Everything in moderation, my dear grandmother always said.....and that is how I roll.
It was good sound advise that echoed through my childhood home. My parents lived it. Their parents lived it. I am certain generations before, lived it. And through their actions, their lifestyle and behavior, it was ingrained upon my sisters and I. Anything in excess is sure to bring unwanted consequences.
Sweets are dandy, but too much will only result (in the least) in an upset stomach. It's alright to unwind with a class of wine or a good stiff drink, to loosen up a bit (at a party) with a drink or two, and most celebrations just don't feel complete without that special toast. But too much alcohol will (in the least) leave you feeling sick. That expensive car, the enormous house and that huge diamond ring are all so very nice, but they also draw much unwanted attention. And, if you haven't the means to pay for and maintain them, if you've bought them on credit, they can be a big bad burden.
Simplicity and appreciation of when I have (had) enough are key to my keeping everything in moderation.
Thank you for stopping by
Have a beautiful day
