Life is what YOU make it!

August 13th, 2011 at 04:49 pm

Everyone "CHOOSES" their own choices in Life, If you don't like your Life then make different choices, its as simple as that! Thinking inside the box is for sissies, just my opinion I have always thought outside the box since birth that's where your "real life" can be found.

    Could you give us some examples of thinking outside the box?

    Just wanted to point out, that for some of us, the traditional is quite comfortable and I wouldn't have it any other way. As a SAHM (who is educated with a post Masters Degree), I wouldn't have it any other way than staying home with a large family. I'm no different that the long line of women that I descend from. I married young and have no regrets.

    @Joan Thinking outside the box basically means being willing to go places that others would never dream,always having an open mind to whatever thought you may get or already have,being a willing participant in this thing called "life" accepting that nothing is perfect,allowing yourself to make mistakes and then having the ability to laugh out loud at yourself,not being so closed in with all these rules I dislike rules(except the ones for safety) I am a born rebel, I love a good challenge If I can put someone up to a challenge I will, bottom line is I don't live by rules, I am very unconventional, and I have never went by tradition, I prefer my own rules and traditions when it comes to the running of my own life.I have never allowed anyone else to dictate the running of my own life. @Laura I am also a SAH woman who is also very well educated as well, by the way a diploma on the wall almost never equals anyone's ability to handle life's problems. There's a huge difference between "LIFE SMART" and "BOOK SMART". So before you go around throwing your education in someone elses face make sure that you have ALL of your facts first. First of all my mother never stayed at home as a matter of fact I am the first woman in my family to break the "Women should work" tradition ALL of the women in my family work outside the home including all of my friends, Second of all I love working at home which is why I "CHOOSE" to stay at home myself I love being a wife and mother,I am very "old fashioned" when it comes to a woman working outside of the home. So I take it that your decision to "stay home" was more widely "accepted" in your family. MY decision to stay home has never been accepted and never will,I'm used to handling diversity in opinions & life's problems. I've never been accepted my whole life,so its a piece a cake to me! But thanks for your very "closed minded" opinion.

    At Petunia thanks for the compliment and your opinion of understanding! Alot of people will never understand where I'm coming from. Again thanks! Smile

    I do know what thinking outside the box means. I just thought I'd encourage you to say more about it, perhaps sharing some specifics since you like the idea enough to promote it.

    And, um, my goodness, Laura is not "throwing your education in someone elses face." Your reaction seems gigantic.

    Sorry you took offense, none was aimed at you personally. My only point in mentioning my education, is that I assumed that I would become educated, have children, stay home a brief time, then put them in daycare and let someone else raise them. Maybe I'd have only the norm of 2.5, rather than the five surviving (two lost) that I have. I embraced the traditional norm of being a SAHM. I am sorry you've felt alienated your entire life; I hope you have a strong support circle to help you, if your family and friends are unaccepting as you say. I wish you nothing but peace.

    @Laura I understand exactly where your coming from but I won't accept PITY from anyone, I don't have pity parties for myself or anyone else for that matter. That's what you call a "victim" not a "survivor" If one's not secure in how to respond to others the best response is silence.I strongly believe everything in life happens for a reason, maybe we don't see it or understand it and I'm perfectly fine with that. I don't need others feeling sorry for me. I don't regret my life at any point and wouldn't have asked for a better life then what I have. The Lord has blessed me tremendously out of all my obstacles and for that I will be forever grateful. I understand that there's always something positive gained from something negative the acceptance of that importance is always up to the person in that situation to gain knowledge to learn something new possibly about themselves and about others as well, All is well here, Good day!
