The Ark

Whatever floats your boat...

I just updated my facebook status to "hates wshing he was somewhere else". The first response I got is from someone suggesting I settle where I am and think about moving later. Is that how this works?

See I keep meeting people who all had high hopes and dreams but the every day has weighed them down. Now all those dreams are just what they use to think about what-might-have-been. In fact the person telling me to settle down on facebook is a prime example of someone who is stuck in a rut.

Even the word "settle" freaks me out.

Is this normal?

I have known plenty of people who talk about dreams and goals, but thats all they do is talk, no action. They are full of excuses and shoulda, coulda, woulda's.
Don't you settle Monkey!

MOTC got some sage words. I'm liken it.

Happiness is a warm place to $h!t.

Some of my favorite words of wisdom are "You get what you settle for." Provided to the world by the screenwriters of Thelma and Louise. Ever since I heard that line, I use it often to evaluate my life. Is this what I want? If the answer is no, then I don't settle for it. I get everything I want that way.

People say I'm crazy doing what I'm doing,
Well they give me all kinds of warnings to save me from ruin,
When I say that I'm o.k. they look at me kind of strange,
Surely your not happy now you no longer play the game,

People say I'm lazy dreaming my life away,
Well they give me all kinds of advice designed to enlighten me,
When I tell that I'm doing Fine watching shadows on the wall,
Don't you miss the big time boy you're no longer on the ball?

I'm just sitting here watching the wheels go round and round,
I really love to watch them roll,
No longer riding on the merry-go-round,
I just had to let it go,

People asking questions lost in confusion,
Well I tell them there's no problem,
Only solutions,
Well they shake their heads and they look at me as if I've lost my mind,
I tell them there's no hurry...
I'm just sitting here doing time,

I'm just sitting here watching the wheels go round and round,
I really love to watch them roll,
No longer riding on the merry-go-round,
I just had to let it go.

be indigenous to now... to me settling means staying the same. change should always be your olnly constant. i think we're all lost. and that's ok.

nevermind. I just consulted my Alice in Wonderland pocket bible. It said:

"Begin at the beginning and go on till you come to the end: then stop"

so i'd just go on ahead and to that and you should be golden.
