I arise in the morning torn between a desire to improve the world and a desire to enjoy the world. This makes it hard to plan the day. ~Elwyn Brooks White
Gosh, with so many things to tend to in life, it can be difficult to get priorities straight at times! Through the years, priorities tend to change! Whilst young, having fun tends to take on front-center stage and if there is anything that is not fun, well it just isn’t worth the time of day! That is what made it so tough to sit still in school and pay any attention to all the clamber to “get good grades” and do your homework! My thoughts on history as a lad was just that..”it’s history, it already happened so there is nothing that I can do about it so why study it!?”
So much changes as you go through the years, mainly your perspective and what becomes important to you through time. All of the sudden the things that mom and dad and adults were emphasizing start making more sense and you some to realize that they were not so dumb after all! Did you ever notice how the “nerds” in school that were not so “cool” all of a sudden become cool in your adult years, and the “cool kids” from school may be sort of left behind? The roles tend to reverse entirely! Obla-dee Obla-dah!
I like what Elwyn White said in the quote above! I would just like to ask, why not have it all? Why not change the world and enjoy doing it along the way. Really, in everything you do, you can have a ball doing it! If making your world a better place is what you want, than, as you strive or work towards doing it, you can have a great time! Work doesn’t always have to be a “four-letter-word” , it can be tremendous fun and it usually brings a greater income if that is what you make of it!
So have a blast along the way! Don’t allow your life to become “blah”. Make it obla-dee obla-dah exciting! Life does go on, just don’t allow it to go on without you enjoying the ride!
Have a wonderful day!
