No, it was a great post dude.




Me...I just wanna be happy when I "grow up". I live life to be happy in it. I dont get hung up on all this bs.
Who cares? All the planning, the trading time for money, the being overly wealthy...what difference will any of it make when we're feeding the worms.
I dont have a great job. Its laborious, for nine months it ulcer bearing, its filled with pesticides, it most definitely doesn't pay me what Im worth, I will never be able to retire, and some days I would much rather jab a fork in my septum than see half my "co workers."

But work is just one part of my life. And Im content in it and happy with everything else.
I have my health. A home, and I have been able to provide for my family more than I ever had growing up.
We have the needs, and most of the wants so.....

I see myself ahead of the game. Shrug

well, Six, having all of the needs and at least some wants is what I think everyone deserves but we are the lucky ones and get most of what we want, if only most of the rest of the world were as lucky

Well said vrals, if we get what we need and a little luxury we should count ourselves lucky.

Great post by DANNP2.

Any time I want perspective, I look at my dad, for 35 years he's been in construction, to the point where sometimes he's working in another country.
He's had a cinder block fall on his neck, got it stitched and gone back to the job, so I could have the opportunities I do.
Last summer he told me he loved every second of it.
He'll probably never retire, and if he does he'll keep doing stuff around the house until he's not physically able.

That's gonna be my measure of success, if I can spend more than half my life doing something, and still be excited to go back the next day.

Six is a lawncare specialist. He does everything to a lawn except mow it. Let's be very clear about that; Six doesn't mow lawns.

For that you need to be funny. Zing!

Six: You've got the right attitude...it's not about stuff, or things, or any of that crap. It's about how you feel. People are all different, and thusly they find happiness in all different places. It sounds so Zen, but I'm totally in line with you. To be as cliche as humanly possible, life is too short.

DANN: I know you think you're old and whatnot but you know that it's never too late to follow your dreams right? I know you have a family to support, but have you asked them what they think about you completely switching things up and going the farmer route? Kids will grow up and move on, and you never know you may actually be able to make it happen if you really want it!

For some perspective, while considering going to medical school I talked to a lot of people about what it's like to go as an older student. To my surprise I came across a few students in their 40's who had decided to make that change in their life. I even spoke to one who had just gotten into medical school and had also just turned 52! In my book you have to have a lot of gumption to tackle that head on at that age. The point being that no matter how old or where you are in life you can always change what you want to do. Most importantly, if your family is behind you then you should just go for it!

Keep up the great posts everyone! cheers
