My ramblings of a mad world we live in. And some other helpfull topics will be added from time to time.

Why CAN’T We Have It All?


 Why CAN’T We Have It All? 

I found this artical on the internet. I am not sure who wrote it, but the author sure puts up a valid point. Why cant we have it all?

I grew up wanting to do about five zillion different things and being told I couldn’t. In fact, when I changed what I wanted to “be” from photojournalist to teacher, my mother changed it back. I’m still not entirely sure why, but that’s a long, weird tale.

My point is, I’ve always heard, “You can’t have it all.”

I see the truth in that statement. I do. You can’t have all the meatballs out of the spaghetti. That would leave none for anyone else. Same with all the chocolate chips out of the cookies.

You can’t have all the cars you’d like to drive, because when would you drive them?

You can’t have all the money you’d like to have, because you’d have to work all the time and then what would you do for fun and to spend all that money?

What I don’t see the reason in, what I absolutely refuse to believe, is that I cannot pursue any interest I want, for as long as I want, and then move on to the next thing.

What I will not accept is that I have to be a widget-maker for my entire life, rather than making widgets for a couple of years, then going into sales for three or four years, then teaching for a while. Or even teaching while I’m in sales and making widgets on the side.

Who makes these rules?

Who says we can’t have it all?

Sure, maybe not all at once, but I plan to live a while.

Don’t you?

I am currently staying in sunny South-Africa. I love to be out and about and my favorite pass time is bass fishing and drag racing. From time to time i will play p.c games, but not to much.

  1. indeed veriety is a good thing….problem is you get stuck in your particular carreer and it becomes difficult to get out…i feel as if i am stuck in the freight,customs,import game and cant get out….of course i can …BUT….i would battle as id probably have to take a cut in salary to get into something else………all i eally want to do though is go hiking in the mountains……thinking about how to make cash electronically whilst doing this lately………may just be possible…….perhaps some kind of outsourcing of customes knowledge on the net or sale of photographs……dificult but surly possible………………but despite my boring work i do non the less have many other intrests that i persue in my spare time……….work is just a means to pay the bills as far as im concerned…

    • Really good comment GGP. Same here, work is optional, just paying the bills. If u have the means of an extra income on line, give me a shout will u?

      • i dont have the means but im thinking about it……ive seen this blog advertizing idea…but i dont think much money can be earned this way….but some…..basically you need to create your own domain with a more or less specific photography…then advertizers but their photography products on your blog and you get paid every time anyone clicks an add…..and you get higher profile ads depending how popular your blog is………..
