What Is Life?

Simple thoughts I would like to share today in the words of good ol' Mother Teresa (even though I am not Catholic or anything), I think these words are quite effective... Enjoy!

Life is an opportunity, benefit from it.
Life is beauty, admire it.
Life is bliss, taste it.
Life is a dream, realize it.
Life is a challenge, meet it.
Life is a duty, complete it.
Life is a game, play it.
Life is a promise, fulfill it.
Life is sorrow, overcome it.
Life is a song, sing it.
Life is a struggle, accept it.
Life is a tragedy, confront it.
Life is an adventure, dare it.
Life is luck, make it.
Life is too precious, do not destroy it.
Life is life, fight for it.
Mother Teresa

While I'm at it, why not a couple more?

Meditate. Live purely. Be quiet. Do your work with mastery. Like the moon, come out from behind the clouds! Shine.

The healthiest response to life is joy.
Deepak Chopra

When you're chewing on life's gristle
Don't grumble, give a whistle
And this'll help things turn out for the best...
And...always look on the bright side of life...
Always look on the light side of life.
Monty Python's Life of Brian

The miracle is not to fly in the air, or to walk on the water, but to walk on the earth.
Chinese Proverb

Yes Determination, me too... I felt especially inspired and I'm so glad I shared that with the world today.

we often spend too long worrying about it rather than living it don't we...

good stuff - thanks

Bizarro Aunt Jackie said...

Yes we do Furtheron!! We need to take a lighter approach and just create joy. It's too short a stay for anything less. :)

What is life? A short time of travel and experiences on this rock. And they all vary depending on where you are located and a lot of outside forces you have no control over.

It's those outside forces that bug the fuck out of me. Rich fucks, politicians, stupid fucking governments, lawyers, the greedy, etc, etc.
