happiness is …

“Happiness  can be defined, in part at least, as the fruit of the desire and ability to sacrifice what we want now for what we want eventually.”  Steven Covey

life with meaning

“MIDWAY upon the journey of our life

   I found myself within a forest dark,

   For the straightforward pathway had been lost.”  Dante

Suddenly one day after many days, many months or even many years you wake up and you find that you are lost.   Where did the path of life go?   This is not familiar ground that you are walking on.   In that moment all that was important before loses meaning.   In that moment there is a sense of being lost.   In that moment the heart is beating faster, breathing has quickened and you are waiting for something, but what is that something?

A moment of fright that all the days that have passed thus far have been days that were without meaning.   What is life without meaning and purpose?   That question ricochets around in the mind and the heart.   What is the answer?

Chuck Swindoll writes,  “We are all faced with a series of great opportunities brilliantly disguised as impossible situations.”


 What meaning are you bringing to your life?
