The Secrets of Life … and Humans

 

Or is it the Mystery of Life? What is the meaning of life? What is the purpose? You only live once, so live it well?

I don’t think there is a true answer to any question when it comes to life aside from live it, and live it well. Who really knows. We all wonder and contemplate what is the meaning of life and the secret to life. It could vary from person to person and what they believe.

To be perfectly honest, of all the species I think humans make life a lot more complicated and frustrating than it really is. However, on the other side of things, I think we also make it the most fulfilling. What other living creature has the amount craziness, drama, happiness, sadness, stress, anxiety, structure, laws.. (this list is endless) all wrapped up in one day?  And on the positive to all that, what other living creature as lived in this world like humans have? We have literally destroyed this world but at the same time, in ways, have made it better, have LIVED in this world. We have invented ways to discover the world like no other. It’s just sad that in order to better ourselves, our lives and our ‘world’ we have to destroy it.

We are all striving to live in this world, succeed and most of to help save the world, but let’s be honest for a moment.

Take a step back and look at your life and look at what you are doing to better yourself/your life and compare it with what you are doing to better the world?

And I just realized how hypocritical I am. But am I? This world isn’t structure to put the world first. Humans made it to put ourselves first in order to make it and to live here. Yes you can break free of that structure and live by how society tells you and I applaud those that have done that. It’s probably one of the hardest things that anyone could ever do.

So what is the secret to it? The secret to living that fulfilling life and finding happiness?

I think it’s discovering who you truly are, what it truly means to be human and taking nothing for granted when it comes to relationships with your family, friends and your relationship with the world and future generations.

What do you think it is?

If only I could offer more …

First and foremost, before I blog about this;

My deepest sympathy goes towards all the families and friends who were so terribly involved with the shootings in Newtown. Words just cannot express how horrible this tragedy was and I truly hope, pray, wish whatever … that the families and friends are able to find strength in their loved ones and find peace in their hearts. I really wish there was something I could do. If anyone reading this knows someone who was unfortunate to lose a loved one – my heart, prays, thoughts are with you.

There is a big Hoax out right now about a quote from Morgan Freeman (please note, it was not said by Morgan Freeman, nor do I know who said it) But the thing is, they said it pretty darn well. My co-worker and I were having that exact conversation about how the media glorifies the villain. It is true. The media makes such a big deal about the person who did it – huge catchy headlines fill our news reports and papers. They even get nicknames and become ‘famous’. Someone who is mentally unstable and so upset enough to do such heinous crimes, usually struggles with the feeling of not being loved/unwanted/unrecognized so why not make yourself known. There are always copycats or someone trying to out do someone else. Here in Canada we recently had a man dismember someone else. After that there were 3 (that I heard of) dismemberment’s.

Tragedies will always happen. It’s an unfortunate reality in our world. Stop glorifying it. Stop making the villain to be someone to remember. Remember the children. Focus on that and pay no attention to the person who does it. THEY DON’T DESERVE our attention. Mental state or not. I am not saying hate them or ignore the sadness that it brought to their family. Because even the villains have loved ones too that have to deal with the fact that their loved one did such a crime and died as well (in some cases died)

The problem isn’t necessarily gun control. Yes, I am sure if there were stricter laws that most incidents wouldn’t happen or be quite severe. But it’s still the person. The mental state they are in when it happens. Focus on Mental Health Issues, focus on security, focus on not glorifying the villains.

Lack of gun control wasn’t the reason behind the stabbings in China the exact same day as the shootings in Newtown. Anyone hear about that? No, it wasn’t blasted all over the news quite like the happenings in Newtown. But a man stabbed almost 20 children there. I don’t know the details of the story so do not quote me on my facts. I do not know if anyone died. I hope everyone is OK.

I could blog for a long time about this tragedy. I wish I could say a lot. But words just cannot explain what I am feeling, what the world is feeling and most importantly – what the families and friends that are feeling during this time.

Focus on the victims. Remember them.

Again, my thoughts and prayers go out to every family member and friends of the ones that were lost on Friday. Remember the amazing time you had with them and all the smiles they brought to you. Find it in your heart, your friends and family the strength that you CAN and WILL make it through this hard time. The whole world is behind you

This is where it all began …

I have had multiple blog sites over the many years since the Internet was born. Some I kept up for quite awhile, while others dwindled off like Tiffany’s career. Whether or not this particular blog will be successful,well much like my web page title states – it’s debatable.

I am going to dedicate this blog to not only my life’s conundrums, experiences and adventures that may be relatable, but also to my opinions and thoughts that may just be debatable.

Maybe I can find the answers to my conundrums, or find the words to express how I am feeling, but in it all I really hope to entertain some stranger on the other side of the wireless internet wave,and who knows, maybe inspire them.

Here’s hoping for all of the above.
