How Do We Uncover Our Own Greatness ?

Updated on February 27, 2011

It Is Time To Find Our Calling

We all have our own life to live

But wouldn't it be amazing if we all had something so special to give

Not just to a friend or a neighbor

The whole world can enjoy the fruits of all your labor

Many people in their lives search for greatness

Others will be happy with fame

Some want to be richer than rich and there is nothing they won't do to make their dreams come true

I am happy just living one more day

The world is made up with so many places

We can travel our lifetime and only scratch the surface of places to see

We can travel first class and dine at the finest resturaunts

Go to all the plays and concerts

Live the life of the high and mighty

I am so happy just to be low key and walk down the beach quietly

When the years pass us by

We have to think is this where I want to be

I would rather be fishing and dangling my hook with bait at the end hoping for a fish to bite than being a man with no promise

There are so many decisions and choices to make that might fall short of their expected potential

All I know is I am here and giving my best without any credentials

As time would have it the talented will succeed and many of their followers that will believe

Unfortunately some people will suffer and others will have a life even tougher

There will be a few who squeak by without a peep

Where do you fall in ?

I strongly believe what ever you put your mind to

Has to take time to resonate

I do everything in my thoughts to recyprocate

Life that is wonderful and has so much potential

I can not sleep my life away

I will write until my hands cease to respond to my every need

Writing about my life and the honest life I lead

I had a choice to choose one of many paths to follow

I took the road that was sure to lead to success

Personal happiness that can't be found anywhere

Unless we start with ourselves and care for the way we feel

So then other people can be treated with the utmost respect

Our journeys are endless

Why not make them Grand from the begining

Then all we have to do is watch as our lives unfold

In this way we can grow old with dignity and finesse'

Always hoping to make our life the sweetest memories that anyone could ever want

      Darlene Sabella I use to think that too.Then I realized it is just showing you care so much about the greatest gift you have been given and you will take care of your life and help others when you can.If you neglect yourself then you can't possibly help anyone else.That is just wrong and sad.But it happens and we have to be smart about our choices.Dim Flaxenwick You help so many and you don't even notice it.Well I am one who is proud to tell you as many times as it takes for you to understand Thank you for helping me and giving me the time to share my thoughts and my greatest gift with you my mind.As I go on my day I will think of DARLENE SABELLA AND DIM FLAXENWICK ALL DAY.I AM TRYING TO SEND MY THOUGHTS MENTALLY.SO WHEN YOU FEEL A GREAT FEELING OF WARMTH AND HAPPINESS IT MIGHT JUST BE ME:.)

      Me too my dear Dream on, personal happiness has always been my choice, other see this as being selfish or they feel abandoned. Yet I feel we could never make anyone happy if we ourselves are not...and yes that is something wonderful to share for the world. Great hub, I love & peace darski

      Acaetnna All I can do is try.I keep learning from others who have cleared the path before me.Sometimes that path grows back before I find it and then I am on my own.Thank you so much.

      I agree Dream On with your words here. Live for the moment and try to radiate happiness, smile at every opportunity. Let us experience what we desperately would like and live our lives to the full, because tomorrow is always an uncertainty.
