Maya Angelou's interview by Oprah

Just had to share this with all my new friends here...


DON'T BREAK THE ELASTIC

Maya Angelou was interviewed by Oprah on her 70+ birthday. Maya really is a marvel who has led quite an interesting and exciting life. Oprah asked her what she thought of growing older. And, there on television, she said it was "exciting". Regarding body changes, she said there were many, occurring every day...like her breasts. They seem to be in a race to see which will reach her waist, first. The audience laughed so hard they cried. She is such a simple and honest woman, with so much wisdom in her words.

"I've learned that no matter what happens, or how bad it seems today, life does go on, and it will be better tomorrow.

I've learned that you can tell a lot about a person by the way he/she handles these three things: a rainy day, lost luggage, and tangled Christmas tree lights.

I've learned that regardless of your relationship with your parents, you'll miss them when they're gone from your life.

I've learned that making a "living" is not the same thing as making a "life."

I've learned that life sometimes gives you a second chance.

I've learned that you shouldn't go through life with a catcher's mitt on both hands; you need to be able to throw something back.

I've learned that whenever I decide something with an open heart, I usually make the right decision.

I've learned that even when I have pains, I don't have to be one.

I've learned that every day you should reach out and touch someone. People love a warm hug, or just a friendly pat on the back.

I've learned that I still have a lot to learn.

I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel."

Please send this to five phenomenal people today. If you do, something good will happen: you will boost another person's self-esteem. If you don't...the elastic will break and your underwear will fall down around your ankles.

Spreading smiles is always a welcome way to exercise your face.

jsny, yuck! you need to remember, many of us are women over 40, we are the ones telling you to make sure you underwear is clean in case you are in an accident. And, I don't think you have the saggy breast problem either, you cute young man!

in case i'm in an accident, the world will see me in my birthday suit, and hopefully not my death suit too. =) that was a joke. but honestly, i just don't like wearing it, it "bunches" up "things" if you know what i mean ;-) there is nothing worse than tucking in a shirt and experiencing the war of wrinkles b/w my undies and pants. eventually they fight their way up to my butt, and i don't like that feeling.

TMI, sorry.
