I saw a nice quote this morning, just felt like sharing.
"In life, some people make things happen, some people watch things happening, and some people wonder what happened."
Which are you?
Marisa what a great quote.
I have been a maker all my life long now I'm tired and would like to become a watcher but it just hasn't happened yet...
Maybe it's just in human nature that we all like to believe we're "makers', but I think I'm very much a "maker". Sometimes the drawback to that is that the thing one makes is a big mess, though. When we make things happen, however, it can be worth those occasional messes we make (sort of, I think - maybe).
I'm a watcher for sure...let other people do all the hard work!
FP - so you are .... lucky you!
Ahhhhh - I guess I'm a maker - sometimes I wish I weren't!
I think I would most accurately fall under the category of "a watcher with the tendency to wonder"
Great question! I'm a "watcher" currently transitioning into a "maker".
I watch; but based on what I've observed, I then predict what it is likely to happen. If I don't want what's likely to happen that's when I'll do what I can to make something else happen. If I like what it is likely to happen I may try to make it happen sooner, or turn my attention to a different prediction (that I don't like) and try to make something happen "in that department". I never stop spinning my wheels, watching, predicting, and making - which, I must say, can be very tiring.
Maker, with occasional watch days (it keeps my maker factory running)
I make things happen as I always tell my kids no one is ever going to come knocking on the door with a hand out. Hard work will always win.
Hi helen, did you notice that we both have 199 fans and we both published 37 hubs???
Wow we are twins. but I had 200 fans yesterday as someone pointed out so I have had a drop out lol. No worries I am sure it will increase. I just wrote two hubs over the last few days and published a few mins ago so that is an omen is it not?
If you had Redneckwmn Helen that's your missing fan as she deleted !
Great minds think alike shamelabeboush and Health tips yes your right she was a fan and you became my 200th so I now have 2 200th fans in two days. Is that a record.

I've found in my personal life that when I get my house blessed bad things seem to happen that makes things almost unbearable. It's a common motif on programs on hauntings. Why?

Why do bad things happen to people that don't deserve it?

You know how you sometimes write a blog and sometimes the most unexpected people read it? Well, I've been approached by Huffington Post to speak when they have a conversation about the things I write about! I don't really mention things when they happen once because people can change their minds,...

Between a doer, a spectator and a thinker, who do you consider yourself to be?I came across a quote and it made me wonder how people tend to view themselves?“There are three types of people in this world:those who make things happen,those who watch things happen andthose who wonder what...
