Food For Thought

I've been trying to catch up on the backlog of items in my feed reader and came across this article by Amy Hoy.

She has some interesting and motivating ideas about how one should go about living their lives. After all has been said and done, a lot of our happiness as people comes down to how we choose to learn and experience the things that life throws at us.

Consider the following thought from her article:

The Pithiest Lesson

It all comes down to this: Some people make themselves into doers. The rest make themselves into what they probably call realists, cynics, or John C Dvorak—but often, in reality, they're merely complainers.

That's just the way life is.

But you get to choose which you are, which you become. And you can change, if you want.

I'll admit to having been on both sides of the above thought. Who isn't at one point or another? Though in my mind I think we'd all rather be classified as doers.
