As I met my half century, I am finding it is more important to listen than to talk, to hug more often, share smiles and laughter. To take that phone call even when you are **almost** ready to call it a night. To have a shoulder to share with others. The lord will make sure you have one when you need it.
I have met many people, and find most people have interesting stories. I believe, like Paul Harvey, that there IS "the rest of the story." It is what makes us meet life with our unique outlook, and share that outlook and logic with others.
My son says I have way more logical thinking than most women (probably a good thing since we relate well to each other), but it can be frustrating for people who do not look at life logically. Granted, the Spirit's promptings are often NOT logical, but those I can feel.
I am probably a lot harder on myself than I need to be, but the moderating influence of another viewpoint is not there at this time. I am patient and tolerant with others, but realize change is a personal choice we cannot make for others. (it took many years to realize that one!!)
At this time I have finally decided to be patient. When that person who already has a testimony, is active and going to the temple is seeking one who has the same, I am sure things will click. I have found that the best things in life for ME are the ones that I am surprised by.
