What do you have in your life that no one can steal? What do you have in your life that no one can take away? What do you have in your life that keeps you a float when all is taken away? What do you have in your life that allows you to smile, when actually there is nothing left to smile about? What do you have today that no one can take away tomorrow?
Why do I ask these question of yourself and myself?
Life will throw us curve ball and pull that rug from under our feet sooner or later it will! So, what do we have that make us prepared for those moments? What are we doing today that leaves us strong for some of the pains in life that will come to all of us, and other pains that might come to some of us. What are we putting into your life that will leaves us standing, even when nothing is left standing for ?
I think it so important to prepare for life, even those unpredictable events. I know it sounds crazy, but actually, If we look at our life, our jobs, etc, there are signs that are providing us warnings. We are forewarned, it is in the air, we just have to listen. And, we should be prepared. Even, if you look at your own life, it has prepared you for some of the hardships in life, just think about it a bit.
I have chosen the feature picture of a tortoise, why? He carries with him everything he needs. Are we cultivating our life in such away that we have inside us to carry on when all is taken away? Can we still smile and make others smile?
Along with these question, I have selected a few quotes that may help find an answer to these questions? I provide some of my answers below, and it would be lovely to have you comment below, for all of us to learn from your wisdom, experiences and thoughts on these questions.
So, incase some of you want to know my answers to some of these questions, here you go. This is just a small list as a taster. The answers a brief and not detailed, but if you want to me expand then let me know in the comments. What are your answers to these questions do comment below.? Of Course I don’t have my life sorted, I am a work in progress, and I have had that rug pulled from beneath my feet many a time, and I have cried many a time. But, all of these have helped me help myself when I had everyone but I had no-one at the same time ( I hope that makes sense)!
