Is life passing you by?Page 5 of 5    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5)
Life is passing me by, life is ignoring me and not including me. I am like a cat in heat right now. I have no man, but I definely want a man. I don't want or enjoyed meaningless sex encounters. Read my profile for what I want. My last and most real relationship ended May 2005.

Time for you to take stock of yourself and your desires and move to where you WILL be happy and help life pass with you in charge!!....

Why complain about others when they have little to nothing to do with you and what you want for yourself? It is not their fault that they enjoy small town, small kids, small things, and small results.......that is what drives them.

By the way, as part native, I would not use the term "squaw" as you have because for many natives, that derogatory word has a much more insulting meaning that many do not understand. Maybe you should just use terms for how old time Caucasians used in Europe used for their women instead.

OT.....Life only passes you by if you let it, and I for one am enjoying the ride, even if it seems to be going faster than I want it to......

cd.........

A decade and a half ago, after being widowed, I thought that I could sit around waiting for someone to do all the things I wanted to do, and that person might never arrive, or I could go do everything I have ever wanted to do. Best decision I ever made in my life was to carry on with my life, and all the adventures I wanted to have.

If I had let life pass me by, I would have wasted the last 15 years.

Thank God I dared to be single and have an amazing (to me) lifestyle.

Free-At-Last - Ironically, I am in the middle of writing that book, hoping to have it finished in a month. Writing has become my therapy, but actually putting my life into words makes you see things so very differently.

My life has changed drastically in the last two years, and I had to give up both of my jobs to take care of my mother and another older relative. Men have shunned me because of this - calling them "baggage" ... or worse ...

For the most part, I try to feel good about myself, and hope there is something out there that will define my life ... and I try to believe there is someone out there for me, as well.

I also refuse to live an unlived life, but there are more times than not that I feel there is no longer any room in my life for me ... What I need is an outlet of sorts, and that's what I'm working on now. Good luck, everyone.

Can I write a captivating book about my life so far? No. Nor would I be interested in doing so. Do I think life is passing me by? No. I also would not want to do "crazy, dangerous things." That does not mean I have not lived life to the fullest. I will also continue to live my life to the fullest as much as I can until I die. I love life and all that it offers - The good the bad and the ugly. I have no regrets about my life. I have done anything I have wanted to do and accomplished much. I am content with how I am living my life. if that changes I will do something to alter my life.

To many folks to include myself at times just let life pass you by. We become hermits never leaving our local surroundings when there is an entire planet to see and experience. Sometimes its good to put it all behind you, travel to places you've never been all around the planet and simply live life. Why go watch the flow of a muddy creek when you can see the blue waters of a tropical island for not alot of money? I'm leaving the country next weekend for a couple weeks and cant wait to unplug from the American way of life.

I've decided that to pass on this metaphor and go with, "Life is passing me beer"

Thank you life.

I think in the process of getting "old" as my kids would say I've learned a few things.
- It's OK not to be the life of the party , but enjoy the life in it.
- Slowing down and using my brain doesnt mean Im boring, but tired of my own stupidity and now make smarter choices.
- The ride is still in getting there, and it doesnt matter where anymore.

So yes I agree, thank you life for never passing me by the good, bad, and ugly.

^^ I agree.
I enjoy the moments of "doing nothing" too, because they really aren't doing nothing moments as long as you have a mind.
Sometimes those times/days are even more satisfying/enjoyable than the days of running around doing a lot!

O.P. I glad you feel that you could write a book about your exciting life.....The question is, If you have nothing better to do than write to strangers on POF......I doubt anyone would want to read your book.

I could definitely write a book, as long as my mother don't read it. LOL
