When Life Becomes More And More Fun

Take The Good And The Bad And Throw Away The Bad

What really matters is all the good that you do

Let us think about that for a minute ?

Each day brings new challanges and a new adventure

What does the bad in our lives bring

Sadness and Sorrow

Why do we constantly have to go down that road?

When we have so many other options to pick from

Look at all the times in our lives

We have seen so so much it is almost impossible to sum up

Let me give it a try

Now bear with me

Each person is a little different and that is what makes us special

We have the day we were born that changed the people around us forever

We grew up and had a childhood and friends and school and that is all I remember

We may have enjoyed a few relationships and our first love

Then we get our first job before or after we graduate from high school

Maybe join the military and serve our country

This is where we learn the basics of finance and the begining of our work future

From here we may choose college and get a degree

We may love working and earning a living

Dating and new loves sometimes come and go

From here we may go from job to job trying to find our nitch

We move on get our first apartment or be at college and dorm with friends

Life starts to pick up speed

Marriage and our own family may have begun

Learning what our parents did or didn't do as we live our lives

Seeing our children grow and finding a way

Buying our first home or condo

Trying to save for our future

Working now for years and spending time with our family

Traveling on vacations and seeing more of the world

As years pass so do the people we have loved

We find a way to make new friends and move on

We may see our children get married and soon begin on their own journey

Now we may become Grandparents and then begin finding new loves

Retirement may be a possibility and we may enjoy life differently

Then we live out our lives the best we know how

Looking back and being proud

This was our life we made mistakes and had the time of our lives

We have learned how to survive and continued on through all the hardships

I am sure if you are like me you got lost and sometimes did things the hard way

Now looking back what do I really see

All my experiences that made me happy that stand above the rest

They are the times that mean the most and make my life special

I share openly with all those who will hear as my fun turns into another day I yell and cheer!

Field-Of-Flowers I am sure there are many variations of the main theme.I think we all try to squeeze the most out of life in the time we have.I was hoping people would read this general timeline and add to it with things that made their own life stand out like going to church,being baptized and recieving holy communion,going into business for themselves,getting their first pet,moving and starting life new again.We all have a chance at living life the way we see fit.I wish everyone a happy and healthy life. Thank you so much for reading and enjoying.

Excellent hub Dream On, inspiring and enjoyable read. I have quite a way to go with my life, but it has had its share of moments, both good and bad. I very much share the sentiments that you do with regard to how we should approach our life.

I also like the way you make use of a timeline to get your point across.

Thank you Dream On. I just had to re-read your hub and click up and awesome again. You give me hope.

I don´t know why I see the glass half empty so often.

You´re so kind, thanks again.

Oh and not that spelling matters to me but if you want to be pedantic...... there should be an i after the p in the long word and oc after the d

Spercallifragillisticexpialidocous oh and the x

Dim Flaxenwick I know so many people use spell check to correct their mistakes.I honestly still don't know how to use it.I rather have you come and visit and help me than any mispelled words.I would love to thank you for your effort and time than any old computer program.I think your glass has a crack in it.So it was never your fault.All this time you were just believing something that wasn't true.Time to change all that.It had a slow leak.Now throw that glass away and you can use plastic they are pretty durable and last so so long.You can throw them and drop them time and time again.I love having fun the most.Thanx your friend.

Dear friend , I have just come here from reading the other comment you made about me and all I can say is thank you again. I truly believe you are a nutcase, which is why we get on so well. (I hope nutcase means the same thing in America...) Oh and how funny is it that I left out the ܨright at the beginning of supe..etc.,???

"times of our lives"(field-of-flowers), "life cycles"- whatever we may call it, I'm not done yet. LOL! I stopped here-"we may see our children get married..."(sigh). My 2 daughters are enjoying life and I don't see any immediate plans by them along this line. Looking back for me is yet a long way to dream on. This is fun!
