Daily Prompt: Lifestyle



The habits, attitudes, tastes, moral standards, economic level that together constitute the mode of living of an individual or group.

Well isn’t that just an interesting definition.  I take that to mean wherever I am in my life, my moral compass, job, salary and my daily habits dictate my lifestyle.  Now that doesn’t sound that bad?  It actually sounds fine and has a positive twist on it.

The interesting thing with this word is it typically has a negative connotation to it.  If you drink that’s a bad lifestyle, smoke and it’s worse, have a low paying job and that’s even worse yet.

There seems to be two facets to this word.  A good lifestyle and a bad lifestyle.  No shades in between.  Exercise, eat right, treat people fairly and you have a good lifestyle.  Don’t exercise, eat out regularly, and are feisty and you have a bad lifestyle.

I say this… I might not be a size zero and 5’8″ tall nor am I a VP of a large corporation, I cuss a little, eat out periodically, am NOT a gym rat but what I do have is strong morals and ethics and I treat people fairly and with respect.

I say I have a great lifestyle…yup that’s my story and I’m sticking to it:)

The older I get the more I realize I want to know more, to experience more and to learn. I crave knowing what I don't know. I want to grow as a positve person and be open to others thoughts and opinions. I don't want to lose who I am but I want to enhance who I am through this journey. I love reading, crafts and old cars and trucks. I swear I could look at antique cars and collector vehicles for hours and not get bored. Family thinks I'm crazy but they love me anyway:)
