Create Your Life

I know I don't blog as much as I use to.  I have all of these ideas in my head, but by the time I get to a computer, the creativity is gone.  I hope I still have people out there that read this :)

I keep hearing people complaining that life has dealt them a raw deal.  The poor me, spoiled American attitude is just not my style.  Would I like to be comfortable financially without having to really work for it?  No, not me.  I believe in working hard for what you have.  Do I complain sometimes, YES.  But not because I expect life to hand me things without the hard work that comes with it.

My husband and I work very hard for what we have, and do not blame others, or the government for our misfortunes.  Most of the time, the things that come our way, are our own doing.  Cause and effect . Do we wish things were easier?  Yes, its human nature to want things.  Until we change our ways as human beings, we will not be happy in life, because we are always wanting more, and until we get more more more, we are miserable creatures.

Create a different you.....
Think positive
Work hard
Be grateful for what you already have
Stop looking for the greener grass (water your own lawn)
Spend wisely.
Change your habits

If you don't like the way your life is going, change directions.  That curve ball that life just threw your way.....That was meant to wake you up.

I do not believe our lives are predetermined.  I believe we are in control of what the future holds for us.  Come from a bad back ground? Have a better future.  Is that road you are traveling down too bumpy for you, lay down the pavement and find a better future.

Don't believe that life owes you.  You owe life.  Volunteer, do things for other people.  Change, and recreate your way of thinking. Until you decide to create your own life, the fate of it is in the hands of the people you put it in.

I would love for things to be a little easier, but such is life.  We do what we can, and live within our means.  When we can learn to do that, maybe we will truly be at peace.
