Your prompt for #JusJoJan and my very first birthday-Stream-of-Consciousness-Saturday is: “icing on the cake.” Write about the first thing that comes to mind when you think of the phrase “icing on the cake.” Enjoy!
Today’s Stream of consciousness is Linda’s first birthday SoCS and mine too 😊. That is indeed an icing on the cake for both of us. I enjoy stream of consciousness writing. It is fascinating how our thoughts jump from one idea to another. Thank you Linda for your prompts.
I am sixty today and they have been good years. Problems are part of life and how we face them depends on our inherent nature. Of course, we can learn to deal with situations, but there must be something within us to give the extra push. A loved relative believed we have to learn to accept what comes our way, things which we cannot change. Another senior friend said, early in his life he could not pursue his studies in a subject he wanted to, but had to go on a different path. He learnt to like what came his way. It changed his life, there are no regrets and he is happy with what life gave him.
It is easy when we get what we like but the icing on the cake is when we learn to like what we get.
