“What is the meaning of life?” is a question that comes from a mind that feels lost. Life imitates art far more than art imitates Life. Everyone has their own path and what makes them unique and special. No one can be better in being you than you ”because no one has your history, your genes, your parents, experiences or failures. It is up to you what you make of it. And sometimes you may feel lost, confused, sad, angry, depressed, maybe even desperate. Desperate to feel better…desperate to feel dead…desperate to feel alive…desperate to feel anything other than your grief and pain.
There are various situations of grief and loss. Each person has an expertise in whatever loss they have faced. But you can’t always immerse yourself in these emotions. You should get you breath back, and find peace, comfort, love and hope. Do not dwell in the past, do not dream of the future, concentrate the mind on the present moment.

8.About ten years ago when I was an undergraduate in college, I was working as an intern at my University’s Museum of Natural History. One day while working at the cash register in the gift shop, I saw an elderly couple come in with a little girl in a wheelchair.
As I looked closer at this girl, I saw that she was kind of perched on her chair. I then realized she had no arms or legs, just a head, neck and torso. She was wearing a little white dress with red polka dots.
As the couple wheeled her up to me I was looking down at the register. I turned my head toward the girl and gave her a wink. As I took the money from her grandparents, I looked back at the girl, who was giving me the cutest, largest smile I have ever seen.
All of a sudden her handicap was gone and all I saw was this beautiful girl, whose smile just melted me and almost instantly gave me a completely new sense of what life is all about. She took me from a poor, unhappy college student and brought me into her world; a world of smiles, love and warmth.
That was ten years ago. I’m a successful business person now and whenever I get down and think about the troubles of the world, I think about that little girl and the remarkable lesson about life that she taught me.
9.A youngster went to visit an old wise man.
He asked the wise man, “How can I become a person who can make myself and others happy?”
The wise man looked at him and said. “My son, you’re one in a thousand to have such an aspiration at this age. I give you four sentences. The first sentence is to regard you as others. Can you explain its meaning? ”
The youngster replied, ” That is to say, when I feel distressed, regard myself as others, so that I will reduce the distress naturally; when I’m ecstatic , regard myself as others, the ecstasy will become placid.”
The wise man nodded slightly and went on, ” The second is to regard others as you.”
The youngster thought for a while and said,” In this way you may truly sympathize with others’ misfortune, understand the others’ requirements and give them proper help when they need.”
The wise man’s eyes glowing, he continued, “The third is to regard others as others.”
The boy said.” It means that we should fully respect each person’s independence and can never infringe their core territory in any case.”The wise man laughed. ” Very well. The fourth is to regard you as yourself. It is too hard for you to understand, so keep it for you to taste it slowly in future.”

People who know this truth very well will understand that: There is no so-called ‘losing’, but it is just’going through’. There is no so-called ‘failure’ either, but it is just ‘experience’. When you look upon life with an exploring and seeking heart, all the gains and losses with implicit or explicit meanings to you are beautiful sceneries and charming experiences.
17.Many people feel unhappy in life. They may all have this problem. That’s they always make themselves live elsewhere,and always make themselves live in the future or immerse in the past. That’s it!

20.Remember that not one of us is without sin.
21.Every morning, you are defining how your life would be like. No, I’m not saying the clichethat every morning you have the chance to make a different decision. What I’m suggesting is that how you choose to live your morning speaks a lot about how you choose to live your life. There are people who choose to get out of the bed in the last minute and grab whatever they can get to eat or even give up breakfast all together. These people are choosing to make their lives failures, because apparently they have no idea how to make solid plans and make life organized. There are another kind of people who choose to make every morning in order. They get up relatively early and can finish a lot of things before they go to work. That makes the whole day way easier for them and make them more productive in the office. Yes, how you live your morning does speak a lot about how you live your life. Don’t underestimate it.
