Three Things In Life Challenge

Fandango’s Provocative Question today is

If there are only three things in life that truly matter, what do you think they are and why did you choose those three?
Interesting thought processes here at Pensitivity101.
If I could only choose three, I guess they’d be:

Be true to yourself.
If you lose track of the person you are by pretending to be something you’re not to please other people, you can lose your identity. There is no shame in asking for help or advice when you’re unsure rather than blather on and get yourself into an even bigger mess.

Honesty, integrity, trust and loyalty.
I always club these together, especially when it comes to relationships. It doesn’t matter if it is as an employee, an employer, a partner/spouse, or friendship. There is nothing worse than betrayal by the one person you thought you could rely on.

Patience and kindness.
Throughout our lives our patience will be tried by a host of things as well as people, especially elderly friends or relatives in poor health. It costs nothing to be kind.
If you don’t have something nice to say about someone, keep quiet.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    Well said Di.

  2. You are a wise woman! That keeping quiet when there’s nothing good you have to say is a tough habit to learn. I’ve never bested it yet, but I’m trying to be more compassionate towards myself when I do it, because in some ways I can’t help it I suppose. Practice makes perfect. 😉 Wonderful traits you chose!

    Very sound choices and I like the way you bundled some attributes.

    I love your choices. It costs nothing to be kind and the rewards are wonderful.
