Wednesdays Question

questionIt’s Wednesday so that means it’s question time. It’s time to ponder and then answer just one question. Okay, you can add all you want as a reason for your answer too. We’d all like that.

Here’s this weeks question: Is your life what you expected it to be, or did it turn out differently than you had planned/hoped for?

My life has exceeded all my expectations. I struggled for so many years and am now comfortable in my retirement. I married the love of my life and we really do have a fairy-tale life. I’m so blessed. I think a lot of how I feel is my attitude about life. Gratitude is most important.

    It turned out differently than what I had planned or dreamed BUT definitely better. 🙂

    I totally agree with you, gratitude is important and it is always nice to have that positive disposition whatever life throws you..my one liner never fails to encourage me "this too shall pass"

    Happy Wednesday my dear!

    I would say better and different.I live in paradise, but far from family. I also married the love of my life and we have been sharing a non-stop adventure for years. Lots of twists and turns, but gratitude and focusing on the positives seems to be the key.

    Oh, it is totally different that what I'd ever imagined as that idealistic, doe-eyed teenager. I expected to be a happy homemaker… wife, mother & grandmother and to never leave my tiny corner or Massachusetts. Instead I married Mr. Wrongfella first, couldn't have any children and have been working and living in the south for more than 40 years ar away from most of my family..

    But at least I did finally get to marry Mr. RightFella! So Yay!

    Have yourself a wonderful day with that sweetheart of a fella of yours! xoxo

    No, my life is nothing like what I had expected. It is what it is though, some good, some bad. Attitude is everything and if you don't let the bad times take you down the good times are that much better.

    Way back then, I didn't expect much nor look forward to anything. Looking back, life has been good even with the ups and downs. Having the right attitude, contentment and gratefulness, etc is very important. I am indeed thankfulness for all that I have.

    I have more reasons to be thankful for my life than I can count. About the only thing that turned out the way I planned it was my profession, and even that was by the grace of the Almighty. I look around me today and I really have no legitimate reason to complain about anything. I live in a beautiful part of the greatest country on earth. I was born and grew up in what history may recall as the "Golden Age" of this nation. I have a great family and we have all been healthy. Life has been good and I have no one to thank but God Himself. Thank you Lord.

    Sooo happy for you! A fairytale come true!
    No, my life did NOT turn out as expected but it isn't bad………that being said, I sure wouldn't mind hitting the lottery so we can finally stop worrying about money!! Have a great day! Sending much love!

    My whole life is different than what I thought it would be mainly because of my stroke. One day was this but the the next day a whole life changed. I've enjoyed the life that I've had and wouldn't change it for nothing. I had to build my life totally different then what I had planned before the stroke.
    Have a brilliant Wednesday Sandee and once again, SMILE. Life has so many great positive things in it. See it.

    My life is really good with all the animals in it and that is how it started with my love of animals, so all is good. I just knew I would always be involved with animals and that is how it happened. Sandee, you have a great day with that Zane and Little Bit.

    My life has exceeded my expectations. I have the love of my life for 47 years now, and am truly blessed with a great family and great friends. Totally blessed, with only minor bumps in the road of life.

    Big hugs to two great friends, honey…

    I was going to be centerfielder for the Yankees but I couldn't hit a curve ball.
    or a fastball.
    or a changeup.
    Oh, I also had trouble fielding a fly ball…otherwise…

    I was first married at the ripe old age of 19 and had two children within 5 years- after that my life was turned upside down and it took quite awhile for me to figure out what I needed to do. I managed to keep my priorities straight and now am married to the most perfect person for me- we are so blessed. I count my blessings every day and never ever take life for granted..

  13. BeadedTail says:

    I never had any expectations but so far my life has turned out better than I could've imagined! I married my high school sweetheart and we are perfect for each other still today. I love my friends, my job, our house, town, state and of course I love my girls more than anything! Life is good!

    So glad your life is so fabulous too Sandee! Smooches to Little Bit!

    My life turned out completely different from what imagined it would be. Would I have been happier had it not turned out the way it did? That is a question that I can't answer truthfully because I have no way of knowing. I did the best with the cards I was dealt, but had I been dealt different cards, I would've made the best of that hand too.

  15. Jean R. says:

    I honesty don't recall having any expectations that looked too far in the future when I was younger. Goals, yes, but I spent my life going from one opportunity to another. I've always worked and worked hard but I wouldn't change much except my husband's stroke of course.

      That is one thing that would have been nice not to of had to deal with. Strokes are serious business for both the one that has the stroke and the one that has to care of that person. 🙂
