Life Is Short but You Can Make It Worthwhile


Quote of the day: 
In ordinary life we hardly realize that we receive a great deal more than we give, and that it is only with gratitude that life becomes rich.
-Dietrich Bonhoeffer


Life is short. These are three words that magnify our mortality-a silent reminder of nothing lasting forever...of silent moments of uncertainty and vagueness in our everyday lives. But the question to ask ourselves is this; if life is truly short as people say-then what are we doing to live and not just exist?

Shouldn't we be more worried that life isn't some video game where extra life exists, but in reality it's just one life -one you are gone there's no coming back. There's no reset button, or cheat, and certainly no rewind button.

In conclusion, it can be said that there is really no way to live, no life manual to read on how to live life and be happy. But I have learned that giving and helping is a sure way to be happy. It can be something simple as giving your time to your passion or to a cause, or making donations to help charities, or gardening, or baking, or cooking, or blogging -and a million and one other things.

Whenever you give your time to something positive, you find inner happiness always. And you get so much more in return.

In the end, life's short -yes, but do as much as you can to make it worthwhile.


Peace. Love.Light*

  3. Hehe, I like how you posted "Blogging" as one of the ways to give. It's easy to see blogging as just a way to while away time, or offload one's thoughts. But every now and then, I get messages that make me feel like I'm making some kind of positive impact. If a post elicits even a smile on someone's face, then I'm happy.

    Please come and teach me how to write short posts!!!!!

  43. Some days it is hard to be positive. It's worth working for, though.

    ReplyDelete
  44. i too think that there's a magic in giving rather than taking - maybe there's no immediate blessing - and when we give we should give unconditionally...

  46. That's so true. Giving is a gift to the giver, as you often receive much more than what you give in regards of blessings and happiness. I experienced it with volunteer work and those times I also got inner peace. My best.

  47. I try my best to live a full life. I don't think I am doing enough, but I will keep trying.
