What's Really Important In Life?
The Little Things
July 14, 2004
When I grow up, I want to be rich and famous. I want to have a huge beautiful house. I want to have all the money in the world. I want to want for nothing.
I know I'm all grown up now. I want to leave, to run, and to live my own life. I want my parents to let me be, I know what I'm doing. I want my friends to be the most important things in my life. I want to live life fast, and relax later.
I want to live life by my own rules. I want to have everything now, no matter the consequences. I want to be left alone. I want to live in the here and now, and worry about the future later.
AGE 24 |
I know I have a lot of growing up to do. I want to listen to advice from others. I want to stop in the middle of Mother Nature, and take in the beauty of it all. I want fulfill the promises I made to those loved ones who have passed. I want to make my family the most important part of my life, for they have always been there. I want to live life, so that when I die, people rejoice, for mine was a life lived.
I want my loved ones to know how sorry I am for the way I was. I want to slow down, and enjoy every second, because so many do not. I want to see those loved ones at the beginning of life, grow, and make their way. I want to remember my past, but live in the present and for the future. I want to make a difference in this world. I want to be here, stand back, and enjoy the 'The Little Things' in life.
The true measure of success, is measured by lives you touch, and those who touch yours.

This seems to best explain who I once was, and who I have become. It's about spiritual harmony obtained.
