A prescription for a quiet life by a 60-year-old lady, I summarize in the following lines. She said: “yes, I have changed”.
I am quietly keeping myself away from people who do not appreciate me, but I know very well who I am! now I don’t care about those who let me down, I know that God is keeping them away from me because they do not deserve to be in the circle of the good people, but rather they were expelled.
I am quietly dealing with those who try to provoke and push me into a sterile controversy, I can’t stand anymore, I say you’re right and calmly withdraw.
I decided not to negotiate over the price with the seller of fruits and vegetables, as, in the end, some pennies will not make me richer, but they may help the poor seller to provide some commodities for his children!
I also pay the taxi driver without waiting for the rest of my money, and even I deliberately sometimes pay more. The extra amounts of money may put a smile on his face anyway.
I am believing that I am not responsible for the universe, I am not the man who carries the globe on his back, “The Atlas of the World”.
I learned not to criticize people even when I realize they are wrong, so I no longer care about reforming people’s understating and ideas and making everyone perfect, Peace with everyone is better than fake perfection!
I practice the art of compliments generously and freely. I have learned that it improves the mood not only of the one who receives the compliment but the one who gives compliments as well, especially for me!
I learned not to get upset when my shirt is getting wrinkled or dirty. Personality is more important than appearances!
I do everything that makes me feel happy and enjoy my life. Age is passing, and my children are part of my life, not all of my life. I learned to enjoy my relationship with God. After my death, how many people will they remember me? Thus, I understood that I am responsible for my happiness in this world and after death.
This is a prescription for a quiet and successful life from a woman who is very experienced in life
