Did I Waste It?

It's summer, I can taste the salty sea
There's a kite blowing out of control on the breeze
I wonder what's gonna happen to you
You wonder what has happened to me


Anyone feel that this is going to happen to them?
Life passes you by????

No way! Not yet anyway! Somedays are of course, better than others, but I really try to live my life to its fullest.
I am a dreamer and I follow them... Nothing's gonna pass this girlie by. At least not until I am too tired to stay ahead of the game.

Sometimes. This song makes me think a lot. It does scare me at times too, but the optimistic person that I am, I don't think I wasted it.

Well I'm too young to have wasted my entire life, but I have wasted a lot. Like the first 3 years of high school. I'm less wasteful these days, but I still feel a little lacking in some areas.

This always makes me think of losing people in my life. Not so much me losing myself, but best friends for instance. And I don't think it matters if your young, old, decrepid, what have you. For me its the fear of "wasting" it with others or our relationship not being "fragrant, rooftop to the basement."

Life passing me by? God, no!!

If one has a series of expectations like:
  • I hope to be married when I'm xx years old.
  • I hope to have my first child by xx years old.
  • I hope to have my own home by xx years old.
  • I hope to graduate by xx years old.
  • I hope to have this much money saved by xx years old.
then you will definitely feel disappointed when those juvenille dreams don't become reality.

Just because "all of your friends" seem to have done this ITEM X already or your family thought you would have done ITEM Z by now, doesn't mean one thing as far as your life is concerned.

Live your life for yourself - and enjoy the ride. But if you aren't happy about where things are going - take charge! Only you can make a difference. Take more classes! Move! Change jobs! Break-up! Lose weight! Whatever change you feel needs to be done - do it. And I'll tell you this now -it will not be easy. Sorry, that's the way life is. Making any change is tough. But if it's what you want to do, then it definitely is worth it.

I have certainly had those fears at times, and I'm sure many see me as having wasted my life because I live what they would consider an alternative lifestyle that doesn't fit into their definition of "success." But as I've gotten older, it doesn't matter to me. I do my thing and it works for me. And it changes all the time.

Oh, and, yeah, what doctorwho said.

take life one step at a time, do what you can, and don't worry about what is out of your control.
life won't pass any of us by.

I don't feel like posting my sad story, but thanks for caring. I DID waste it. I hope no one else will.

You may say I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
I hope someday you'll join us
And the world will live as one

Just as you find me
Always I will be
A little bit too free

Something is about to give

doctorwho should be a motivational speaker, seriously, when I read his post I just feel so CHARGED!!! And I agree with every bit of it. It's hard to keep that mind-set, I'll admit and provide living proof of that.

To answer your question, EdgeVox, you haven't wasted it. As far as I'm concerned you're a thriving actor with ambitions
