I am many things. A mom, a nurse, a lifelong learner are just a few of my titles. You could say I was a philosopher being I spend much of my time thinking about the meaning of life. I have come to the conclusion that the meaning of life is love. With love all things are possible.

I endeavor to assist others (and myself) to understand just how precious they are. Not because of what they do or do not do. Just because they exist. We are all uniquely individual and as such, priceless.

Many things in life may teach us differently. But it is very important to remember that we are priceless just the way we are. No one can take this from you. No one can make you feel less, unless you let them.

We all have doubts and insecurities. Life teaches each of us that we are not perfect. The thing of it is, we are perfect for where we are in life. This doesn’t mean that we could not stand a little improvement in one area or another. It just means that we all try our best with what we are given.

Writing helps me to understand my life better. What I write, I do not write for just you. I write it for myself also. Many times I write about things I need to remember. We are all special. We are all priceless. We are all in this whirly-gig callled life together.

I can not stress enough the importance of building others up instead of tearing them down. That old saying, “If you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything”, is as true today as it was when I first heard my mother say it. We exist to love each other.

Quantum science tells a story of how we are all one. I feel glad to see my feelings proven. I have felt this in my heart all of my life. We are all connected.

Love yourself and love each other. It may not make you much money, but it will keep you honest. Treat others with respect and civility. Surround yourself with good people who love you. These are the keys to the "good life".

I was an operating room nurse. A job, a profession...it kept me thinking on my feet and able to focus and prioritize. It may not be the job for everyone, but it kept me from being bored. To say it's a dynamic atmosphere would be an understatement. Maybe more like dynamite at times...

If you are searching for a way to communicate, honestly and respectfully, join HubPages. If you would like to meet new friends from countries all over the world, join HubPages. Join this global community and learn.

Stay a while...read a bit...relax and smell the roses. We only get one time around this ride, so enjoy it and make it count!
