Life isn't about finding yourself. Life is about creating yourself.
George Bernard Shaw

Yes it has been a while since I had a Ponder Day.
Let us just say that it has been a very interesting week.

I love that quote by George Bernard Shaw: Life isn't about finding yourself. Life is about creating yourself.

We seem to have the perception that our life is determined before we live it-and we are just stumbling into our fate. This type of thinking is debilitating. The reality is that, if we aren't creating ourselves, someone or something else is. The question is, "Will we find a product of our environment or a product of our own intent?" If we aren't proactive in creating ourselves, we will default to the creation our environment has in mind.

How many times have you heard that some person or other is on a quest to "find themselves?" Many times we hear it in relation to a young person starting out in life to find their purpose, or when an older person jokes about what they want to be when they "grow up."

However, the older I get and the more experiences I have and relationships I develop, the more convinced I am that each individual's purpose in life is to draw their own map. Throw out the recipe book, the paint-by-numbers kit, and anything anyone ever told you about who or what you should be-and chart your own course.

It's not easy-and it's not comfortable. We are trained from birth to make safe, reliable choices. In school we are encouraged to conform and not to color outside the lines; in business we are comforted by "blueprints" and case studies; the media shows us how we should dress, where to vacation, and who we should emulate.

Think about it. The last time you went to the store to look for something in particular, what was your motivation? Did you see an ad for it somewhere? Have you chosen a vacation spot because so-and-so went there and raved about the good time they had? When you think about those experiences, did you feel a little "let down?" Was the build-up of what you expected not quite what you thought it would be in the end?

On the other hand, when you remember a time you went off the map and did something completely new, how did that feel by comparison? I'll be willing to bet that it was a much more satisfying experience-maybe even exhilarating! It wasn't easy, you had to put more in, but you got more out. Maybe it's time for you to be the one charting a course that others will follow.

When we were kids we intuitively leaned in the direction of creation. Making mud pies, finger painting and exploring was a lot more satisfying than playing with a toy, wasn't it? We were charting our own courses, creating something new, and finding out more about ourselves. In fact, kids can teach us a lot about the creative process.

It's the uncharted experiences, not the guided tours, which truly help us "create" ourselves. When we listen to the inner nudge to do something different and go in a way that intuition leads us-follow our dreams and desires rather than in someone else's footsteps-those are the moments that define who we are and give us insight into how we can participate in the world around us. We shouldn't lose sight of that.

ribbon says:
So as you look ahead, instead of trying to "find yourself" by following what others have done, dust off one of the dreams you've kept locked away-one that makes your heart sing with anticipation-and just for fun, plot out a plan to make it happen.

Dreaming is an act of creation, and it's the wellspring of innovation. So don't stifle your inner creator; feed it, and open yourself to new possibilities.

"Cherish your visions and your dreams, as they are the children of your soul; the blueprints of your ultimate achievements." ~ Napoleon Hill

@ Robb
Thank you for the thought provoking start, now I am definitely pondering,
I do know that the older I get the more accepting I am of myself instead of working on making others accept me, basically life is good whether influenced by others or not.
Though I am also glad that folk here influence me to a certain degree about books to read :-)

Super start. Thank you Robb.

Robb. This is the second time you have mentioned that this has been an interesting week. Something has happened to make it more interesting than usual. Care to share?

Hi dinkyd
How are you doing?
I do hope that things are getting a bit easier for you.

I've been at Moms...
Picked Chris up from work and now I'm at home..
In my nightshirt laying in bed..

Have I been complaining a lot about missing mom?
You know that I missed her bunches, but, if she tells me one more time how she is "snowed in"
when there isn't even any snow on the road... I might just blow it.. This is her excuse for eating a piece of
bread and nothing else for lunch today.." I have to eat something and I'm snowed in..."
In the first place, Not snowed in, in the second place we went to the store yesterday...
BUT, I love her lots...

Posted on Mar 4, 2014 10:55:36 PM PST
Robb, Great things to think about..
It kinda goes with my story from yesterday..

Posted on Mar 5, 2014 1:55:47 AM PST
From my wish list....
I got three or four from this series on 1/31/14

Dandelions Never Die:Book 1 of The Dandelions Series
Book 1 of The Dandelions Series by McCartney Green, an 8 book romantic adventure. "Gritty, sexy, action-packed, inspirational..."

"We are only victims if we allow ourselves to be." Shelley wanted to scream in frustration the day Master Kino asked her to consider that statement. In the end she learns the truth.

After being sexually assaulted, Shelley Adams is having a difficult time. Not only did it end her marriage, but she is filled with guilt for not having fought as hard as she thinks she should have. She goes searching for empowerment and crosses paths with legendary martial arts master, Eric Kino. He offers to train her and she believes her life is about to change drastically . . . and she's right.

Eric Kino has finally found love a decade after losing his wife to cancer. Unfortunately, finding love brings terror and pain to the one he cares most about. When Eric's old enemy seeks revenge Shelley must dig deep to find enough courage to triumph over the evils of hatred.

Will she be able to see through the haze of pain and blood to bring about her survival? Will she conquer her fears? Will she finally find the empowerment she is looking for?

"A sexy and suspenseful read that is inspirational to both men and women."

Weeds Grow - Book 4 of The Dandelions Series
Women's fiction/romance
The much awaited story of Ricky Kino

Martial arts movie superstar, Ricky Kino, is unhappy with his "playboy" style of life. He makes two decisions, one, to get back to his roots and two, to go after what and whom he really wants.

His timing couldn't be better, for the moment he gets home, a phantom from the past asserts itself into the Kino family, intent on destruction. Seeds are planted and weeds grow rampant, trying to break apart and destroy the firm Kino foundation. The entire family is stunned by the events that follow. Things take place that they never could've imagined in their wildest dreams.

Ricky must step in and take control in order to save his family and protect those he loves most in the world.

A Place Called Home - Book 3 of The Dandelions Series
Stunned and betrayed by those closest to her, Lisa Lewis begins a mad dash across the country searching for a home she's never known. She brazenly walks right into the middle of Chaz Stewart's cattle crossing and tips his world upside down.

Lisa experiences the wonders of home and family for the first time in her life, but somebody in the small town of Pine Forest wants her gone. What begins as dangerous pranks turns quickly into life and death struggles and Lisa learns that real families stick together through thick and thin.

AND from a different series...
Call Me Jane (The Oshkosh Trilogy)
Jane's a nice girl, smart, pretty, and capable. But a desire to fit into her new school sends her reeling into a world filled with drugs, alcohol, and manipulation.

At first, Jane adores her new life. The dullness of the past has transformed into a thrill ride. She has friends, purpose, and an eye on the hot lead guitarist of a local garage band. Everything seems great. She feels free.

But it doesn't last.

Dark and captivating, Call me Jane is the devastatingly real tale of the price of fitting in.

and thanks to Elle and Sandy for your starts as well on Monday and Tuesday.
RL got in the way for a few days....

In reply to an earlier post on Mar 5, 2014 5:10:26 AM PST
Ditto Susan.....Thanks to Elle, Sandy and Robb.....Great ponder, Robb!

Have you ever heard the saying, instead of "It's one thing or another", the real saying is, "It's one thing or your mother." ( that's what our kids say about us too!) All kidding aside, your Mom relationships either having one or being one is unlike any other relationship you'll ever experience! IMO : )

No comments about the curling video?

In reply to an earlier post on Mar 5, 2014 6:42:30 AM PST
ribbon says:
It is said in the vein of "May you live in interesting times." Which I just discovered is actually American or Western certainly not Eastern and the first references are sometime in the 1920's.

RL has not been boring lately. Flexibility in changing plans has been a necessity. Bronchitis and asthma are not a good combination.
