I hope you all had a great weekend and is now ready to take on the week. My weekend was pretty eventful and I feel like it’s going to be a great week. Over the weekend, I came across these 7 things, some of which really had me thinking and I wanted to share with you all. Here are 7 things to keep in mind.

1. We give our lives meaning. If you feel like life is meaningless, it’s your responsibility to change it.

2. Everyone you love is going to die; so love them while they’re still here.

3. The perfect partner does not exist. Concentrate on finding someone who has a lot of qualities you like and the same values as you; then build a great relationship.

4. Life is a game. Find the games you want to play, learn the rules, and find a way to be successful at the games you selected.

5. Everything ends. Youth, love, life — they all end; that’s what makes them valuable.

6. Be romantic about the little things.

7. Be a realist about the big things. Life isn’t a movie; you need to have a plan. Have an artist’s ambition but an engineer’s mind-set.

What are your thoughts? Which do you agree with? Comment below and share.


Smile! Life is better when you’re laughing!

  1. First of all thank you for pass by my blog. I love your blog’s name ”pocketful of smiles”.
    I agreed what you wrote here. Everyone has to die and we should find the games, learn the rules.
    Do every job as a masterpiece because you may not have time to create another one tomorrow.
    Pay attention to the people in front of you because it could be the last time you see them.
    Happy Blogging 😉

  2. You certainly hit it on the head with the first one. There were periods where I felt like was meaningless, but sometimes it’s the timing rather than a choice. Last semester I was mostly studying in college, reading and trying to write my novel. “These are useful stuff!” you might say. But none of these stuff ever felt it was “enough”. This semester, I got my driver’s license, joined the cross country team, opened a YouTube channel, volunteered at Circle K, and joined a tap dancing class. And while these things fulfill me to a certain extent, Im still searching for “meaning.” For me, meaning is something that I can really strive for but I know will be WORTH it. Sometimes, I ask myself if pursuing any of the things I’m currently passionate about is “worth” it. Complicated I know, but I want to strive for greatness, Candice. I want my efforts to mean something to somebody else. I want to make an impact on the world.

    1. Hey Tiffany, thanks for sharing your story.
      I like to think that we can do a lot that will keep us busy, but the only thing that will ever be fulfilling to us are the things that we are truly passionate about. If you want to make a difference or an impact, I believe following your passion will eventually lead you to that. Our passion is linked to our purpose.
