make a life

Without purpose, life is but a breeze.

Most people live...in a very restricted circle of their potential being. They make use of a very small portion of their possible consciousness...much like a man who, out of his whole bodily organism, should get into losing and moving only his little finger.
Life is 10 percent things that happens to you and 90 percent how you react to the 10 percent.

Dr. Carl Rogers- If I were to search for the central core of difficulty in people as I have come to know them, it is that in the great majority of cases, they despite themselves, regarding themselves as worthless and unlovable.

According to St Augustine, "Seek not abroad, turn back into thyself, for in the inner person dwells the truth".

What lies beyond us and what lies before us are tiny matters when compared to what lies within us - Ralph Waldo Emerson

So irrespective of one's trials in life, remember that we make a living by what we get but we make a life by what we give.

Wise!

Such wise words here. It can be difficult sometimes to quiet all the noise around us and just breathe in, be still, and look at all the possibilities.

I especially appreciate your last line about making a LIFE by what we give. I have always loved being in service to others and find such meaning in being a partner to help make things happen... I just have to remember to give space for other people to give back to me sometimes! An interesting contradiction of sorts.

Anyway, looking forward to more of your writings!

thank you

Thank you...I actually had a little confidence in my ability and worth but I've realised that everything has the power to make or maim depending on your availability to it.
WorldPulse has thought me that even a child can make the greatest of impacts...as long as he tunes it well.
So we all need a hero even when we feel we don't.
