I forget this sometimes myself, but life is what you make of it.
Sure we have liars and war-mongers in the White House and in governments around the world. Does that mean the majority of the world has to be this
way. Nope, sure doesn't.
Now is the time to create your life in the way you see fit. Do well, be productive, stuff like that, no matter what BS gets thrown in your face. If
we want to make it, this isn't the time to sit down and give up.
I believe we have more power than is realized by many to change the circumstances in which we live. I'm not much into the "just take the kick to
the nutsack and smile" theory. I believe if things are to change then it starts with one person, and that is you. And it is also starts with me.
Fate is created; it is not something that gets carved in stone and can never be changed. "Accepting fate" is a trap. You cannot get out of the
trap if you agree with it or accept it. You are going to have to disagree with it. For example, someone says, "I'm coming to punch you in your
nose." Sure, you could agree with and accept this "fate," or you you can say, "like hell you are," and fight back, or in some way stop this
occurance from happening. Guess what, you changed history, didn't you? You were supposed to get punched in the nose, but instead, you sent the
bully home crying to mommy.
Real life, this is what is happening with me and my life. I live in a family that has somehow accepted that we are poor and there isn't much that
can be done about it. Much of my family history is littered with poor people. I live in a poor to medium income area. Country songs are played on
the radio, which re-inforce the idea of the wonderful "poor working man" lifestyle. I could go into acceptance with this and live the poor man's
lifestyle the rest of my life, or I can change it. This is what I am working on. I have a business in the works that will change this. It is
showing promise. My first sale came a few days ago. Yes, I could toil away at a factory the rest of my life, and bring home barely enough to survive
on. But, to me, this is unnacceptable. I am in the process of changing "fate."
Well, that's it for now.
