    Fireside Chats: MilestonesDid you know that February is Spunky Old Broads month? I hadn't until two years ago when a friend -- Claire LeSage -- told me about it. I wrote a post on it -- Spunky Old Broads -- but that one wasn't about aging. This one is, and it's on my mind...

    Happy 100 Bday to your mom!!! I bet she has stories we all would love!!! (Wish I had, had the foresight to ask my grandparents for their stories). 30 was my dreaded milestone and what spurred me into life long learning and student loans that just wont go away! hee hee. The only one in my circle and family to take nerd and geek it out. LOL
    Proud to be a Spunky Old Broad (in my own mind anyway! LOL) Great post Susan!!

    Aww, I love this post, @Susan Rooks. I remember turning 16 - sweet sixteen wasn't me, though. I didn't get into trouble but I was a bratty had to be in the "in-crowd" teenager. Turning 30 was major for me. I got a divorce, had surgery and my father passed away when I was in the hospital. Two years later, I moved to South Florida. After that, I had many life changing events but I managed to keep moving forward. Happy 100th Birthday Marcia Rooks!

I also agree with the following: "All of those milestones make us who we are today. Each set us on a path we couldn't have seen clearly then, even if we had mapped it out, debated the pros and cons of action plans,or created a timeline of dates for accomplishments."

    The 21st Century should be the Century of Life, just as the 20th Century was the Century of Death. We are nearly 20 years into this century and we are still having trouble bringing everyone into the 21st Century. This buzz is simply buzzing with life and deserves to be called 21st Century. Yes I know that one of the things that you miss is your late father, but all fathers want to be proud of their daughters and see them full of life - you have done your father proud Fatima - and you have honored his legacy.

    Even in pre school I've tried to teach children "We can laugh about a lot of things. Let's do! We don't laugh AT each other, it's just funny :-) " Some kids come from families who (I think from generations on) feel treated as if they are less than others. Those kids really need it to know people can laugh about you without negative meaning.
    Good reminder Graham!

    @Graham๐Ÿ Edwards - there is a saying in my family 'it is better to laugh than cry', basically the premises is that if you laugh about an upsetting situation you are likely to sit down and strategise a good solution rather than feeling sorry for yourself!

    Welcoming surprise is intelligent, focusing on what worked is practical, happenings create a colourful existence, being a serious dude is funny, and John Lennon sang about the rest. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vjWebKavfuI

    If people actually get close enough for me to hear them tell me "Manjit, give up your splendid isolation and join the real world" - that is the time I try not to laugh but welcome surprise and the whole amusing cycle begins again.

    If I do this for a several decades I will die laughing.

    So, you are a poet as well dear @Fatima Williams and a "moving" one too.
    I can see in the poem an indirect reference to your triad of energy-people-place.
    You are a great honor as much as you honor all of us to be members of the beBee society. You spread love as much your words spread pure honey. Shared

    @๐Ÿ Fatima Williams, some people never get to experience love, or have a taste of their dreams, as they don't make it over the edge of 17. I have loved many, but, have truly only been IN love twice in my life and feel blessed to have experienced the feeling. It wasn't enough to avoid the deep-cutting excruciating pain of the thorns that accompanied those emotions, however. You have to take the thorns with the roses.

    #13 I remember that Buzz very much @Ali Anani and did not comment at that time because what how I felt about love at that time.
    And there were some great comments on that buzz.I must revisit and read that.
    A mothers love and a brother/sister love cannot be compared to love between two people.
    I seemed to have loved the person more than everything else at one time and then forgot that I was leaving my world behind.

    So I think as Lisa very beautifully says "to have our individuality, space and be with a person who has similar needs and who can love me unconditionally. I think I may have just found him. And pretty excited and scared at the same time.

    Nice buzz Fatima. I am of the persuasion that true love can indeed conquer all. But true love is also a two way street, which is absolutely essential for a long-term relationship to last and blossom. Each person must go the extra mile for the other and put the other person above themselves. Moreover, the flipside of the fear to fall in love again, is the fear of being alone for the rest of your life. I think the former overrides the latter. Thanks for a good read and keep buzzing in 2017 ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ๐ŸโœŒ๏ธ๏ธ

Love my hubbie but he's not a hands on the beach kind of guy... that's OK, I love walking alone. @๐Ÿ Fatima Williams, I think we all crave love and need it but the person we love should not be our entire existence. I find it healthy to have our individuality, space and be with a person who has similar needs. I don't want a puppy following me around but I am thankful I have a person who seems to love me unconditionally and respects my space as I do his too. Your poem above is beautiful, not sure I could get my husband to repeat that. Thanks, I find this topic so important. Sometimes people can be together so long they may take each other for granted, reminders are good too. Let your brain guide you and then your heart will melt and so will 'his.' Close

    This is a challenging post dear@๐Ÿ Fatima Williams. You asked "Love isn't Enough ! Anyone care to agree or disagree with me".
    You remind me of my own buzz on "I Love You- What Does it Mean"?
    https://www.bebee.com/producer/@ali-anani/i-love-you-what-does-it-mean
    This buzz generated 168 comments. Ideas on the meaning of love showed a wide spread. So, for me to answer your challenging question I need first to know what love means to you. Love without action isn't love. To love is to give willingly. A mother who loves her kid is willing to sacrifice and do all it can for the kid. Does love have a hierarchy of different levels? If so, only the top level is genuine love.
    I shared your buzz and joined your hive.
    I end by saying I love your writing. I am acting on my love as you can see.

    I completely agree with the arranged marriage pathway. I have seen and had conversations with most of the older generation and a few of my own friends happily married.
    But I have also seen my parents and some of my friends parents that had this love which is so magical
    I see there is magic both ways but I'm sure both are scary if the wrong spell is cast !
    Thank you for a thought provoking comment.

    Mutual6 Good for you. You don't owe me an explanation, we haven't connected beyond profiles. Still I will read all that you share :) simply because it is here to read.
    I am curious . Why reinforce with statements that you love those around you, those you love already know, they have moved ahead to the mutual experience. Fear is normal, it happens to everyone, but why does it surface again and again? Is it insecurity linked with love?
    Why must you explain the joy of giving? You have given a lot, those who know just know. Those who take you for granted can't be changed without am affirmation of self.
    I hope you don't get offended, I'm expressing what I believe.
    Another thought, why be at the mercy of opinion? Opinions can be changed instantly, you have all the means to do it. Change opinions and teach people to look beyond their shallow view of you, this is rooted in how you look at yourself

    Would you rather have unrequited love, love that is never reciprocated or never spoken as love to your beloved?

    This is a legitimate choice. One either goes all in or they don't. There are people in this world who did not and I am one of them. That kind of hurt is softened by reason and my reason was simple - not basing my life around a romantic decision. That is why the pathway I took was an arranged marriage. The roots I trusted in where my family and over 30 years that trust has born fruit.

    Now imagine if I had taken the other fork in the road and trusted solely on my feelings. Since there was nothing good that would come from that pathway, the most loving thing one can do is to let that person go, never revealing what was in my heart.

    Today there are two sets of lives that are both successful in their respective roots. It was duly considered and based on pragmatic decision to be best course and way. Hurt on the front end so there could be happiness on the back end - but of course this is no guarantee. There is no guarantee that happiness cannot be stolen from us by the vagaries and twists and turns of life, but there is an improved chance of weighing up life and recognizing the odds. This is not possibility thinking, it is probability thinking.I took the right road, ensuring head was not greater than heart but that heart was not greater than head either.

    Love as a value judgement can be quite a horrible thing, but as a compass, it is altogether a different proposition. Even if you feel alone in that decision, the spirit of your father that is within you amounts to recollections of how he would see this. His legacy is now your legacy to live but the choices of that life are entirely yours. Nothing anyone can say, changes the relationship you personally have between the flow between your head and heart. Who knows what tomorrow brings but it is our vision to make.

    I believe in giving we receive but that I don't see is applied in love between a man and a woman.
    The fear is of the unknown that is to come and not with the self. I've seen the most passionate couple separate and the most indifferent couples stick together.

    You are already in love with a definition of love.Is this your understanding of love? I'm sure there is a lot more because your comments and posts reflect the fact that you think a lot about it.

    Love yourself more, understand yourself more, be deep in your imaginings of self, with each dive come out with something to celebrate.

    Feelings and thoughts are so often incompatible, @๐Ÿ Fatima Williams. Remember that the only antidote to fear is love.

    Whether a relationship will work out often is not down to love alone and there is not a piece of advice in the world that can actually help anyone navigate the journey. Sometimes the hands clap for a limited run engagement and sometimes the hands clap for longer than anyone could ever foresee.

    I feel that what matters is whether two people decide to stick together and then affirm that decision time and time and time again. The commitment to that choice is what overcomes the absolute certainty that life will eventually make love hard.

    You described exactly what I think needs to happen - the words of love and joy and companionship are said back and forth as often as possible. Thereby exchange of the words of love cements the feelings into thoughts.

    #75 Nope. I was there for the 1995 season. Amazing El Ninio year. I rented a 2-bedroom apartment and had 3 roommates. Although we didn't get snowed in, I have a picture of the snow bank outside of one of our windows -- snow was above our second floor unit. One night it dumped 3-1/2 feet of fresh powder.

    At the main lodge -- the third floor sun deck turned into a first floor sun deck, the service guys had to dig out the first floor entrance!

    #63 Sweet memories; my stepfather loved Jameson and always kept a bottle on hand. I learned to 'mix' his drinks by the time I was 10. (that would be Jameson on the rocks, not a difficult drink to make, but I still remember; it was 3 ice cubes, and two shot glasses of whisky, swirl to chill :-) ). He let me take a sip one time, that's all it took for a 10-year-old! It tasted nothing like the Iced Tea I expected!! But I still remember the hearty laugh my facial expression received. Now I love an occasional whisky on the rocks; I think it's a nostalgia thing.

    I love the random thoughts that you shared here @Donna-Luisa Eversley. Sometimes, the random thoughts can be the best fuel for our fire.

    Some days it is difficult to accept that there are things we can't control. That's why it is important to enact our gift of choice; especially when the out of control things can seem overwhelming.

    It's taken me a while ton fully grasp the concept but I am better at it now. Each day is an opportunity to exercise our ability to choose - to decide whether we will make the best of a bad day or make the worst of it.

    #20 @Sara Jacobovici, thank you ..wow, when I read this, you got the weepy emotional blast in my eyes ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ˜˜ ...it is the truth of music and rythmn ..I am happy it resonates with you so much. As soon as I draw on the music my entire person responds. It is like a conductor bringing the sounds into a crescendo. Controlling emotions need that understanding of self to create harmony for self.

    @Donna-Luisa Eversley a very insightful post. It is only ourselves who can control our destiny and we are each destined for greatness in some way, but only if we are able to prevent fear, greed, or opinion to veer us off our path.

    I really like this comment Ken. Sometimes you just can't play it safe, you need some adventure, to try new things, to speak out when things go awry. For now it is still some of the greatest freedoms and gifts we have; free will and free speach. The Internet has given us the ability to reach a tremendous audience and as long as we stay tactful and factual great things can be accomplished. Ain't no mountain high enough! Ain't no valley low enough! #28

    #7 Yep, have fun - use a beBee graphic from the site. I just mentioned you on another example - he stuck a little more to the core format, but used his own actual job title. This was just a quick test - see what folks said

    Do you mean creating one? I can't claim the Ambassador label yet, but I could create a graphic similar to this as long as there's no objection to me putting the BE logo on it.#6

    @Mike Rana - The brand graphic you saw on LI is a brand persona. Optimized for mass appeal. But it is rather easy to run with the idea like I did.

    Would like to see you take a shot at it. Now that I think about it, I should put this at the bottom of my buzzes...
