Ella Wheeler Wilcox was right when she said, “All love that has not friendship for its base, is like a mansion built upon the sand.” When we practice love, our lives can be interesting. But we don’t do that. But if we focus on hate, on negative thoughts, we are not going to achieve our dreams. We are not going to grow through life. Instead, we are going to go through life.
If we focus instead on loving ourselves, our neighbors, our friends, our crafts, we can change our lives. We can change the lives of the people around us. And we can change the world.
“… life is meaningless unless you bring meaning to it; … it is up to us to create our own existence. Unless you do something, unless you make something it’s as though you aren’t there.”- Alan Alda
If you are not doing something meaningful with your life, if you are not pursuing your purpose, you are just existing.
Do not go through life. If you want to make a difference, if you want to change your life, you must grow through life. You must learn to use your time wisely. You must learn to say no to the things that are taking your time away.
Do not do things that are not taking you closer to where you are going. So if you really want to grow, if you want your life to make sense, you must take your own life into your own hands. It is yours to live. Why are you playing with it? Take it seriously.
