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.
