Living Your Own Life.....
At times it can be rather confusing when people don't seem to understand that living life means to actually go out and do just that. It isn’t about worrying about what others are doing, being bitter over things you cannot change, or what someone else may or may not have said or done.
For myself, I do not have much use for busybodies who feel its ok to stalk your life. Nor do I give them my time, because they don’t matter, not to me or the people around me.Its almost creepy the way some people will do that, and I have a hard time finding my sympathy for people who are really so twisted in the head that think that type of behavior is ok.
I am always amazed by how much time people will waste trying to find out what someone else is up to. Is their life better? Is it worse? Do they have something you don’t have? When I hear about people who do this it makes me laugh and feel sorry for them at the same time. I have to laugh because I am just living my life, one day one step at a time just like the majority of us all. There is nothing secret about my life, for the past two years its pretty much been an open book. Sure there are things I don’t put out there but there is a lot I do. The same goes for the people many seem to follow. Are they funny? Sure sometimes, but living vicariously through someone else isn’t living. It doesn’t add to the quality of the life you have.
What I find sad is that anyone with half a brain, could give, importance into needing to know what someone else is doing. Unless you're a friend or acquaintance, why bother? Yet as a society we all seem to do that, following the tweets of the stars or other people. We are training ourselves to be nosey, but in doing this do we actually gain anything from the process? Other than finding something new to gossip about which 9 out of 10 times you don’t have enough information to actually pass along as useful information.
As a mom, grandma, daughter and friend I’ve learned the value of not sticking my nose where it doesn’t belong. That means respecting my friends privacy, and lives as well as my families. If you think about it life is so short, so why waste it? Why let what someone else says or does make you nuts ? Why give it value when it will never affect your own world or life.
In today's world if we don’t teach our kids the value of the here and now, we are letting them buy into believing its important to want what the Jones have. We are in short teaching them that what they have isn’t enough anymore. The TV is filled with reality shows, some good some bad. Most are scripted in advance so it isn’t real, reality. Instead of watching someone elses life, its time to start living your own.Its time to find what makes you happy in your own life and do that. Embrace what you have. At the end of the day, it doesn’t matter what the Kardashians, Selena Gomez, or even your next door neighbor is doing with their lives, what matters is what you're doing with your life. What matters is finding your dreams and focusing on them instead of everyone else.
Its More then Just a Dream
- As a recently married 46 year old I am in the process of finishing my degree. Working to take care of my family and live my life.Blogging, working, writing, and chugging along like most of us. Who am I ? I am you, I am me, I am your mother, friend, the best and worst that we each have inside of us. I am a different perspective and find myself fascinated by the interesting moments in life.
