This is the best one ever! I was choked up while reading it.

The only people who fear death are those with regrets

So much truth in this sentence, and I was thinking the same thing to myself just a while ago. I don’t hold anger against people that often attack me, and even those who have used and abused the goodness of my heart. I learned that if we don’t hate, no one can hate us. For we receive only what we give. If we give love, we receive love. If we bless people, we will be blessed much more.

Rose is the symbol of hope we all need in life. A hope that as we grow old, like a rose, we don’t leave thorns in people’s heart, so we don’t have to die regretting the pain we left behind to those that were part of our life.

I have no regrets in life, so I live at peace with myself. Those that feel I’ve ever wronged them, will be the ones that have to live with that. You can never give what you don’t have, and I have no hate for anyone. I feel sorry for those that don’t measure the consequences of their actions, and when there times comes they are going to wish they to have one more chance, more time, to undo the bad things they did in their life to others.

Unlike they say above, in my opinion, people do need to grow up, so they can grow old with dignity and grace, and especially with no dying regrets.

I never say, may GOD punish them. I always say, may GOD forgive them.

A TRUE EYE OPENER! ✨

A friend came to my house for coffee, we sat down and talked about life. After a while I interrupted the conversation and said to him, ′′I’m going to wash the dishes, I’ll be right back.”

He looked at me like I told him he was going to build a spaceship. So he said to me with admiration and a little stumped, ′′Glad you help your wife, I rarely help mine because when I do she never thank me. Last week I washed the floor and she didn’t even tell me thank you.”

I sat back down with him again and explained to him that I don’t ′′help′′ my wife. Actually, my wife doesn’t need help, she needs a partner, a teammate. I’m her home partner… and due to that, all functions are divided, which is not “help” with household chores.

I don’t “help” my wife clean the house, because I also live in it and I need to clean it too.

I don’t “help” my wife cook, because I also want to eat and I need to cook too.

I don’t “help” her washing dishes after eating, because I use these dishes too.

I don’t “help” my wife with kids, because they are mine too and it’s my duty to be a father.

I don’t “help” my wife wash, extend, fold, and put away laundry, because it’s mine and my kids too.

I don’t give a “helping hand” at home, I’m part of it.

Then with respect I asked my friend when was the last time after his wife finished cleaning the house, doing laundry, changing the bed sheets, bathing the kids, cooking, organizing, etc… and did he say: “thank you?”

I mean a real thank you, like, “Wow, baby!! You’re amazing!!"

Does this all seem absurd? Does it sound weird to you? When, once in your life, you cleaned the floor, you expected at least an excellence award with great glory… why? Haven’t you ever thought about that?

Maybe, because for you, macho culture taught you that everything is a woman’s task.

Maybe you’ve been taught that all this should be done without you having to move a finger.

So praise her as you would like to be praised, likewise, with the same intensity. Hold her hand and behave like a true companion, and assume your part, don’t behave like a guest who simply comes to eat, sleep, shower and satisfy sexual needs… feel at home, in your home.

Change in our society begins in our homes, teaching our children the true sense of fellowship!

A Test for immunity - I’ve just learned it’s a blood test - I think this is a next best strategy.

The video guide is from 2020, some are still applicable, but you can’t always live like in a bubble… boosting and strengthening immunity is also important…

I watched Space Sweepers on Saturday and I really do not want to witness or live on this planet with such system and poor life quality… we are nearing towards self destruction, perhaps it’s a natural sequence… of all of it… dinosaurs didn’t live forever… not that I want to sound pessimistic, but as I’m aging I see life on planet earth changing as well… population, progress evolution… machines will take over… think of matrix :rofl:

I’ll check it out! Tx.

You remember this show right? Dumb, & Dumber :wink:

Well! Let me spell out the irl scenario.
A walks up to B, and ask, when’s the bus :bus: coming?
B turns and says, it’s coming now, I looked it up on the app.
Who do you think is dumb? Answer -> B :rofl:
Who do you think is dumber? Answer -> B :rofl:
Do you know why? We rely so much on technology, we don’t even know anyone’s telephone number anymore, & barely our own telephone number. We need an app for everything, that’s what the latest in technology is doing to every single one of us. :skull_and_crossbones: :wilted_flower: :neutral_face:

I watched a video of a new life being birthed, and had these thoughts :speech_balloon: :thought_balloon: :speech_balloon: what if where we were, was so heavenly, or hellish, is the cause for the different types of birthing experience? :thinking: Length of labor. :thinking: Properly, or improperly positioned fetus. :thinking: Babies who holler like they’ve just been robbed. :rofl: :thinking:Other babies who seem oblivious to entering the world, and are as mellow as the baby birthed in this video. :blush: :blush:
:thinking: :thought_balloon: :speech_balloon: :thought_balloon: Here’s another, what if the reason we cling to life so zestily while young, is because of where we left behind? :rofl:
:thought_balloon::speech_balloon::thought_balloon: Where we escaped? :thinking: :rofl:
:joy: These are questions that spring to mind, from watching all these immortal dramas, and shows.

The sad truth of advancement, you are so right, as a baby boomer I kept small notebook with addresses, phone numbers and Bday’s dates… I have to google today a lot… now where do we keep our “tons” of passwords safe, lmao :hushed::grimacing:! - And should we run out of battery or electricity, what then… we are lost souls… as you said even our phone numbers get at time a bit wiggly… :thinking:

I used to remember phone numbers of family and friends, why not anymore, you tell me, cause I do NOT get to see them (the numbers), I just click on the name or icon on a app… we are getting somehow dumber, even with calculating in head… but some folks use their fingers though, I’ve never learnt this method, I only used my brain, pen and pencil… back then there were no calculators in classroom… Calculators were at work though.

Now check the Japanese art of doing multiplication… could you do this… so complicated… :rofl:


and the Chinese seems to be easier:
