Let’s Think (Day 9)

Lets Think! (Day 9)
Posted by Project FireStarter on April 24, 2013

Hey Firestarters!

I hope you all are having a great day! My days have been going by really fast since I graduated, it’s gotten to the point where i forget if it’s Wednesday or Saturday haha.

Lets Think About…

Life is so short, so why do we do so many things that we don’t like? We are estimated to live to about 80 years old in America, that may seem like a long time to some but time really flies. It feels like just yesterday I was a ten year old little kid with a chili bowl hair cut and some overalls, and now I’m almost an adult about to make an impact on the world. The clocks ticking, are you using this time on earth to do something you love? Or are you living for something you dread?

Lets start to say ‘Why Not‘ to things instead of ’I Can’t‘ don’t let anyone or anything stop you from what makes you happy.

If thats working at a different place, try to work there.

Playing golf, go play a couple of holes.

Watching price is right and eating puff cheetos, theres probably a marathon on somewhere on TV.

For me it’s

Independence, A secure future for my education, and Blogging. I graduated high school, have the availability to the college I really want to go to and I have all the time in the world to work on the blog!

Do what makes you happy, don’t wait for happiness to fall into you’re lap, go get it.


I hope you enjoyed this entry! Leave a ‘ Like’ or a ’Comment’ if you want to share what makes you happy or if you have any suggestions for future posts!

Have an amazing, fulfilling day everyone! Stay happy and smile more!
When I turned ’50’, I was very depressed and had a hard time with the fact that, in all probability, my life was more than half over. What did I have to show for it? I did have 3 beautiful daughters and, at that time, 3 lovely grandchildren. I also had a body that was starting to fall apart from 32 years of hard labor, overtime, and working jobs that I didn’t want to work, but had to. I couldn’t think of anything other than the above mentioned and my wonderful hubby, to show for it.
Admittedly, I was a workaholic. I didn’t know any other way. I did learn to think of things that were important to me like spending more time with my family, spend more time in Nature, have fun and learn to laugh.
It was a process and sometimes I still feel pulled between things I have to do and don’t like and simple things I love to do. I have learned that the dishes will still be there waiting to be put into the dishwasher, the lint on the floor will still be there waiting to be swept, the dust will still be there waiting to be dusted, and the cobwebs will still be there waiting to be removed.
In the meantime, there are kisses to be given and received, hugs to be given and received, laughter to be heard and laughter to join in. So many little things that I have found since I have slowed down a bit.

  1. Well said! I wish when I left school someone had told me to pursue my dreams instead of thinking about providing first. Life really is too short to not pay attention to that which is really important to your soul
