What are we all really striving for in life? Is it money? is it health? is it time? I've been wondering about this since times really suck right now for just about everyone - economically speaking of course. Sure, having money helps a whole lot to make life easier but at the end of the day, what is that we all really hope to accomplish?
The other day, I was talking to a neighbor about the economy and he starts bragging about what a great credit score he has on his record and I thought to myself -so what?! At the end of the day, who the hell is really going to care. Sure, you can go buy a house or a car or something material but I'mtalking about life here, people!
It makes you think when you get a phone call that someone you love has cancer or when you hear of a 17-year old killing himself, it makes you wonder, what the hell are we all strving for?
You and I both know that at the end of the day we can't take any of our material things with us. Not our cell phones, our homes, or our cars, so what should we strive for?
Personally, I think we should strive to be better people, better individuals. We should strive to make the world a better place, even if it's only a tiny grain of salt. We should strive to love one another, as cliche as that sounds, it's true. We are on this earth for a reason and it's certainly not to see who can manage to have the best credit score!
If everyone did just a little bit of good everyday, it would be such a bettter place.
Sure, bad things are going to happen but ultimately, I think that's what life is about. Learning to deal with the good and especially the bad, so we can become better people. It's learning to overcome the challenges we are faced with, so that we can grow, emotionally.
