Oh Maria, I've come to realize that I have strived, and will continue to strive for many many things. Each day is a new beginning with it's own challenges and balancing acts. Every stage and phase of life, brings with it, different issues to deal with, obstacles to tackle and gifts to appreciate.
Time never stops, but goes on and on and with it are "changes. " The world changes, we strive to keep up with the flow and remain a productive part of the whole system
If I had to choose something that I feel is important enough for me to continually strive for, it would be the ability to keep going forward, gain knowledge, experience, awareness and gratitude. I want to always keep my piece of the world, healthy, happy and productive.....and in any way possible, maintain a positive and generous heart.
All that you have listed above......those are all the things that we attract, directly into our life....by first acting upon them.....We receive what we give.......to accomplish, feel security and excitement, and have the power of love and knowledge.....simply GIVE them......they will come back, full circle. It's the natural way of the Universe.
