What’s Driving Me Crazy

To celebrate the release of my latest book – In Pursuit of Perfection, I’ve been blogging all month. Now it’s my turn, on my site.

I know this might seem like a nutty topic, but I willing to bet we all have a list of things that drive us crazy. I can even put them into categories because depending on the day it’s a different list. Today, I’m going to talk about the things that drive me crazy about aging.
First, getting older sneaked up on me when I least expected it. One day I was in my twenties and life was good and laid out in front of me like the yellow brick road. The next day I looked in the mirror and saw lines where smooth skin used to be. As soon as I adjusted to the laugh lines that didn’t make me laugh, my bladder started waking up in the middle of the night. When did my bladder get smaller and why didn’t someone tell me that was something that could even happen?

Then one day I was sitting in a darkened restaurant and I couldn’t read the menu. I tilted my head, moved the menu around under the dim light, but nothing worked. Now I need reading glasses. And before long, it wasn’t just for dark restaurants. I need them for everything. Now I have them all over the house, in the kitchen, on the nightstand, beside the television, on my desk. And I don’t dare leave home without them in my purse.

Oh, of course, there are more things I can complain about, but I don’t want to spoil all the fun you might have in finding them out on your own. You see, no one warned me about this stuff, so at least I’ve given you a heads-up.

Do the one thing you think you cannot do. Fail at it. Try again. Do better the second time. The only people who never tumble are those who never mount the high wire. This is your moment. Own it.

I feel like our culture is so good at pulling other people down and being so judgmental, but there’s space for all of us to be who we are. There’s space for us to celebrate each other and root for each other and not take each other down.

Growth is an erratic forward movement: two steps forward, one step back. Remember that and be very gentle with yourself.

You have to always continue to strive no matter how hard things get, no matter how troubled you feel. No matter how tough things get, no matter how many times you lose, you keep trying to win.

We learned about honesty and integrity – that the truth matters… that you don’t take shortcuts or play by your own set of rules… and success doesn’t count unless you earn it fair and square.

One of the most tragic things I know about human nature is that all of us tend to put off living. We are all dreaming of some magical rose garden over the horizon instead of enjoying the roses that are blooming outside our windows today.

Happiness doesn’t depend on any external conditions, it is governed by our mental attitude.

If you are going to achieve excellence in big things, you develop the habit in little matters. Excellence is not an exception, it is a prevailing attitude.

Happiness is not something you postpone for the future; it is something you design for the present.
