OK, so who has it right?

By
Real Estate Broker Owner with WHISPERING PINES REALTY 20398180

A man sitting on a fence watching the world pass by is approached by a lady in a car asking for directions.   After receiving the directions she asks..."Do sit on this fence often?"  to which the old gentleman replies.

"Yes Ma'am, everyday most of the day."

"Well", she says, "I travel all over the country and I see a lot of scenery.  Sitting in one place all the time, well, sounds a bit boring."

The older gentleman looks at her for a second and then replies...

"Ma'am, I sit here on the fence and watch the cars go by.  You sit in your car and watch the fences go by.  Isn't that kinda like the same thing?"

Some people feel they need to be moving and see the world, and others are content to watch the world pass them by.  So, who is right?

I would say the person who is happy is the most right. 

Life is what you make of it.  We can't all do the same thing, so do what makes you happy.

Interesting difference of perspective!  I'd rather see different fences than cars but as you said, do whatever makes you happy

Bill...

It's the same to me! I like to watch the cars pass on by and wonder about the people inside them.

Bill, I have become more and more of a home body.  I find solace in the simple things close at hand.
