On plane. Short post from phone.
A very wise and dearly loved man used to tell a young and broke married couple, “if all you have in the world is one thin dime, spend a nickel on a lily.”
Meaning? Spend a little money on beauty. Spend a little on experiences. Spend a little on each other.
In my recent paradigm shift, I have decided I want to have experiences, not things. So I sold a very expensive (to me) long arm quilt machine. I have been using those funds to experience life and people a bit more.
I share all of this from a first class seat on my flight back to DFW. After the inbound flight on Thursday with a seat mate who knew no airline boundaries or etiquitte, when the opportunity arose to upgrade for my return flight, I spent my nickel for a lily. Happily so.
I am finally giving my body the best life has to offer, we shall consider this expenditure an extension of this endeavor.
Light and Love,
