The beautiful (and I do mean beautiful!) Karen over at Chookooloonks (see her May 20th entry) inspired me by reprinting the poem of 85 year old Nadine Stair. So What Would Wanda Do?
~ Always wear comfortable shoes...and clothes...regardless of the fashion edicts of the day.
~ Care less about what others think of me...or say about me.
~ Take more vacations.
~ Say "I love you more"...and mean it.
~ Learn to surf.
~ Take more risks.
~ Follow my intuition and trust myself more than the experts.
~ Paint more pictures.
~ Hike the wilderness.
~ Learn to speak more languages.
~ Take better care of myself...even if it means not taking care of others as much.
~ Write more.
~ Keep singing even when others want to take it away from me.
~ Follow my dreams.
~ Have no regrets.
~ Put fresh flowers in my room...especially daffodils and roses.
~ Reserve the right to change my mind.
~ Add to or subtract from my lists and not let anything be carved in stone--by me or anyone else.
That's what I'd do. How about you?
