    The older I get, the more vocal I get. Not that I would ever be purposely rude or crude... or insensitive. But I will and DO speak my mind anymore, and love that liberated feeling of not having to worry about all the "smalll stuff" ... "who's saying what about me"?

    I frankly don't CARE !!! I've EARNED this state of mind !

    It's wonderful to get to that point in life when you KNOW who you are, accept yourself with all the good AND bad, and just LIVE.

    I enjoy taking the GOOD of every day, and leaving the rest behind for others to squabble over.
    What an incredible attitude you have!!! I am on my way to that thinking....
