Long time no see! Literally! I will take responsiblity for that, of course. I ran across a post that I thought was great for some mental arrested development.
It was just a simple question; Are you living your life or are you simply existing.
Of course that is an open ended question that means whatever it means to the reader, with the emphasis on the readers defined definition of life and what it means to them to live it(hopefully meaningfully).
Then I recalled…I indirectly asked the same question. Hmmmmm.
I asked the question of myself and I would have to say with a resounding yes, I am living a quality, meaningful, purpose driven life.
Far from perfect from any stretch of the imagination of anyone. But, life is being lived by me!
I have a better appreciation in the wisdom of the famous Trekkie phrase “live long and prosper”.
Readers, you say what?
- part 1
an endless set of opportunities and possibilities, ranging from very good to the very bad. Seized upon by some and run a miss by others. All during the same time we interact with one another as we pass through life.
Mostly, we see the quantity and the quality of said life by the choices we make.
What opportunity do we choose to yield what possibility? The road to the expected end, if we arrive to what was expected, does that mean we had planned for it? Not necessarily.
That only means our choices and behavior has not changed, and with little creativity or not, we can or should see the end by what we have consistently been doing. A destination will happen whether we plan for one or not. The quality of that destination is what is determined by us.
We live in very awesome times today.
What is life?
What should it be if we live out the projected 78.3 years of American life expectancy.
As far as much as it depends on you for yours and myself for mines, it could be or should be marvelous.
I believe if we think and develop our best thoughts, work towards our best dreams, choose from our best choices and work hard the best way that we can, we ultimately can Live our best life.
Today we are a sum total of the circumstance which we have come into this world and the benefactor of the choices we have made. The latter being the most important indicator of who and where we are today.
The world has become a faster, smaller and more complicated place to live. Seeing that we cannot choose to leave this word alive, it is imperative that we work hard to create and develop the best life we can for our families and for ourselves. In this life we get to choose to live, learn, and be happy…or we choose not to.
Life is full of choices, we can choose the best for us. Yes hard work is included in this deal, but anything worth having requires great effort.
Commit and do the best that is possible for you. Committing to a “best practice” life style can only mean the best is always yet to come.
