Go Enjoy Your Life, Cause There're People Fighting Like Hell For It

Last Update: September 04, 2018

This morning I read an article from CNN about a 21 old girl who died because of her illness, Claire Wineland.

Wineland was born with Cystic Fibrosis, an incurable disease.
You can learn more about her on the internet.

She became an inspiration for me, she has accomplished so much at such a young age that it put me to shame.

And being able to be who she is, knowing she's gonna die is incredible.

Note: the title is not from me, it's from one of her quote.

A Lesson Of Life

"Life isn't just about being happy.
It's not about how you feel second to second. It's about what you're making of your life and whether you can find a deep pride in who you are and what you're given."

This quote is one of the reason that push me to write this post. It resonnates so much to me, I have to share it.

People think too much and care too much about how to become rich and wealthy. When life is not about money and happiness.

It's all about YOU, what do you want to do of your life, what is the main reason of your life?
Being able to help people in need and being able to motivate people is so satisfying and make you so proud of yourself.

Money is nothing without a purpose that you can be proud of, that can bring you joy.
If you want to have a decent life for the rest of your time on earth, 2 or 3 millions is largely enough.

I can't understand what all these millionaires and billionaires are making with their money. What is the satisfaction to have all this money in your bank account if you do nothing with it to make this world a better place.

You're not rich because you're smarter than anybody else, you're just lucky to be born at the right time and right place. That's All.

A homeless kid with dirty clothes in the street of a poor country is not a stupid kid, it's just an unlucky kid who perhaps just need a little help.

Be humble and thankful for the life you have because Life can take everything back from you anytime.

Go Enjoy Your Life, Cause There're People Fighting Like Hell For It

And enjoy your time doing what you're doing here at WA or somewhere else.
Sometimes we all have doubts, however, if you're here, you have everything to build something you can be proud of.

Because at WA you're not alone, you have a fantastic community of persons who are willing to help you.

It will take time, sometimes you will fell useless, but, you know you're on the right way.

Thank you for sharing. We take so much for granted. Sometimes we don't even bother to smile at a stranger, a stranger is just a friend you do not know yet. I do make it a point to, "Stop and smell the roses".

Thanks for taking the time to leave a comment.

There're a lot of things we don't do and enjoy anymore. And it's a shame.
Today we don't talk directly to people anymore, but with our phones, even when we're in the same place and the same table.

It's crazy. I like technology, yet, not when it affects our life that way.

You are so right Calvin. What happened to those days where kids would get together for some ball. Now it is played on some tech device. Technology is good but it does rob people from that personal involvement. All the best to you my friend.

Thank you for sharing, Calvin. I'm with you, be the best you can be every day. It is a lot like the saying I have heard so often, "stop to smell the roses".

Pleasure is mine.

I also like this saying, "stop and smell the roses", for me it's the same as "stop and have a coffee":)

Our time on earth is limited, for some we can even say short.
Enjoying it, it's important.
