Just Thinkin'



Kermit sings about how difficult it is being green.  Well, I got news for him.  Being beige, brown, black or yellow ain't so hot either. 

I have to wonder why the older one gets the harder it is simply to just be a person.  I thought I would have all the answers when I got to my 40s but all I have is a mountain of new questions.  It seems once I think I have answered one of them, two more pop up and I realize that I will never grasp even a tiny bit of all there is to know and learn.  There simply isn't enough time.

So I read what and when I can and I listen to people that know a hell of a lot more than I will ever know as I ignore the people who just think they do.  I take the time to try to understand the other point of view even if it makes no sense to me personally.  Occasionally I even allow myself to be swayed.  I envy the people that jump in with both feet and I pity the ones that are too frightened to take a chance. I try to find a balance of those two that I can live with.

And I wake up every day knowing that time isn't always on our side.

You sound like a Libra! I can identify with almost everything you listed and balance seems to be what you are looking for - Libra.

I wish I could jump in with both feet, too. My heart is impulsive like that, but my mind always says "hey wait just a minute there!", LOL.

I can't jump in with both feet either... Too cautious for my own good I guess.

I most definitely lean towards the jumper side. My view is this...

It is a lot less painful to regret what you did do than what you did not do but should have.

I wish I could always trust my gut but the damn brain keeps getting in the way.

My feeling is that if you don't give it a shot, you'll never know what could have been. No regrets. Don't look back. (as long as I'm not hurting someone else or myself in the process).

I'm a jump in with both feet type - although I usually push someone in first...just to be safe..;-)

Sounds like you have a fairly open mind. Not too many do these days. Listening to another point of view is a dying art. Being open minded enough to actually agree and change your mind is even more rare. Kudos to you.
