Life is beautiful because…

Life is beautiful because… some people care about others.

Yesterday a friend helped me. Today I helped two little kids on the train, and they are not related to me.

Caring, does that give meaning to life or just distracts us from our sorrows? What gives meaning to your life? What would give meaning to your life?

Life is beautiful cuz I have a chance to live it.

I have been given huge blessings, and even in the bad hands I was dealt, I am able to find the blessing within it.

Currently I have been blessed with many new, loving, healthy friends.

I have been blessed with a new home.

I have been blessed with the opportunity to interview for my dream job, and reconnect with some old work associates.

I have been blessed with a mature, responsible, respectable and loving daugther, who was able to get ready for her first day of school in four minutes and STILL manage to have a good day. This daughter has a musical gift that makes me cry when she plays.

I have been blessed with enough stuff going wrong that I was able to grow, learn and come out a stronger and wiser person.

I have been blessed with decent health, a pretty smile, beautiful eyes and a generous heart.

I could go on, the blessings are endless and I am eternally grateful.

I couldn't narrow it down to one thing, short of saying that the opportunity to live is what gives my life meaning.

thank you for this thread.

Thank You, Rising!! Im so glad for you! I feel like I know you!?…

Anyway, Im struggling to find this gratitude you have about life. No significant other, no children, dealing with depression, no dream job other than I enjoy much of my work. Well, thats just a backdrop to say that if I still find some meaning in life, life must be beautiful.

I think life is beautiful when I can look forward to the next thing I want to do in life. Then chores arent an automated mode, theyre a means to get somewhere. If I just do what I have to do and dont look ahead to what I will be able to reach, life is meaningless. I learned much of that with my nephew and niece. They always have a full agenda. So having a goal really gives purpose and meaning to life to me.

Life is beautiful because…. I am me. I am who I choose to be. I can make my own decisions.

Sounds a bit conceited doesn't it. I have to struggle w/ believing that, but I tell myself that.

I think yes that doing good things for others will have blessings poured onto you down the road. I agree it does distract you from your own sorrows,and I feel that sometimes that is what we need to learn to heal ourselves. A smile for someone else will bring a light to their world. A smile from someone else will bring light into your world.

Sini, you stand tall and be proud of who you are. I think you're great. I send you a smile today. Several to be honest. Thanks for this thread.

*The sun is shinning today.

*I have HP, kitty and good & kind friends on AAC.

*I rejoice when I help others despite my own sorrows. I also rejoice when I pray for others, esp. friends even if there is no communication between us. I entrust them HP to deal with them.

* Sin started this smart thread so that we can focus on optimistic positive things in our life, despite our agonies.

More to come later dear folks!~Ras~

Sini – how are you?

Life is beautiful because we can make it whatever we want it to be. We choose the people in our lives, our attitudes, and every day is a new beginning with a thousand new opportunities.

My life is beautiful because:
I have family and friends who love me.
I have a nice house and a nice car
A great successful career
My health
A strong sense of self
Many wonderful memories
I have been fortunate to have traveled a lot.
I try to live life with honesty, kindness and genuine caring for others.

((((Hugs to you all)))

And to borrow a lyric from U2…

It's a beautiful day, don't let it get away!

I'm home after being "on the road" for a year and a half. Woke up in my own bed with my husband of sixteen and a half years – and of course… all three dogs!

Going to lounge on MY OWN sofa for a while…

Love and peace to all,

Z.

Today I am invited to a pool party given by some clients. I designed the project and to me, it is so great to see the end result. Especially when I get to see it being enjoyed by them, their friends and family. What I do improves the quality of life for other people and that is very gratifying and gives meaning to my life.

Life is beautiful because of the little children. They always know what to say and do to make people feel good about themselves. They have not yet been corupt and have yet to learn how to truly hurt others.

Life is beautiful because of you.
