You know the previous two blogs really asked some deep questions,
“Where are you going to live?” And, “Why were you born?”
To complete the trilogy here is the third question,
“Is this what you had in mind?”
I think it is important that one inspect his life from time to time and ask himself,
“Is this what I had in mind?”
I think it was Socrates who said,
“An uninspected life is not worth living.”
One can easily lament that he or she is too busy making a living to take the time to see if they are actually living!
Isn’t this what all the modern conveniences are for… to save a person time? And yet we spend so much time trying to make the time-saving stuff work that it would have been easier to just do it the “old-fashioned way!”
Voltaire once said,
“We never live, we are always in the expectation of living.”
An interesting thought if I say so myself!
As one goes through the pace of their life, one must take a look and ask themselves if this is what they had in mind? Is this what you thought life would look like at that particular moment in time?
Well… maybe someday, right?
I was going to get into a long-winded description of those types of people who upset me the most, but it was the great Dr. Seuss who once said,
“Those that matter don’t mind, and those that mind, don’t matter!”
So, let’s just leave it at that.
But when it comes to one’s health, well-being, and the world they live in, is this what they had in mind? One must be able to confront and look, and I mean really confront what is, and see what actually is… is this it?
If so, welcome home!
If not, I would really like to listen to your ideas. Maybe we can help each other… wouldn’t that be something, two or more people sitting down, talking and bringing to life those ideas that we consider most important to the future of our species and the planet we find ourselves on at this time.
Interestingly enough it is only from such discourse- communication, fellowship, and understanding that we have any chance of surviving, and isn’t that what health and wellness are all about?
Please let me know if you would like to e-mail, or meet sometime to simply share ideas or your thoughts.
You know, in the beginning, we were simply a thought that through some effort and time manifested into what we consider ourselves today- a thought that came to life in a universe we all had a hand in creating!
