Live For The Experience

Updated on February 2, 2014

Life Is So Much Better

When we look for a positive outcome before we even start

Then we can be happy with the results

As they flow in

Knowing we have made our life better

What if our life came with a set of instructions ?

A whole list of things to do and a bigger list of what not to do

Would we do any better?

I don't think so

We are all born with the freedom to live our life any way we see fit

With an imagination

That can change any situation with one single thought

Learning as we go is part of the fun

Good common sense keeps us from going off the deep end

When we see other people that make mistakes and their life becomes hard

Most people will think twice before doing the same thing

Then some people will have to give it a try

Who is right ?

It's up to you to decide

The beauty in life is seeing such a variation

We get to choose ?

The whole human race has made so many extraordinary advancements

Followed by so many mistakes

I feel torn between the best and the worst in the world

I take a little extra time to think

Before I do something

So later I won't regret it

At least ninety percent of the time

Then there is that ten percent

I have to a rebel and do what I think

Not always right but something inside of me clicks

I have to do it

Even if the stakes our stacked high against me

Why do I do it ?

Am I expecting a different outcome ?

Maybe it's the challenge that we thrive for

As I check my results

Only time will tell

The actions I have taken have consequences

I will give further details when the heat blows over

A topic too hot to touch

I have to evaluate my choices

I went with my gut

Not with any knowledge or results from the past

I call it my shot in the dark

So as I temporarily suffer

Trying to avoid conflict

I am laying low

Back to writing my ideas and great plans on paper

Figuring out my next move

To be continued ....

      I love this and voted up. Like a map into the unknown. In this crazy old world right now I'm trying to float on clouds, while chasing elusive dreams but I too will get where I'm going. The best to you and keep me tuned in to more.

      If we were given directions for life I would probably skip some of them anyway. LOL I love to just live and let things happen....the thrill of the unknown and the satisfaction that comes from dealing with life on my terms. Loved your message.
