The Essence of everything that matters

29 February 2012, 08:13
What matters to us most in life, is it wealth, health, happiness, power, pleasure or pain???

Well for me the only thing that matters is being able to get up every morning, breathing, because there are many others that are not as lucky, so every morning I get up and say damn I am the luckiest guy in the world.

We tend to devalue the small things and add value to things like a higher salary a promotion, instead of just being happy to have a job, getting a salary being able to pay the rent or put food on the table. These are things we need to be grateful for, because tomorrow it might all be gone.

Family??? hmmm how many times have you not wanted to hide away from that, the people that love you the most are also the people that can sometime embarrass you, what do you do if they do (Mouthful I know) well you just get on with it as if it never happen, cause I for one love my family, don’t really care that they can sometime do things i do not approve of, cause there is one of the few things that you can’t choose that is FAMILY, appreciate them cause they not always going to be there.

In the most important essence of everything that matters is you, appreciate yourself cause there is no one else like you, no one else with the same finger prints the same smile the same emotions, so today go out and spoil yourself a bit, cause YOU have the right to be YOU!!!

Bloodlust

This man had a mother. A father. He was perhaps a brother, a friend, a lover. This man had a purpose. He had a dream. He had a life. He had laughter and love and hope waiting for him. Read more...

Many conclude that Yemen is yet another step towards the cataclysmic sectarian war and , quite possibly, the trigger that leads the region to this ultimate battle. I, for one, can find no reason not to hold a similar position. Read more...
