Me & the wife cum together, a great shared habit to get into.

Cutting most sugar out of my diet. An old girlfriend talked to me a few years back on joining her in dropping a bit of weight. We shared a lot of info both ways; most important is what she taught me about the effect of simple sugars and insulin response.

Not letting stuff at work get to me too much…learning how to let go so stress won’t impact my health too much.

Emptying my pocketbook, except for essentials, every time I go out for an evening or travel out of town.

Many years ago, my then-boyfriend’s mother got purse-snatched while she was walking outside a theatre. She learned a lesson that she shared with me – don’t always bring everything that one would carry for day-to-day activities. That evening, she might have needed her keys, driver’s license, a comb, some cash, and maybe one credit card, but she certainly didn’t need her checkbook, library card, address book, full assortment of credit cards, frequent-buyer card for the market, etc., etc. She lost everything and went through great trouble and effort to get replacements.

Matt is super patient, and I used to be but am not anymore, and I miss being patient, so his influence on me has been really good in that regard.

Following the advice given to me by experts. They are expert for a reason and if you are going to spend time and money consulting an expert, you should at least attempt to follow their advice. (Choose your experts wisely though).

Getting rid of all sorts of life rules and prohibitions and living by two simple precepts.

1. In the Wiccan Way—As it harms no other—do as you will—-

2. I count the day lost I don’t learn something new or cause a person to think

That’s it. Two simple statements. Two folks, decades apart, granted me these small pearls of wisdom.

Learn to plan for, and take an annual vacation away from home. No staying with relatives. Get away, relax, read. The brain needs a recharge. Limit computer, phone to no more than five minutes, then shit it down! Be present in the moment.
