A Long Way Baby

 Greenwood Tarot ~ Ace of Coins/Stones

The beginning is where we measure from. My mother-in-law used to laugh and say "I haven't come far have I" because in her 80's she ended up about a mile from where she was born, yet her life was anything but motionless. Where we live seldom has much weight, it is what we do on the journey. 

I've set lots of personal goals, but don't know many people who set life goals. A nephew who vowed to be a millionaire by the time he was 25. He has bypassed that many times now I think. Rob wanted to be a truck driver, was, be careful what you wish for... Lots of people who went to college to be X and spent their lives doing Y and Z. 

Whatever method we use when we review needs to be flexible rather than rigid. Because we've come a long way, Baby. This 1968 ad is a good example. And cringe worthy. And probably current too.

  1. That is a cringe-worthy ad - mostly because it was telling women what they wanted to hear so they could sell them something they didn't need.
    I'm one of those who went to college (because it was expected), got a degree which I couldn't do much with other than use it in my personal life. I guess no experience is wasted if you learn something from it (but that doesn't mean it won't cost you!).

I welcome your thoughts. Good bad or indifferent; opinions are the lifeblood of conversation and I always learn something from a new point of view. Thank you for visiting, Sharyn
