Having a Purpose in Life Enhances Your Mind and Body Health.

“The purpose of life is a life of purpose.”
~Robert Byrne

“Life is like a coin.  You can spend it any way you wish, but you only spend it once.”
~Lillian Dickson

You come into this life not knowing what you are here for. Giving time, you settle on something to do. Sometimes, it takes you forever to find your purpose in life. So far as you find it, it doesn’t matter how long it took you and what position in life you occupy. After all who is competing with you? We all come with different agenda and missions.

Some people find their niche quickly. Others take a lifetime. At the end of the day we all find something to keep us busy enough to contribute to the tapestry we’re all weaving to make this world a better place to live.

It therefore doesn’t matter what position you occupy in this world. You should attend to your work with the seriousness the job demands so you can help make this place you call home a better place than you met it. After all you have only one chance to contribute to this world. Or do we have more chances?

“I think everybody should get rich and famous and do everything they ever dreamed of so they can see that it's not the answer.”

Going With the Flow is a Healthy Prescription For Your Mind and Body Health

"When you find peace within yourself, you become the kind of person who can live at peace with others."
Peace Pilgrim Quotes.

"Some people confuse acceptance with apathy, but
there's all the difference in the world. Apathy fails to
distinguish between what can and what cannot be helped;
acceptance makes that distinction. Apathy paralyzes the
will-to-action, acceptance frees it by relieving it of impossible

Arthur Gordon quotes.

The unpredictability of life can drive fear into our hearts. Most of what happens to us are not planned. However, when all is well with us and the sea is calm, we let down our guard and get exposed to the elements that prey on us. All of a sudden our boat that was cruising along on the calm sea is tossed around by the tempestuous sea.This can  instill fear in us to such an extent that we may abandon our journey or change course.

Therein lies the importance of preparing ourselves to such an extent that when we confront the storms in our lives, we have the will and the skills to face the storms so we don't get battered to such an extent that we abandon our dreams. When we prepare before the ordeal strikes, we have the resilience and the capacity to be able to face the problem with all the inner strength and God given power we can muster. We however become better when we are able to conquer the ordeal. For, each ordeal conquered prepares us for the next one. This is the journey we have all embarked on so we have to accept it with all its foibles.

"You learn more form ten days of agony than from ten years of content."
Sally Jessy Raphael quotes

"Each and everyone is the architect of his misfortunes or fortunes."

William Shakespeare

"Life is a series of experiences, each one of which makes us bigger, even though sometimes it is hard to realize that."
Henry Ford quotes
