Rainy Saturday – pondering “The Meaning of Life”

Studying today it is so rainy outside.  Decided to take a quick break before taking a quiz and thought about a conversation yesterday.  What is the meaning of life?  There are many takes on this question and depending on your religion or upbringing, ethnicity, culture, or maybe even your geographic location…the answers differ.  I don’t pose to have the answer, I have my thoughts that I try to apply to me that tend to keep me on the straight and narrow for the most part…(a little bit of faith is incorporated into my thought process).  I do believe that the life here on this planet is way to short to live it unhappy.  Pursuing your goals and achieving some of your objectives does give you a sense of accomplishment and purpose.  Having dreams to aspire to leaves you with a small sense that there is a reason you are here but in my case….is my meaning of life to make it to the beach permanently and have that Big “A” boat I dream of daily?  I love the beach and for any of you that have read any of my blog, that is OBVIOUS!  So…..deep thoughts by CupCake today??? IDK it’s rainy and very quiet, feeling a bit philosophical at the moment.  My aspiration is to have a positive impact on all the lives that I touch, and leave them with more (in a positive way) than when I met them….not sure how often I accomplish that or if anyone sees me in that aspect, here lately I tend to be the needy one and that is not how I like to perceive myself.

Plenty of changes occur in everyone’s life regularly, some of these changes appear as challenges, some as dreams coming true.  My opinion is how do you react to the challenges (a.k.a. opportunities) and the dreams…in other words what do you do next.  Do you sit back and let life happen to you, or are you the one who is making life happen for you and for others?  I must say I have become a bit passive in my reaction to things and may actually be letting life HAPPEN to me….not the approach I want to take, I want to MAKE IT HAPPEN!  (yes I have that t-shirt, LOL) so time for the internal pep talk (CupCake to CupCake) to pull up my boot straps and make some decisions.  LIFE IS TOO SHORT – but I am going to make the most of it!!!


By the way – – I am not competitive at all.  (Buahahahahah – that is such a lie!)

Happy Rainy Saturday!
