Blogging Boomers’ Blog Carnival, April Fool’s Day Edition

by midlifecrisisqueen on April 1, 2012

Coming off one of the worst weeks of my entire life, April Fool’s Day seems somehow appropriate about now.  If you cannot find the humor in just about every crazy experience life decides to throw at you, it’s all just that much more difficult to bear.

Learning how to ask for help is the lesson we must all learn as we age.  Life does NOT have to be a do-it-yourself job.   Self-compassion is a good place to start, then add other loving companions.  Now you are ready for the many difficult challenges ahead!

Katie Foster of Arabian Tales took a weekend excursion from Dubai to Musandam, Oman with friends.  Musandam is located on the tip of the Arabian Peninsula at the strategically important Straits of Hormuz that separates the Arabian Gulf and the Gulf of Oman, a mere 45 km (28 miles) from Iran.  She never imagined she would meet playful camels along the way!

Feelings of lack of control during illness throws most of us off.  This has been my personal challenge while dealing with an intractable disease like Chronic Fatigue Syndrome in the past seven years.
