I've learned many things during this year I turned 60. Many important things. I must admit that I try to learn something new often, which can be a challenge that sometimes frustrates me. I keep struggling with the ever changing world of computers - we upgraded to a Mac recently. I had to change how I do things and it was hard at first, but I am so glad to have this internet machine because I am no longer haunted by breakdowns!
I also learned from a belligerent blogger that no one can convince you to their way of believing simply by arguing their point with you. A person recently tried and got very belligerent when they didn't succeed. We all should be respected for our beliefs and not belittled until we give in to another's way of thinking - one convinced against their will remains the same opinion still.
Don't expect people, even friends to echo your own strongly held convictions. We are not clones. We claim to want personal freedoms but only surround ourselves with comfortable people who don't challenge us.
End of rant. :-)
