Why do you do what you do each day?
Why is it important to you? Your hopes, your dreams, your aspirations, your goals.
When all is said and done, are you happy? Have a feeling of fulfillment? Satisfied?
The thing is we don’t know what tomorrow or even the next few minutes may bring, speaking from personal experience.
So my point – It’s important to live your life fully. And its important to reach outward, extend your knowledge and experience … but regarding your goals it is equally important to reflect and determine why you have the goals you have and your expectations.
Being financially secure is definitely important, however there’s a diminishing return on personal value if earning more money for the sake of having more “things” takes over.
At the end of their life nobody wants to hug their money or their accumulated stuff. What they all want & need is human connection.
And at the end of the day, most of us want to be able to share our day’s happenings with another person(s).
Dont forget whats really important in your life. For optimum happiness – a sense of fulfillment, being needed, and worthy with a purpose in your life – relationships with people (of all ages) should be the main thing, not a side item … when all is said and done!
Thank you for stopping by, have a great week and … as always, take care of you.
“The level of lightness in which you carry life’s burdens
is in direct proportion to your level of happiness and contentment.” ~ P
So lighten up, already.
If there’s not a lightness to your step and laughter in your voice as you go through your daily activities. If there’s no time to feel a sense of wonder within yourself , life and others around you, then you’ve overburdened yourself. Let go of that which is really not important. And it’s for you to decide what that might be.
And know this. It’s your life. You decide how you will carry the burdens for which you’ve made yourself responsible. But remember, if as a result you’re unhappy, the burdens will become intolerably heavy and eventually you will be unable to carry on. There is no happiness when one feels overwhelmed with life.
A balancing act, yes it is. But as in all things there is much joy when happiness is the fulcrum balancing responsibility and self fulfillment!
Be happy, be fulfilled, be contented. Know yourself and your capabilities. Even a strong person asks for help when needed. No need to carry the world on your shoulders. Leave that job to Atlas!
Once you’re okay then you can take care of others.
Have a great Friday,
This then is being.
Cumbersome thoughts assail me. I set aside my imagination so I may ponder my reality. My realness. What I see – the view from my eyes, my living, my taking part in. My truth. My world.
Does my world overlap into your world? How far? Not the fantasy one (although that’s fun) but the real world. The one you live in everyday. How much of my world is your world? Not a lot, would be my guess. We are mostly this way. Our worlds and happenings overlapping with other’s worlds and happenings. But we stay, a large portion of the time, locked within the world of our reality and our making. Adding to or taking away from, dependent on our individual comfort level and need.
So then what do you make of this whole blogging world of things? We all seem to be reaching out, don’t we? What are we reaching for? And Why?
We seem to be presenting ourselves to each other. Visually and with our words. We are searching – aren’t we? What is it that we need so fiercely that we take the time each day to present ourselves, or an especially created version of ourselves to this virtual world.
What’s missing in our lives that compels us to share ourselves in this manner? Do you know? Have you thought about this too?
Do we need to be needed, thought about, supported, encouraged, loved, appreciated, desired … just because we do? Is this enough of a reason to care, to connect and make a difference with each other?
Yes … Yes it is.
Your Dreams, Your Imagination, Your Creativity …
…The Stuff your happiness sails upon!
It looks like you have all the stuff you need!
Okay then …
… Happy Sailing!
