Why are we here?
It’s a question I’ve often pondered.
Many wonder if life has meaning at all.
No one’s ever came back to tell us otherwise.
Often we never get anywhere.
Many times too late, we’re already there.
Perhaps we have everything right here, or not.
Will we ever even know?
Life is truly a journey.
Why then does it feel as though I’m caged?
That I’m running in cirlces, going no where fast.
I see in others, what I see in myself.
Why then, do I not see this flower?
Even though, it’s right under my nose.
Struggling to reach the top, just to get a bit of light.
Only to fade away when winters frost comes.
Then I realize, that the meaning of life has always been here.
Right under my nose, just waiting to be seen.
To live, to grow, to die, to be reborn again.
Is it that simple?
Why did this not click before?
Just like the flower, growth takes time.
Time that there isn’t much of.
That is why we’re reborn again.
Until we learn what we need.
Now I see with my own eyes.
Tears of the fallen, are many of cries.
Though sorrow they do feel.
Like the skin, it does peel.
Wine and moan, as they cover their face.
Struggling to climb back grace.
No one sees them, for they are shamed.
Their wild spirits, can not be tamed.

We’ve all heard that little Pun, “A little hard work never hurt anyone.” Yeah, but I bet those people who made that statement, didn’t know anything about the world that we know now.
We should work and enjoy that work. We should work hard but not over do it. Over doing it creates injury. Much like I have now.
Some of you know this, some of you don’t, but I have a Hernia. Doesn’t hurt,so I’m not really worried about it. I’ve also used it as an excuse to become lazy. No more.
Working hard feels great, many fitness trainers can attest to that. What doesn’t feel good, is working yourself so much that you’re exhausted at the end of the day. You know what I mean. Working 10-12 hour days, come home, then all you want to do is eat and slep.
If you workout too hard, you could end up getting a Hernia, or even a herniated disk in the spine. What about knee injury? What about hip injuries?
Even just plain hard work can cause injuries when you’re not careful. Depends on how fit you are and how active you are. This is why it’s important to work your way up at a pace you can handle.
How does this correlate to lessons in life? When we’re trying to become successful, people often work long hours, even swing shits, this puts unnecessary strain on the body. Take a break, take a step back. Let your body rest, or at least build up your endurance for such task.
Working harder, for longer hours, isn’t always better. That’s not getting you ahead. In fact, it may even be pushing you back, taking years off your life. There is a great quote……
“Work smarter, not harder.” Take that to heart.
Silly puns. Don’t even get me started on “The Lord Is My Shepherd.”
What are some of the puns that you’ve noticed are silly? What are your favorites? Some of them are actually funny jokes. Go ahead, make us laugh.
What is with companies and changing things on a consistent basis? Ever noticed that? That’s the reason why MySpace failed. That’s the reason why Facebook will fail if they aren’t careful.
But is change really good for us? Sometimes, people do actually change, many times for the better, but some times for the worse. We have to learn to make changes in our lives that are positive and not negative.
First off, what are positive changes? Positive Changes are changes that make us a better person. That make us stronger. Even if at first they seem negative. One might experience a majestic view that allows us to be inspired. That’s a good change.
What about a negative change? Negative Changes are those that change us for the worse. It could be a change that sends us into shock, then into anger. It could be a change that happens within and causes us to have a sickness. Which can be both bad or good changes.
But how can we control changes in our lives? I’ll admit, you won’t be able to physically change everything that happens in your life, but you can change a lot of things. For example, if you’re on the road to gaining wait, change it. Make it a positive change for the better.
But how? Ok, I’m getting there. Ever heard the quote, “Change first happens within.?” That’s where you have to start. Within. Here’s what I mean by that.
In order to change us, we have to first change our subconscious. Our subconscious, is what controls every little thing in our lives. Our subconscious, is what determines if we fail or not. If we can reprogram our subconscious, nothing will hold us back.
One way to reprogram your subconscious, is to stop thinking negative thoughts. Quit blaming outside things for your problems. For example, don’t blame the economy for you having no job. This is something that I recently struggled with. Instead, tell yourself that it is possible, and you can make money, even in a bad economy.
My plan is to travel all over Europe and share my experiences with others. One way I’m doing that, is through Facebook. Live the life you want. In order to do that, you must change your current life. Now, get to it.
What are some other ways that you can use to help make positive changes in your life?
There are various reasons on why Writers do what they do. Can you think of a few? A popular reason to Write/Blog is to learn.
Learn about what? Again, there are various things to learn about. One of the main reasons I write is to learn about myself and to share my experiences with others.
What is the real reason we write though? Could it be something else entirely? What about Inspiration?
I’m not talking about getting inspiration for your own gain. I’m talking about inspiring others to do something different. Maybe you inspire others to write on their own blogs more often?
Looking from the outside in, readers will most likely say that Writers write to entertain. While that may be true to an extent, there is more than one way to look at it. Inspiration is one of the greatest gifts of Humanity.
It doesn’t matter whether or not you are Religious or not, it’s still a gift. We’re here to inspire others to do better, to get things done, to acknowledge who they are.
The fact that Inspiration is a big part of today’s life, we can’t really live without it. We’re inspired by others to do certain things, Run, Write, Read, Stay Healthy, all sorts of things. It’s become such a huge part of our life, that you can’t deny the fact this is the main reason we write.
The comments we receive, the ones telling us that we’ve inspired someone to write, or the ones telling us that our articles are better than their, can be somewhat encouraging. Thus, in turn, people inspire us to write even more. Inspiration is here to stay.
I do believe that we as writers should inspire, especially when people come to us and tell us that our articles are way better than theirs. Give back to your readers through inspiration and they’ll keep coming back to you.
What are some reasons your like to write, other than inspiration?
There are many things that are necessary for Humans to exist. Touch, Feeling, Experience, Love, but what about Communication? We all need it to exist, but are you getting enough of the right kind?
Stem Cells…..Upon the moment of Conception, a Human Being starts to develop. But, what many people don’t stop to think about is the fact that how many Stem Cells it takes to get the job done. From day one, Stem Cells are working inside the Human to be, simply to make it all possible.
Millions of Stem Cells are required to get this massive job done. Imagine, Millions of little things, working together, communicating on a scale that is unprecedented in all of the Human History. We’re talking about communication on a level that is hard to even imagine.
What’s so special about this? The communication that takes place in order to tell which group of Stem Cells becomes the Heart, which group becomes the Brain, which group becomes the Liver, and so on. If you really think about it, it’s mind boggling.
So, here’s my dilemma. If these Millions of Stem Cells can work together to create a human, with no physical errors, or any major physical errors. Then why is it that two Humans often have a hard time communicating? More specifically, the Male/Female relationships?
You always see people ignoring each other, neither one wanting to sway to one side, some even throwing stuff, while others merely just avoid the situation all together. Seriously? What’s the big deal?
Someone, please explain this to me. Chances are, you probably can’t.
Still, It’s food for the thought. Enjoy.
