There are a great many hypotheses related to ageing – the good, the bad and the ugly.
Tolerance is perhaps one emotion that intrigues me the most. Ostensibly one should become more tolerant with age – more accepting of everyone and everything. Yessss but no! I find my self perhaps less tolerant but in a positive way (stay with me here). Awareness of what and who I’m prepared to have in my life now supercedes any misdirected desire to fit in and follow the rest of the herd, irrespective of the outcome.
I have been called unyielding, hard-arsed and even un-cooperative – nomenclatures I take on board without hesitation.
To know yourself, to know your boundaries, to walk your path within reason – all good!
This is the view from my office window this morning – soggy start!
