It's my life

It's my life
It's now or never
I ain't gonna live forever
I just want to live while I'm alive
(It's my life)
My heart is like an open highway
Like Frankie said
I did it my way
I just wanna live while I'm alive
It's my life
by Bon Jovi

The song “It’s My Life” is something that I listen to and understand some of what it is saying. I spent quite a bit of time trying to make everyone else happy and not thinking about myself. Now I am looking at life a lot differently and I am doing things to make myself happy. A couple of years ago I took a big step in that I started writing more and also decided to try my hand at designing cross-stitch patterns.

I am now doing things that make me happy and that I have wanted to do. It feels so good when I can sit and say that I am able to smile more because I am living my life my way. I am determined to make myself happy while I also do work for others. Being part of a small business also gives me the opportunity to do a number of different things and that is wonderful. Of course, there will always be some times when I may not be 100% happy doing something but at least now I am in control of the main parts of my life.

Being able to live your life in a way that makes you happy is very important. If you are just trying to make everyone else happy you aren’t doing some of what is important. Before you can make others happy you need to ensure that you are happy with what you are doing. A job is important but you need to enjoy doing it. Even with your personal life you need to have parts of that where you can say that you are happy and are enjoying what you are doing.

It’s my life and I am living while I’m alive and that makes me smile. It has been an interesting journey as I decided that it was time to start doing more of the things that I enjoy doing. I now smile more and can spend my time knowing that I am happy with the various jobs that I am doing. I am not letting what other people say gets me down as much either and that makes it easier.

It’s my life and it is now or never. I am taking some chances with my writing and if things don’t work out, I know that I will at least be able to say that no matter what, I tried. I am living my life my way and I can now smile knowing I am doing it the right way.
