How has your life been ,good bad ,fantastic?

Recommended Posts

professionally brilliant, personally, rocky at some points. I would like to do it all again, but do it better next time around. Maybe a Buddhist country is just where I need to be to get that second chance. 😀

To add to my last; I always think it would be nice to have 3 lives.  One to make all the mistakes, live like an idiot and drink and eat your self to death.  Two would be to follow a dream, any dream.  Third would be tranquillity itself, living modestly and taking in the beauty of life and all things spiritual.  

 

Actually 4 lives, because it would be great fun in the forth one, to repeat the first one, but that second time, with more money.

How a person's life has been is typically more to do with how much they have appreciated it, as opposed to how much they have achieved.

Not sure why the good fortune of others would lead anyone to retch, but I guess it takes all types.😘

 

I appreciate all the uplifting stories presented by others.🙏

Some people come across as smug.

But if you divorced your first wife earlier, your life would have been different and you would not be with the woman you are now with at this happiest time of your life (I assume she is part of the reason for you being so happy). Sometimes you have got to just accept the past, rather than looking back and brooding on what you should and should not have done in years gone by, and just accept the present.

 

I too have been married for nearly three years now (second time around) and am the happiest ever. But without the <deleted> in my past I would not be where I am now. Not sure if that makes sense, but you get the idea.     

Yep, get the idea 100%. I wasn't moaning but it really is the ONLY regret I have, staying married for so long to a nightmare. And yes I really have found a wonderful, loving caring girl and never really look back much at all.

My life has had more ups and downs than a bar girls"s knickers. 

 

 

Hmmm....to get around all these fluctuations the girls in Le Cyrcee or Mikado didn't wear panties. 

 

Those were the days

Overall been good to me, but hell of a rollercoaster. 

 

Been skijumping, boxing, skydiving, base jumping, climbing, mountaineering, hiking, skiing, snowboarding, diving, freediving, and motorbiking on three different continents, worked as a skydiver, superviser in international oilservice companies, started some few companies, been fishing, mountain, and kayak guide, now back in oilbusiness, and life goes on better than before. 

 

Lost quite a few friends in extreme sport (4 good friends, 15 friends, and total with everyone I met more than 60), had some good relationships, some few bad, and one marriage that lasted 6 years, and now a good gf for some few years. Looking back I wasted alot of time to get back on my feet after a few downfall, but overall, I have been doing great and got back on my feet. 

 

Trying to live simple, boring and healthy now and still many good years to come. My body is weared out, but with decent activities, I can still go to gym, swim, kayaking, sup padling, and work, and that means alot to me, and of course take my bikes out for a blast and also longer trips. 

 

You gotta do what you have to do with the abillities you got, and still have. 

 

Thailand have been good to me, and I guess thats why I can still have a decent life doing what I am doing. If I was stuck in Europe, I believe my life quality would have been less than ok.

I'd have to say my life 'exceeded expectations' or 'fantastic'. That's not to say that every minute is a barrel of laughs, but for the most part very good indeed. The later stages of my life lived here in Thailand have been the icing on the cake, really.

But I didn't;t get ripped of by my Thai girlfriend.
