We hear that unemployment rates are down. Where???? I don't see it here. It's frightening, very frightening. It worries me that there will be more 'jumpers', more people who just can't take anymore. Not that I am saying the man jumped the other day because he lost his job; I don't know that. I've found no information about him, but I did light a candle and say a prayer for him last night.
Life is so precious to me. I've suffered much...death, abuse, addiction...but I've always believed in life. It is a gift...a precious, wonderful gift that is to be treasured. Ever since the beginning of time, there have been human challenges, and few of us ever end up where we pictured ourselves 30 years ago. We all end up with surprises, detours, disappointments, and regrets, but we move on. We focus on our strengths and do not allow ourselves to be consumed with depression and sadness. The challenge is to learn about ourselves and who we really are for then we can use our mistakes,and misfortunes to connect with others, to understand, to grow. I think the following poem says it all...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.
