2 Things

January 20, 2012


Coudnt have said it better myself....
There is no one in this world that is perfect. In fact there is NOTHING in this world that is perfect. Nothing in this life is free, you have to work for everything.

The things that make us happy might be right in front of our faces... example, going out for a night with my friends, calling my mom and dad on the ride home from work, taking a vacation, writing a letter, giving a gift to my godchild. These are things that have instant gratification. When the act is made, the happiness is felt.

There are also things that make us happy that might not seem so great "all the time" but the outcome, the pit stops in the middle and the start up are the happy times... example, I knew getting my Masters would make me happy. I was all gung hoe in the beginning, the middle had its extreme lows and extreme highs and the end... well, there was NOTHING like the feeling of passing that final Thesis Review and portfolio submission. If it didnt make me happy to be doing it, I would have never been able to do it all those years. Same goes for staying late at work, doing house cleaning, going for a really long car ride, spending money on "stuff" that is necessary... all of these things might totally SUCK while in the act, but there is a benefit and a happiness in the end. A bit of satisfaction.

We have to work at and earn everything that makes us happy in life... love, respect, honor, trust, confidence, faith, acceptance, integrity, responsibility... and the list goes on.

If it makes you HAPPY... do it... if it dosent... than DONT.

This pic was posted on my FaceBook page today, someone who reads my blog and knows about my "no excuses" attitude thought it would be right up my alley... it sure was.
