  4. Profound statement! Sadly, some who lose their way never find it. For others, however, it begins a quest to find themselves…maybe for the first time! I’m grateful for the time the Lord has given me to search out myself…

    • We can always look as long as we have breath in our bodies! I tried some Jack Canfield…he has some good things to say.

      I may ask for a couple of your very favs to try out, if that’s okay with you…

      🙂

    • Sure! Let me think about which are my very favorite!!! I’ll let you know…I love listening to Abraham/Esther-Hicks and Louise Hay is kind of where I started but let me think of more!! I’m so excited for you…

    • Wow, lady, you really are a very optimistic person! Guess I need to try to be a bit more positive myself in certain things. I mean I’m not always down on everything, but I know I need to try to improve on the “possibility meter!”

      Thank you for the interest and help, Deb…

    • It’s more fun to be optimistic!! Everything is possible…Jack Canfield said…”you would not be given the dream if you could not accomplish it”. Think about that, isn’t that an awesome statement, for example I have no dream to be a chemist and I have not been given that dream…so we’re all given the dreams we can accomplish!! I love that…:-)

    • I love the idea of that idea…(huh???) I do think that if we dream something is possible we may think we can accomplish it. But what if we don’t have the skills necessary to reach our dreams? What if you did want to be a chemist but lacked the mathematical ability, or knowledge of science it requires?

      You may still want to BE a chemist but you will not be able to reach that goal. Is that where we should take a self-inventory first to see what abilities we may have and then pursue a dream within our “wheelhouse?”…

    • Ah but that’s just it, we are only given dreams we can accomplish! It’s perfect…God and the Universe know our strengths and therefore guide in that right direction…interesting huh?!

    • Somehow I thought this would be your answer. I enjoy the fact that you are such a positive person. Perhaps you are right about the dreams/goals we set for ourselves. I do believe we must assess our strengths and weaknesses before we set a goal for ourselves…

    • Maybe you should follow your heart more!! 😊

    • Maybe I’d trust my heart more if it had some “head” mixed in with it…Lol! I suppose a well trained heart, trained by a little life, can be something to follow at times…

    • Ahhh, my mother always told me I wore my heart on my sleeve, she’s right and I follow it most of the time too…I just have too, I feel better when I do!! 🙂

    • But I’ve heard that people who do so get their feelings hurt so often. They are open and honest about so many things when most people are a bit guarded. Then the truth about those people usually comes through and it may not be what the “heart-sleever” was expecting or hoping for…

    • Ahhh that’s the key…don’t have expectations of others, let them be and accept them for who they are, and you be who you are. Not everyone will accept you but that’s ok and just because you accept someone for who they are does not mean you agree or like who they are but you also don’t let them bother you…I wouldn’t have it any other way…

    • Good words of wisdom, Deb. I came from a home where my father was a very sensitive man filled with expectations about others. As a result, he was often left feeling sad when many people would let him down…

      Now my mother was much the opposite. She saw good in people even if they might disappoint her. But she was so happy that she was able to realize her dreams of becoming a teacher…she loved to teach kids!

      She and my dad were accomplished people in life, yet held very different outlooks. Wow, I sound like I’m on a psychiatrist’s couch or something! Lol…sorry!!

    • Lol, don’t be sorry at all, I appreciate your sharing and maybe it’s therapeutic for you..so it’s a win win and we like winning 😉 Being a teacher was one of the things I thought of doing when I graduated from high school, really wished I had followed thru with that.

    • Yea, we all had dreams which we never went for but wish we had years later. I wanted to be a psychologist but was too impatient to go through all the schooling. I made it about half way through.

      I did wholesale marketing for many years, and then sold cars for a few years after that. But I couldn’t keep up with that kind of job as my legs started to get a bit worse…

      Well, see, there’s a bit more “win-win” for ya! What kind of work do you do, if I may ask?

    • That’s interesting, you should have self-analyzed yourself as to why you were impatient. HA 😉 It’s a shame about your legs, I’m sorry. My official title is Comptroller, I’m the financial person at work, bookkeeping, payroll, receivables, payables, and then oh so much more…many hats! It used to be okay but I would never say I loved doing it. I do like working with numbers and I’m very detailed and organized but writing or teaching gives me so much more satisfaction.

    • The True Light!

      Yep, I wish I had dug in and stayed with college. All my credits are too old now to apply to anything. Oh well…

      I guess we have crossed over some common ground…before I took over as a marketing manager for the appliance parts company, I was their credit manager for about 2 years. In fact, I had gotten into that company because I was the credit manager for a competitor of theirs for 4 years before that.

      Even as a marketing manager, I was responsible for the bulk rate pricing policies which each of my accounts had to maintain, so “watching their bottom lines” was a must!

      Now, of course, I find a good bit of satisfaction in talking with my friends like you here at WP, and writing my posts as well…

    • Funny, I went to community college and my major was marketing, but I only completed one year as I found a full-time job at a CPA firm and the rest is history…

    • The True Light!

      Yea, as I’ve said before, I wanted to work. I liked doing a job and getting my paycheck along with days off to enjoy things. That was short-sighted, however, as I was building little or no real professional future for myself. I bought into that idea that some people were just not made to go to college…mainly because I didn’t want to put in the study hours and classwork.

      Now I wish I had done it. But I’m in no position to go back to school, it’s far too late for that and not financially feasible.

    • Ah but you are wrong…as C.S. Lewis says…You are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream…there are online courses you could always take…just saying! 😉

      Yea, I know about them and have no real problem with that part…it’s the money end of it. I have two sources of income for myself, plus my wife’s income.

      But if I go to school, I’ll still need grants and student loans. And in applying for those, it will mess my social security income. I just can’t take that at all! So school isn’t an affordable option…
