What is this life I lead all about? I wonder how many generations over thousands of years have asked themselves the same question. Somehow I always picture life being a little simpler for those who lived their lives in the many generations before me.
I don’t truly believe that life was easy for any one generation compared to another. Yesterday I spent 6 hours building a Google Chrome computer system. I have pretty much mastered Windows and Mac systems but the Chrome system had a big learning curve and I ended up doing more studying than actual building. I know that just one generation before mine didn’t have to deal with such things, but there were always other things that needed to learned before mastering. Many things change over time, but the one thing that doesn’t change is the fact that we have all had to deal with the difficulties of our times.
That cycle of life starts off so slowly then time seems to move increasingly faster as the years go by. Question now arise as things I have never thought about when I was a younger man. What legacy am I leaving behind and is it even that important to leave behind a legacy? The dreams I have lived with in my soul, have they been fulfilled? Am I living a life well lived where most days have brought me to the point of feeling that passion so deep down inside of me? Have I made the right decisions to help out other people here on planet earth?
Although I am just 56 years and plan on living many more years, there is still those thoughts of death as I see so many friends and loved one’s passing without a clue as to why. So the big question is – Am I living a life worth living? Yes, I believe that I am.
There are so many things I still have planned for the future and my dreams are still alive and I am discovering ways to fulfill those dreams. Yes, life can certainly be challenging, but it can also be all so wonderful. It really is about the small things and not the major events. It is never about the things we own, but rather the time we spend. Yea, I choose to always spend more on time than on things. Time well spent brings about the true treasures that I hold so dear.
