Twitter Inspirations

I'm sitting here at my desk, trying to search the web for things to make me happy. Honestly, I've had a pretty lousy day. Finals for my classes, family visiting, endless driving, working, and then the big hitter: losing another one of my cleaning clients. Curse you darn economy! (Waving fists in the air). So as I type away on my Safari Web Browser looking for advertising techniques, any free money, writing prompts, and *gasp* "real jobs", I get an update from my Twitter account. I switch over to my Twitter application on my desktop and see that Ashton Kutcher has added a new update reading:

"We date someone because we are lonely, settle for a job cause it pays the bills, or accept less in life because we are scared we can't have more"

and his update after that:

"why do we settle?"

And it got my thinking. Why do we settle? Why am I settling? As I sit here and complain and worry that now I won't have any money, and school is caving in on me, and maybe I'm not being the best parent that I should be...Why am I settling? Shouldn't I keep trying, and keep going? I shouldn't just sit here and accept that I am going to be stuck in this rut forever. I should keep going all the way, all the way to the top, some song lyrics would say. Instead of giving into defeat and just settling for what my life is like now, I should go out and grab what I can, and work my butt off because I shouldn't be scared that I won't have more. Because I can. We all can have more. But don't be too greedy ya'll:-)

One night of worry has been resolved, and can at least, wait til morning.


  1. Isn't it nice when while having a horrible down in the dumps day, something happens that makes it seem that much better? Now if only something could happen to make a great day seem better! I hope everything works out!

  2. Truly is beautiful!

    How odd that you could get inspiration from Aston Kutcher, of all people!

    Just stopping by from SITS to say hi!

  3. Hang in there. When I am feeling down, I set a goal and focus on obtaining it. Hi from the SITStahood.

  4. He brighten your day anyway.

  5. Just in from SITS to say HI...I love your daughters name...awesome!

  6. That was good...and true! Why do we settle...or really why do we believe we do not deserve more out of life...or why do we think we cannot have more? Great post! Thought provoking!

  7. Stopping by from SITS and i just wanna spread some cheers! As for your post main theme..well, we all confront with that a way or another, so hang in there!

    Have a better Wednesday!
