Needed to Be Stamp by Mirz123 Needed to Be Stamp by Mirz123
*** When I found the quote, it was mis-quoted. Updated it with the proper wording. ***

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

This is an entry for the #stamp-kingdom monthly challenge. This month's theme is "Inspirational Quotes." [link]

I tend to do inspirational quote stamps often, anyway. But it's been a while since I've done one and the challenge was a nice push.

This is a quote by Douglas Adams. It really speaks to me since my life has taken such wide twists and turns, many of which I didn't plan (and often fought against). And though things are pretty cruddy at times, where I am is good and I am happy.

:happybounce: You do NOT need a subscription to use this stamp. Due to dA changes, you can now use it in your journal or ID box, even if you are not a pay-member. Simply cut-and-paste the thumbcode into your journal and you'll post the stamp!!

:bulletgreen: Stamp template by me, not yet released.

As with most of my pixel work, you may use this on and off deviantART, without my permission. The only thing I ask is that you keep the file name in tact and don't remove any credit information. Also, if you use, let me know as it encourages me to make more free-use art.

This is certainly true. When I was younger, I did not like using the computer, and I never wanted to use it. Now I use the computer daily, and I've met my two best friends on a Wikia, one of which I'm in love with. I may not have ended up on the road I thought I would be on, but I'm on a road I'm glad I'm on.

This reminds me of a Bible verse.
Proverbs 16:9 The heart of a man plans his way, but the Lord establishes his steps.

This stamp is pro giving up on your life's goals because of a setback.

Mirz123 Featured By Owner May 25, 2012
No, it's not at all. Sometimes life leads you in different paths than you expect. Many time people lament about that instead of embracing the opportunities that the new path present.

An example is I had so wanted to pursue my dreams of being a writer as a young woman. Instead, I married and had kids. It wasn't where I planned, but it has been a rewarding life. Now, as my kids are growing, I'm back to writing. This stamp is about embracing setbacks and working with them, not the other way around.

I don't relate to this stamp; I think settling is lame. We should strive to better ourselves and our lives, and that doesn't always mean in a business/popularity way.

:iconmirz123:
Mirz123 Featured By Owner Jan 7, 2012
Honestly, I'm not sure why you are getting all down on this. It's not about settling. It's about sometimes going in one direction, and being led in another direction, and realizing that was the best option. Sometimes we end up somewhere, not for ourselves, but because someone else needs us. It's not what we planned, but in the end it's the best.

The correct ending is "Where I needed to be"... I don't mean to nitpick, but I just got done reading Long Dark Teatime of the Soul, where it originated. I love it anyway.

Well, I got it from a quote site and that is what is said, so it was mis-quoted there. :/
