July 18, 2008 - Friday Living Life the Hard Way.... Current mood: tested Category: Life Having just completed my l8th day of walking, I am recording my thoughts over the past two days.It is hard to live life the hard way...because it is easier:*to go downhill than uphill.( It actually takes twice as much time and energy, but it is a Big hill from the top to the bottom) But back to my list. It is easier:*to give up...than to keep trying*to make a mess...than to clean it up*to take a shortcut...than to go the distance*to spend money...than it is to save money*to beak something...than to fix it (and somethings can never to fixed)*to email...than to send a card in the snail mail.*to be impatient...than to be patient*to waste time...than be productive*to gain weight...than to lose it (Don't get me started on that one!)*to eat junk...than to eat healthy*to watch TV...than to read a book*to tell a lie...than to tell the truth*to make promises...than to keep promises *to be distracted...than to pay attentionIt's hard to live life the hard way because it is easier said than done. 1:44 AM - 0 Comments - 0 Kudos - Add Comment - Edit - Remove
I am blessed to live in San Diego. People come here for a vacation and I get live here all year long. I taught 2nd grade for 43years and retired in 2013.I still volunteer in a 2nd grade at my school every Thursday. I have two grown daughters that are a very important part of my life. I am married a wonderfully patient man with two daughters a son and two granddauhters, and we live with two very entertaining cats. While I enjoy champagne at a wedding or special occasion , I do not need alcohol to have fun and it is never an option if I am upset. I truly can find joy in simple pleasures. I do not drink coffee, I am so blessed to take care of my youngest granddaughter once a week. She calls me Gamma and Bill is Popi. Hearing her say her names for us brings such joy to my heart.
