Purpose

15 Jul

Sometimes I wonder if I move far away where no one knows me would it be better? To start a new life and have a clean slate. To bury my most painful memories and have a new identity. People around me think they know me but do they really? Besides the basic things, my favorite food, color, music, movie; can they really say they know what makes me tick? What makes me sad, angry, happy, vulnerable? Too many times I have put myself out there and for what to get hurt? Someone once told me I must like pain because of the situations I put myself in sometimes. Maybe this is true but I feel it’s time to move on from the pain. I want to bury certain memories. Some of the memories are lucid but many are indelibly printed on the brain, usually the ones you want to erase. But these memories is an image, and each image is like a thread, and each thread is woven together to make a tapestry of intricate designs and textures. And that tapestry tells a story and that story is our past.

But than I remember this is what made me strong in the first place. Pain and struggle is what makes every thing make sense at the end of it all. You must feel a certain purpose once you made it through the turmoil. I’m struggling to find that purpose right now and feel like I’m muddling knees deep in quick sand. But when I look up and see past the dark covering of the trees, I see sunshine seeping through and this is what keeps me going. This might not make sense to some but to most who is struggling to find their purpose should understand the feeling of being lost. It’s not about anyone but yourself and this part of life you must walk alone. But the journey can be short if you can just find your purpose…..

A few of my favorite quotes that get me thru s***

Look at life as an energy economy game. Each day, ask yourself, Are my energy expenditures (actions, reactions, thoughts, and feelings) productive or nonproductive? During the course of my day, have I accumulated more stress or more peace?–unknown

Don’t cry because its over, smile because it happened.

God, if I can’t have what I want, let me want what I have.– unknown

Keith Ellis, Bootstraps
Like the elephant, we are unconscious of our own strength. When it comes to understanding the power we have to make a difference in our own lives, we might as well be asleep. If you want to make your dreams come true, wake up. Wake up to your own strength. Wake up to the role you play in your own destiny. Wake up to the power you have to choose what you think, do, and say.

 

Brian Dyson, CEO of Coca Cola Enterprises from 1959-1994
Imagine life as a game in which you are juggling five balls in the air. You name them – work, family, health, friends, and spirit – and you’re keeping all of these in the air. You will soon understand that work is a rubber ball. If you drop it, it will bounce back. But the other four balls – family, health, friends, and spirit are made of glass. If you drop one of these, they will be irrevocably scuffed, marked, nicked, damaged, or even shattered. They will never be the same. You must understand that and strive for balance in your life.

A friend is one who knows us, but loves us anyway. — Fr. Jerome Cummings

Remember, the greatest gift is not found in a store nor under a tree, but in the hearts of true friends. — Cindy Lew

 

One loyal friend is worth ten thousand relatives.”
— Euripides (408 B.C.)

 

“Love is rarer than genius itself. And friendship is rarer than love.” — Charles Peguy

 

In the End, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends.
-Martin Luther King, Jr. (1929-1968)  

 

Morrie Schwartz, in “Tuesdays with Morrie” by Mitch Albom
So many people walk around with a meaningless life. They seem half-asleep, even when they’re busy doing things they think are important. This is because they’re chasing the wrong things. The way you get meaning into your life is to devote yourself to loving others, devote yourself to your community around you, and devote yourself to creating something that gives you purpose and meaning.

 

Fr. Alfred D’Souza
For a long time it had seemed to me that life was about to begin — real life. But there was always some obstacle in the way. Something to be got through first, some unfinished business, time still to be served, a debt to be paid. Then life would begin. At last it dawned on me that these obstacles were my life.

 

 The only love worthy of a name is unconditional.
-John Powell

 

The state of your life is nothing more than a reflection of your state of mind.
-Dr. Wayne W. Dyer

 

Anthony J. D’Angelo, The College Blue Book
Promise yourself to live your life as a revolution and not just a process of evolution.

 

To all my lost men out there

29 Jul

Something that I wrote years back but still can be applied till this day. Hope you enjoy!!

There is a man out there so sad and alone
 He chose to live his life like this because he has no where to go
There are so many opportunity out there for him but he will never learn  
Stubbornness is his down fall   
 Once he was happy fill with life
Now he always thinks about ending his life
He doesn’t want anyone help because he wants to be a man
But deep down  inside he knows he needs a helping hand  
Many people past and go in his life but there are only a few that really touch his heart
Now those same people are gone, he is once again alone
His mind plays cruel games with him, knowing his heart wants to love
But his mind says no your going to stay in misery because you dont know the meaning of love  
 Maybe one day he will come back to reality
 His spirit will come back and realize all the wrong he done
But until that day he stays in a dark place
Because now all his doing is making a big mistake
