How I did it: I have figured something important out. Please listen to me: the purpose of life is living it: gratefully and in a way that helps others (if you are Christian, like I am, I would add: living life gratefully and loving others is living to the glory of God). Here's the secret I promised: it is not about where you get, it's about who you become in the process. Life is not about being the richest person in the cemetery, it's about how many lives you touched and who you were.
Lessons & tips: Chill. Seriously. You don't have to have it all figured out. Don't box your life in with super-long-term goals. You don't know who you will be in six months. Be flexible. Have a general direction, but not unchangeable goals and dreams. Live in the moment and follow your heart, intuition and conscience. We see the world not as it is, but as we are. Good things will come your way when your way of seeing life changes.
Resources: PS: As a Christian, I believe that the Creator has forever reconciled the
world with Himself, and that we have nothing to fear, not even death
itself, because everything in life, be it good or bad, will eventually
contribute to His purposes. And his purposes are: a new human society, based on kindness, justice and beauty.
“Chill. Seriously.”..best advice ever! I don’t know when life became so complicated and sad.
I used to smile more often for no reason. So from now on: relax, smile and chill.
