Desiring what really fits the individual thinker in weighing both sides and seeking information while hoping to acquire contentment.

The Follower or The Leader

Are we who someone desired us to be, or an individual thinker? How well can we
survey a situation? Do the road signs along life's way seem to fit our style or another's style of thinking?

Which Dicision

Are the instruction we get, from one who is well anchored as a well-balanced self?
Is the decision that may be fest for them, the best for you?
Remember when the mouse ran out of cheese, it moved on. Sometimes it is
necessary to adjust the life's plans of the day.

Plan For Results

Long time planning usually pays off well. Weigh the facts from both sides. Collect a few back-up plans, a few minors to compliment the major. Have a plan B in case plan A does not mature. Decisions are like shoes, they should fit your feet.

Powers That Be

It is well to seek knowledge of the powers that be.
Be aware of the plan of the maker of all things.
Contentment is the treasure money cannot buy.
When found, preserve and cherish contentment
if it comes your way.


Adjust, Anchor Instructions, Contentment, Plan, Survey

Well said, Esther. When we seek out contentment, some may say we are not ambitious. Finally, we have to be comfortable with what we do while stretching the boundaries when young - siva
