Live Happy, Be Fair

If you told me what my life would be like 10 years ago when I was 23 I would have laughed and said "thats impossible".  Im not where I wanted to be. This isnt what I wanted to do.  Its not where I wanted to go.

But even if Im not where I thought I was going.  But you know what?  Im doing ok and Ill be alright. 

I worked really hard, the result I got is so unexpected.  If you told me I would be living on the south pole in an igloo I wouldn't be more suprised then I am already. 

Live Happy, Be fair but don't be the sucker,

David

if not now, when?


Life is short.  Are you living it?  Perhaps not.  Maybe you haven't got the guts.  But when you are old and still unhappy, remember its no one's fault but your own.  Just do it.

Moving on

Love, God, the Universe.  Me...

How do I relate?  Who is God?  Does God exist?  Where does the idea of God come from?  Why is it such a common thought in the human mind?

As human beings we understand that there are many things that are beyond our comprehension.  Life is difficult.  Complicated at times. 

We look to a god.  We understand that its ok to not understand what is happening in this world.  We understand that we have a small role in the Universe, in Time.  With the idea of God we accept that many things are beyond our comprehension.

Things don' have to be logical with God.  We want things to make sense.  Its hard for us to imagine things are just random.  Its hard for us to imagine that things do not have a deeper meaning.  Its why we believe in God.

I do not know if a God exists or if he cares about me or anyone.  But when my life is upside down.  Believing in one is a comforting thing.

God Bless,

D

alternate realities

One thing I think about frequently is alternate realities.  What if we had made different choices in our lives? Where would we be?  How would we be different?  Who would we be? 

What if I had decided to live in another part of the world?
What if I had studied a different subject in school?
What if I had never had a child?
What if I had lived more selfishly?
What if I made different decisions with the relationships?
What if I had a different personality?

How would my life be different?  Where would I be?  Would I be happier?  What is happiness and how important is it?  Why do we often sacrifice our happiness for other people's?  Why cant we all just be selfish?  Wouldn't this make the world a fairer place?

Life could easily have gone dramatically different in countless ways.  One little decision here, one different perspective there.  The tricky thing about life is although we can always make a change, we can never undo what we have done.  Fortunatly, we aren't often held to decisions we make for eternity because we can always modify afterwards.  But make no mistake, everything we do now affects the future in an interpersonal world.   The past is written. The present is the gift of choice and is subject to change and open to interpretation. The future is at stake.

There is no reset button.   The future is in your hands.  Today.

making choices

How do we make difficult choices in life?  Iv found that the best way is to face difficult choices with courage and honesty at all times even when very hard.

We also need to look out for ourselves since no one else will take care of us like we can.  No one knows our real circumstances in life like we do.  Thus, no one is better qualified to make your difficult choices for you.  But in order to trust our choices as being the good one, the fair one, the right one, we must be as honest as humanly possible with those around us who are affected by our choices as much as we are honest with ourselves.

Merry Christmas 2016
