Life is full of first times, it starts with that all important first breath when we are born, then our first steps and our first words. Then we start school and have our first teachers, read our first books on our own, learn how to write for the first time. We eventually grow up and those first times seem to become more and more less frequent. Life becomes more routine as we get older, and we tend to get on one of many paths that we seem to stay on, we go to the same job every day, see the same people every day, get the same paycheck every week, and there is nothing wrong with that.
But if we want more out of our lives there is nothing wrong with that either. I read a lot and I see over and over again this quote,
“Be thankful for what you have”
I wholeheartedly agree that we should be thankful for what we do have, I know I am, but there is nothing wrong for us to want more than what we have. Why shouldnt we? Will it make us any less thankful? I would like to think not, but we do need to keep ourselves in check.
So how do we go about getting more than we have? Beats the hell out of me, I do not know the answer to that question, I am no expert in this field, if I were I would have a book out about it. However, I am a progressive thinker, and I think a lot about a lot of different things, most of it is about writing, more accurately my writing. My head is always buzzing about how I want my writing to go, what characters to use, how to get them to express to you on paper, what is in my head. I do know that it all starts with a
So I pose this question to you,
When was the last time you did something for the first time?
If you do not have an answer to this, it may be time to sit back and take a look at what you want and how you are going to get it, you just may find that this question may put you on the path you want to be on.
