What Do You Mean?

There is a Cherokee expression… When you were born, you cried and the world rejoiced. Live your life so that when you die, the WORLD cries and YOU rejoice.

When you have a sense of your own identity and a vision of where you want to go in your life, you then have the basis for reaching out to the world.  A motivation to go after your dreams for a better life.  When we are motivated by goals that have deep meaning, by dreams that need completion, by pure love that needs expressing — then we truly LIVE life.  I feel that I am working towards my vision of helping those in need with Win Win 4 A Cause.  This is what motivates me to live a better life and help others to do the same.

Below are quotes about life’s meaning from some of our better known “philosophers”.  Words to live by."A Single Flower"
