I Don’t Want To Live Someone Else’s Dream!

January 28th, 2018 No comments

Far too often we seemed to become obsessed with the life of another human being. We become fascinated by what they do and who they may be associated with. It seems we will go to any length to somehow be attached to their life.

I was once guilty of this; going out of my way to seek out and track down best-selling authors. I wanted to be them. I wanted to live their life and associate with who they associated with. It became an obsession. I didn’t sleep. I kept on coming up with the next plan of how I would Wow! them or catch their attention.

Ultimately, all of my efforts fell flat on their face and I didn’t really become part of any new circles. I didn’t create any lasting friendships that would see me through the hard times. I wasted a lot of time and I wasted a lot of my feelings. I thought I would fit in with them and I thought their life would become my life. So wrong was I.

And at the end of the day I learned that I don’t want to live someone else’s dream. The only dreams I have are my dreams; the day-to-day activities that make me happy. Maybe today what I am doing is not the most extravagant but it is still my day and what I am doing today is important. It’s worthwhile. It means something.

Try not to get swept away in the dreams and ambitions of others. It often doesn’t amount to much.

It’d be great to hear from you,

Another Day To Go Get What I Want

January 7th, 2018 No comments

I wake up feeling pretty good. I just worked the whole week and the weekend is mine to do what I want with it.
I get to go out in a car and traverse surrounding cities and the town I live in.

If I set my mind to driving carefully it should be a good day because in every store I go to I can be pretty much guaranteed that what I am looking for is there. Have you ever thought about that fact? That it’s all pretty much there?! I think it’s unbelievable. A lot of people have to execute a lot of actions for that to be true.

Truly amazing when human beings put their minds together toward a common and established goal.

I try to make a mental note every day to not take this for granted, to be grateful even if it’s -20 degrees without a wind chill!

I’m still a bit confused though…how can I make my life better or improve my life?

It’d be great to hear from you,
