The following quotes are from a book I just finished reading, which has a lot of good advice about being dependable and living a life of gratitude.
I am not sure I want to think about what we all might want to have happen to us in the future. In the short term, the worst thing that could happen is that I die. In the long term, I could be lucky enough to get pregnant again and have a baby. I was reading about being a parent, and it seemed like a better life than my own.
I didn’t know what was going to happen to me in the end, so it seemed like a good thing to be able to have a life. It was also a lot harder than I thought it would be. I thought there were three things I was going to do in the end. One was to get married and have a family. The second thing was to go to college. The last thing was to get a job.
I can only hope that having a baby makes things easier.
I know what you mean. The hardest part is the initial decisions. What will you do after you get married? I’m not going to be a stay at home mom. I’m going to be a stay at home wife. It’s hard to just know what to do, but the thing is, you don’t know what to do.
I don’t know whether I’ll be a stay at home mom or a stay at home wife, but the second I have kids, I’ll have to stop thinking of them as my kids, and start thinking about them as my friends. If something happens to me because I’ve been at home, I’ll be left with nothing, and nothing to do but wait. The point is, you have to take a step back and realize that you might not be able to come home every day.
Yeah, but I can’t quit my job. In the past, when my job didn’t come home, I would take care of myself. This time though, I won’t be able to. My friend, who works on a boat moored off the island, has told me that, even though she’ll be working on the boat for the next two months, she’s not sure if she’ll be able to get home every day.
That’s it. We’re not even talking about the obvious. You might not be able to live without your job, but you can still be a dependable person.
It seems like the more things you do that aren’t dependable, the more you have to depend on them. For example, a woman with a job and a small child. Well, she has to care for the child. I mean, if she doesnt have a job, shes basically unemployed.
Well, I guess that depends on how you define dependability, but I think its more important what kind of person you are than how much you have or don’t have. If you can just get on with things and not be afraid to say something, that is more dependable.
