Your Life. Your Path.

Reflections Note:

Its good to have a goal. It gives you a purpose other than living day to day, month to month and showing nothing has been gained or lost. You are alive! Wow! (Little sarcastic). However because you are alive and living and breathing air, you need to have a goal and stop being wasteful... wasting money and TIME. The cliche goes, life is short and you only have one life to live... This doesn't mean you have to be spontaneous and splurge like it is your last week to live. Many people interpret it that way. Think for a minute no debt including you house, emergency funds in place, kids college funded and ready for retirement. After your regular budget, whatever is left is basically yours to do with. There are endless possibilities. J wants a Nissan Murano, I said after the private sale of her car now, we save for 2-3 months depending on year/options, and pay cash. How simple! I truly believe that everyone is made for a purpose, so set your goals high. Your path may not be the same as your friend, family member or neighbors path, but its YOURS. Step onto the path of where you are headed and MOVE MOVE MOVE. You CANNOT stop. I know this has been all just words but really, life doesnt move without making a decision. Know where you are going and GET THERE.

thanks for this post. I had a birthday yesterday and was feeling a little blue. It's good to be reminded that people take different paths, and that there is so much we can do with our lives. :)
