What is life all about?

Last Saturday I was woken with the call from my colleague that a lady who works with us in the state had passed on after been ill for about 10 days.

Ever since then  I have been pondering and wondering a lot about life, what is life itself?

Is it about the physical looks, the nice bum or upright bosoms?
Is it about the great job, the awesome pay, the foreign tours?
Is it about the beautiful girlfriend, later turned wife?
Is it about the tall, dark and handsome boo later turned husband?
is it about the cars, houses and fame?
Is it about power, politics and prestige?
Is it about family and friends?
Is it about you and me?
Well I might not have the answer for you, but for me I want to live in praise of God all the days of my life.

So many thoughts come to mind and I just wonder,
How Mahatma Gandhi thought about life?
How Mother Theresa thought about life?
How Nelson Mandela thought about life?
When Gandhi, Mother Theresa and Mandela lived did they plan to leave a legacy for themselves or it just happened? Well I think I can answer this. It did not just happen and if you keep waiting to have everything you desire to create a monumental change you will wait forever, so I indulge to start today to make something of life.

I hope the following questions will guide you as you begin to make something of life:
What am I most passionate about?
Do I want to be remembered by that?
What do I want to be remembered for?
What have I done today that will add up to what I want to be remembered for?

After a while ask yourself, what am I synonymous with?
Ask friends and family what comes to mind when you name is called?

It has to be something good and truly Godly.
I wish us all success as we begin to live for a defined purpose.
