What Life Is All About


life is not about accumulating wealth
but about making one's own dreams come true and 
having a clean bill of health...

life is not about the mistakes you made
but the lessons you have learned along the way
and the strength you have gained...

life is not about disappointments
it's just that some things are not meant to be
and there is such a thing called patience...

life is not about the people who put you down,
wait for you to stumble or don't have anything nice to say 
neither is it about those who wish for you to drown ...  

life is about the relationships you have built
and the people who truly care 
and those who encourage you to live to the hilt... 

 life is about faith
when things go wrong and you've got nothing else left
you know that God is all you need...

life is about being free to live, love and laugh
anyone who tramples on that basic right
does not deserve to stay in your life...

life is about rising above any adversity,
picking up the pieces and moving on graciously
after all, you've got only one life to live...

life is about learning how to count your blessings
and the true meaning of contentment
gratitude is the key to happiness- one that's real and permanent...

"life is about rising above any adversity,
picking up the pieces and moving on graciously
after all, you've got only one life to live..."
So true.. I may not accomplish this every day but I strive for it!
Thanks Bing

Bing (PinkLady) September 19, 2010 at 9:51 AM  

amanda, for most of us it is a continuing struggle. but what matters most is our desire to overcome whatever adversity that comes our way. :)

Being happy doesn't mean everything's perfect. It means you decide to see beyond the imperfections.


"Count your blessings. Once you realize how valuable you are and how much you have going for you, the smiles will return, the sun will break out, the music will play, and you will finally be able to move forward to the life that God intended for you with grace, strength, courage and confidence." ~ Og Mandino


If I could wish for my life to be perfect, it would be tempting, but I would have to decline, for life would no longer teach me anything.
