When I was in my early teen years my church came out with a video about "The Purpose of Life". After all the people gave their interpretation of this statement, it all boiled down to The purpose of life is - To Live Life Happily.
Each of us have our own version of what a "happy life" is. To one it might be to travel the world doing important things for important people, to another it may be to live quietly among family and friends. For me, my version of living happily contains caring for and being cared for by those that are important to me in my life.
You may be wondering what this has to do with my monthly goals to better myself. Well, not much, but it has been on my mind recently. Have I been living my life to it's fullest happy potential?
I have actually been reading the scriptures daily. I realized that my life has not changed greatly in doing so. What I mean by that is that it is the little things that change. Calmer in stressful situations. Being able to notice the little blessings in my life more.
I have started up on the treadmill again. It has been good so far. I have also done a couple lengthy hikes. Admittedly I like the hiking a lot better than the treadmill, but outdoors always trumps indoors for me.
Book Club starts this week. I am sure there are those of you thinking "Book Club" your putting this in your social life section? Yes, yes I am. This has been a goal of mine for a while. To get a random group of people together that don't know each other, and see how our lives intertwine in the reading of Jane Austen. LOL. I know, I'm a nerd!
