I sometimes wonder if I am living a cliche. I take it as it comes, one day at a time. When things aren't quite as I hope, I try to make the most of it and when things are going well, I thank my lucky stars. When I am really busy it seems I burn the candle at both ends. I count my blessings daily.
As for work, I could take it or leave it. It drives me crazy and it often makes me tear my hair out! Some days I couldn't care less, other days the world is my oyster and it's like water off a duck's back. Whilst I don't like to blow my own trumpet, I work hard for the money and do an honest days work. It ain't rocket science. Work is not the be all and end all and it pays the bills. Generally I manage to make ends meet.
I can be as stubborn as a mule, I don't suffer fools gladly, don't mince my words and sometimes it's my way or the highway. Many times I put my foot in my mouth. I should probably learn to bite my tongue. Apparently life wasn't meant to be easy! And it isn't always a barrel of laughs. What I want to know is, if the best things in life are free, what am I doing in the rat race?
I dream of winning the lottery. I would hit the road, take a well deserved break and live life on the edge. I would take to it like a duck to water. Certainly I would see the world through rose coloured glasses. Perhaps I would live dangerously, dance the night away, live it up. I could go anywhere at the drop of a hat. And when I get tired, I would take the load off my feet, kick back and relax and wait until I got my second wind.
Despite my lottery free lifestyle, lady luck has smiled on me. I have had my cake and eaten it too. I have been footloose and fancy-free and I've settled down. I am lucky to surround myself with those I love. They are my tower of strength. I wouldn't swap them for all the tea in China. Home is where the heart is.
My life is a bowl of cherries and I wouldn't have it any other way.
If your life was a cliche - what would it be? I would love to hear your thoughts!
