Spidey’s Serene Sunday – Part 391 – Another Year Older


“Wisdom can be found in the most unexpected places.”

Ritu Bhathal

Thank you, Spidey, for giving me a chance to use my own quote, today!

It is the day after my 47th birthday, and I wonder whether I have gained any more wisdom with the addition of that extra year.

Well, I was on good old Facebook, and there was one of those quizzes where it chucks random statements or facts out, allegedly about you.

Usually, they are just silly, but once in a while they throw you something to think upon.

This was apparently a lesson I have learned from the past year.

And, oh my goodness, what truth!

It takes a while, I think that for this to register in our minds, but it’s true that over the last couple of years, I have realised that I am who I am, and I am a good person.

We all have traits that may not be liked by everyone, but when I take everything into account, I am happy with me.

I am happy with who I am.

I am happy with how I live my life.

I am happy with my thoughts and opinions.

I am happy with my preferences.

I am happy with my grey hair.

I am happy even with a little extra weight on myself, right now.

And there will always be people out there with toxic opinions.

But I really don’t care!

And that. is the wisdom I gleaned from a Facebook Quiz, yesterday!

So, are you able to accept who you are and live in peace with yourself?


Wishing you a wonderfully peaceful Sunday, Peeps!

    Wisdom comes with experience, acceptance and the willingness to remain open to new things.

    This is terrific – there is so much wrong with our world today – much of which is seemingly out of our control…so why not focus on what is good in our lives and appreciate it…

    It took me a while for me to be happy in my skin, but I’m at the point now where I really don’t care if people dislike me, it has no bearing on my life.
    I’m really happy, I have a wonderful husband and I am running my own business which has boosted my confidence immensely.
    You are amazing ritu, keep being you x

      Thank you my darling friend, Lucy 🥰
      As long as we accept ourselves and are happy in ourselves, our lives are 100% better, aren’t they? 🥰🥰

    In my opinion, it is a life-long process to discover who you are or who you can be, and to reveal misunderstandings about yourself and life. So, yes, I am very content with who I have become to this day. I am aware of how far I have come but I am also aware that this is only another small step on the road. That is what I love about life, you never stop inventing yourself new and growing out of your shell.
