old mentally. Their attitude is old. They *think* they are old. Sometimes, I think they actually want to be old! Others, in their late 80's and even 90's, literally jump off the bus, needing no help at all. And it isn't just because of health reasons either.

Attitude! Finding joy in life. Looking forward to jumping out of bed in the morning. Facing life with gusto. Wow, how much better than to drag through life with no purpose.

How are you facing life? With a smile? A frown? A grumpy attitude? Again, food for thought.
