Abraham Lincoln-Quote Of The Week

Quote Of The WeekThis weeks quote is by Abraham Lincoln and it talks about living your life while you are alive.

Abraham LincolnI loved this quote when I saw it because I know it is true.  I think as we get older we forget to live our lives and not just exist.  I find myself getting stuck with just going day by day and not really enjoying or doing anything other than existing.  I now try to take a step back and try to live in the moment but I can be and is hard to do.

What do you think about this quote?

Life In The Way?

Life In The Way

I haven’t written anything for writer’s workshop in months and when I saw a prompt from this week’s writers workshop I knew I had to write about it.  I chose to write about number 1 which is: Have you ever felt that life was getting in the way of a big goal? Did you end up giving up or pressing forward?

As I look back over the years in life it seems like life always gets in the way of a goals that I have.  I also have given up a few big goals because of things that happened in my life.  I also can see now that I look back that I am just where I need to be in life so even though I never saw myself ending up where I am that it was God’s will for my life.

For example I wanted to be a nurse for as long as I can remember and because of several bad choices and the MS getting bad I never made it and I know looking back now that I wasn’t ever meant to be a nurse but when it was so hard to feel like I was giving up on my dream and being forced to take a road that I didn’t know where it was going to lead me.

There are also goals that I have had to postpone because life through my curves and when there wasn’t anything I could do to make those goals a reality.  One of those goals was to start my business doing blog designs and I got it started but then I got sick & my laptop died so I had to take a break from it and now I am finding it is hard to get back into it.

So in the end I have done both in my life and I am okay with that.  I know that everything works out how it is supposed to.  I also try not to let things bring me down or stress about things that I have no way of controlling.

Have you let life get in the way of goals in your life?
