Our greatest happiness does not depend on the condition of life in which chance has placed us, but is always the result of a good conscience, good health, occupation, and freedom in all just pursuits.  (Thomas Jefferson)

Your condition is simply an objective of your life that can always be tweaked, you are placed in situations to gain from them and learn to live.  As I always state everything happens for a reason, but that doesn’t mean you can’t transform your situation to make the conditions better suited for yourself.  If you are unhappy with your life, then you must alter it, you are responsible for your own happiness.

You are free to believe and achieve any and everything possible, there is no time to be idle every moment in time should be counted as a token of gold that cannot be replaced.  “To be idle is a short road to death and to be diligent is a way of life; foolish people are idle, wise people are diligent.” (Buddha)  Be wise and take advantage of the great things to be done with the people you love, life is so precious and time is even more valuable than thought of by most.

It is by chance that you are the person that you are, it is by chance that you have the friends that you have, it is by chance that you love others the way that you do.  Everything that you do has a probable outcome as a coin does, it can be good or bad for you.  You are individualized from birth to grant this world with something special.  Why not be an individual who wants to leave the best mark on earth possible, be remembered as a noble citizen?

According to answers.com one whom is noble is described as: “Having or showing qualities of high moral character, such as courage, generosity, or honor.”  Personally this doesn’t seem like a lot to ask for, but most people don’t know how to be generous to others, or how to show genuine courage.  “In this life we cannot do great things. We can only do small things with great love.”(Mother Teresa)  This statement is so deep on many levels, we expect things to be great and sometimes it is truly in the small gestures that we invest great love to that become the most memorable and meaningful.

Everyday I do small things to grant inspiration, to show love, to make others smile, and I do it all with great love.  Love truly conquers all, and loving thyself enough to put someone else before you is truly something special.  I have spent many days being selfish in my own ways, but I have learned that there is a bigger picture to be painted and this picture will never be complete unless I  allow for it to co-painted by others in my life.

It is just like volunteering, you do so in order to help others in need and not for monetary reasons.   When you volunteer your time for someone else’s benefit, you are doing a deed that may feel like it is not appreciated.  But in fact it is, in the gift of giving you should feel rewarded in the fact that you have done good and know that you will be blessed at god speed.  It was said by a noble man by the name of Friedrich Nietzsche: “We love life, not because we are used to living but because we are used to loving.”  Make loving 2nd nature to your habits, you should express acts of love to everyone around you it is something that shows genuine character and feels good to the soul.  Everyone should embrace the act of love as it is to a precious gift that can’t be brought.

If you want something you never had before, you’ve got to do something you have never done before. – Drina Reed
