Love it

what I don’t want

i don’t want to dabble in things
that don’t matter at all
I don’t care to be important
i rather remain “small”
I dont want to change
If I get my degree
I rather stay like i am;
simple as can be..

Some may think its great
to have a phd
Others think its something
to acquire a degree
But i just like the challenge
without any fame
If I should graduate
Can I just stay the same

Is it ok to think this way
or is something wrong with me
For not wanting big titles
or people praising me?
I want to do whatever I must
to help others more
but witout fanfare or bugles
whenever i enter a door..

    • Hi Eva:

      I fear what too much knowledge and learning can do to one. I have seen examples of using knowledge for good and for bad.

      I know its easy to get carried away with self importance..I have no desire for such ways ..am attracted to those .. intellectually. that never make a big noise about who they are. and don’t want to ever think just because one has gone far ..there is reason to become high and mighty..

      Pretty much this is where I am coming from. I dont want to be anyone but myself and if i have to stop being myself to pursue my degree I would sooner drop my degree.

      I am really battling inside me . what to do as I fear losing my happiness for little thngs by going to far in studies..

      joy

    • Hi Eva:

      I am truly in love with the simple things yet find so much depth in the world around me: i am in love with the universe..all creation.  

      I want to always have that and yes you are right I do love hanging around the clouds with my thoughts..Nice getaway..

      Thank you for your kind words. I love anything that allows me to better help others.. It means alot to me all your words..glad you feel I won’t become puffed up like one of those big thunderstorm clouds that produce alot of noise;)

      Have a great evening.

      Joy

    • It’s a beautiful thing to be happy with yourself...just the way you are!  We all get caught up in achieving the next thing, reaching the next level - and too often that ratrace keeps us from realizing how happy we can be.  

      I applaud your honesty about this!

      If more people (me included) followed your philosophy of loving the simple things and being content with themselves...

      Thanks for sharing you! heart
