What Will You Do With The Chances You Are Given?

Well, I have started several different blogs and then gotten distracted and never finished them. When I go back and read them, whatever mood I was in then is not the mood I am in now and therefore I have not published them.

Lots of things have been going on, what is new with me. I always have several too many irons on the fire. Or at least that is what everyone tells me. This is nothing different than at any other point in my life, since I was very little I have always taken on lots of tasks. Or maybe too many tasks. For some reason, I can focus better when I have too much to do. Otherwise I flounder. Or maybe I just think that. And really it is just an illusion. Like when that famous illusionist made the boeing 747 disappear. The plane was there the whole time, we just thought it was not.

Hence the similarity to my life, I think that I am perfectly balancing everything but in reality, I am leaning one way and then another way and then another way. My team is constantly razzing me about being Coach Momma Beth. And I always tell them I am who I am and I cannot change which leads me to the point of this blog.

"What will you do with the chances you are given?"

When I was little, I wanted to grow up and be the president of the United States, then I wanted to be a Lawyer and then a singer and so on and so on. Always in those wishes, I wanted to have a house, a car and all the material things that Americans seem to want.

Now these days, I really don't care if I drive a Mercedes or a Ford. I don't need a giant house, actually I don't want the responsibility. Besides how do I rationalize the desire for some huge house with the fact that there are so many many people don't have any sort of shelter or transportation. Don't get me wrong, I do like nice things but the point would be that I don't NEED them.
